Possible Changes To Sex Ed Curriculum In Illinois Classrooms
Possible Changes To Sex Ed Curriculum In Illinois Classrooms

Sex education is causing a bit of a rift  in the legislature.  A new bill would require schools that teach Sex Ed to include lessons on contraceptive methods, including abstinence, for kids in 6th through 12th grades.

Supporters say kids are having sex earlier these days so they need to understand the risks associated with it.  Plus, they say the kids should know how to protect themselves from STD’s.  Opponents argue the measure would give kids the idea that sex before marriage is OK.  The bill is headed to Governor Quinn’s desk.
