WI bill would mandate contraceptive education

Via the JSOnline:

All public schools that teach sex education would be required to instruct students about birth control and sexually transmitted diseases, under a bill headed to Gov. Jim Doyle. The Democratic governor said Thursday he would sign the bill, which all Republicans opposed. It’s unclear how many school districts would have to change their curriculum, but the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District would have to end an abstinence-only program it offers.

  1. GOOD. Abstinence-only doesn’t work. It doesn’t. There is data out the wazoo supporting comprehensive sex ed programs as the way to go. Just because we teach teens about proper contraception doesn’t mean they’re going to run out and have sex. If anything, as soon as you tell a teenager NOT to do something, it’s the first thing they’re going to do.

    I’m really excited about this.
