Sex Education

When it comes to sex education, schools should teach the facts. Teens need to know the risks of having sex. There are many reasons why teens should wait to have sex. But teens also need to understand how to stay safe and protect themselves from disease.

Take Action

Urge Congress to Make Sex Ed a Priority

After years of denying teens the facts about birth control, rates of sexually transmitted infections have reached epidemic levels. It’s a problem we can fix if enough of us tell Congress to make it a priority.

Stories

Lela, 24

I had my first child when I was only 15 years old, a ninth grader in junior high.

Merry, 54

In 1972, as a 16 year old girl in high school, I instituted the “sex information center” at James Madison High School in Brooklyn, NY.

The Problem

 Many opponents of choice work to block schools from teaching teens the facts about sex and staying safe.

Our Solution

Our country needs to make fighting teen pregnancy a priority. The federal government and the states should invest more money in sex-education programs that work.


News & Updates

"Abstinence-Only" Programs are Plain Offensive

Should a teen ever be told she's like a used piece of chewing gum? See what other analogies "abstinence-only" programs use to scare students. Young people deserve accurate information about sex and birth control, not lies like these.

Good News from New York

The New York State Assembly passed the Women's Equality Act. Next stop: the State Senate!
