Almost all of these comments are obviously from the Planned Parenthood Network and/or their supporters. Ya'll need to get your facts straight and stop repeating the mantras from Planned Parenthood. They make money off of sex, so it is a conflict of interest for them to be pushing sex education on middle and high school students!
Since Heritage Keepers has never been taught at Wando High School, it must have been the "safe sex" education taught that was incorrect and had medically inaccurate information. Suicide is not even part of Heritage Keepers curriculum. Even the teacher from Fort Moultrie in the article admits that East Cooper schools have teachers willing to teach middle and high schools "safe sex", including the instructions on dental dams for oral sex.
Also, research conducted by Doug Kirby, a Comprehensive Sex Ed advocate, shows that students are no less likely to use condoms if they hear an abstinence message. Condom education and condoms are everywhere. With regards to Comprehensive Sex Education, there is no "normal emphasis on abstinence" unless you mean telling students at the beginning of sex class that abstinence is the safest and then moving on into "safe sex" with detailed instructions on how to use dental dams for oral sex, and acting out erotic sex play.
The Heritage Foundation (not Heritage Keepers) did a study (http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2…) on high school students that were not having sex compared to those having sex and using protection. The students not having sex, at all, were far more likely to do well, graduate on time and go to college. The sexually active students, even those using condoms or taking contraception, were far more likely to not graduate and/or not go to college. So, academic achievement is VERY connected to sexual activity because sex brings drama and it is hard to focus on academics if involved in sex and the hook-up culture. So, if any of you are interested in students graduating and doing well in their academics so that they are not on welfare and draining your wallets, you had better stop condoning and pushing sex on these teens.
With the CDC reporting that almost 75% of teens (17 and younger) nationally surveyed are not having sex, it would seem that the adults in their lives would be supportive of abstinence rather than condemning it and pushing them into sexual activity to match with what is coming out of Planned Parenthood, the Department of Education, the media and Hollywood.
