Sex Education? Not In Utah!

At least if Republicans have their way.

A bill passed by Republicans in the Utah House of Representatives would effectively ban comprehensive education about human sexuality, forcing schools to teach abstinence or nothing at all.

The bill forbids advocating for “the use of contraceptive methods or devices,” sex outside marriage or homosexuality. It also restricts teaching about sexual intercourse or erotic behavior.

This sounds like a real good idea… Yeah, I’m just kidding. This bill is one of the dumbest ideas I’ve heard in a while!

So you’re not going to teach anything but abstinence. The GOP will only have themselves to blame when the incidence of teen pregnancies and STD’s goes up in Utah…although they will probably try to pass the buck to someone else. Or kids in Utah will just watch a lot of porn.
