Utah House Passes Bill Forbidding All Sex Ed But Abstinence-Only
Newser: Utah Bill Bars Sex-Ed Unless It's Abstinence-Only, by Rob Quinn:
A bill passed by Utah's House of Representatives gives schools a choice: Teach sex education that's all about not having sex, or drop sex ed. The bill, which allows schools to skip sex education, and bars those that keep it from discussing contraception, was passed 45-28 after a heated discussion about morality, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. All 17 of the chamber's Democrats voted against it, along with 11 Republicans. . . .
