Sex Education


NOW supports age appropriate comprehensive sex education. Abstinence-only education has been proven to be dangerous and ineffective, and has no place in our health care reform legislation. But Senator Orrin Hatch’s (R-Utah) abstinence-only-until-marriage amendment is being inserted into legislation at every opportunity — and we need your help to strike it when it reaches the House or Senate floor. Women everywhere need Congress to support comprehensive sex education programs, not ideological crusades.
