Advocates Circulate Sex Ed Petition

Written by NYRA Nov 06, 2003

A petition for honest sexual education is currently being circulated by a NYRA ally. The people responsible for the petition were hoping to have 50,000 signatures already, but they still encourage people to sign it. The petition, sponsored by Advocates for Youth, cites parallels between sexual education and drug education as reasoning to avoid a “just say no” approach to sex ed. Advocates for Youth feels that young people need to know the truth about sex, and too often they are kept from the facts which leads to problems. They believe that abstinence is still a good method of protection, but they also say that contraception should be taught as well. While NYRA does not work on sex ed, we feel it is important to highlight the efforts of other pro-youth organizations. It is fair to assume that many individuals who support Youth Rights will be interested in signing this petition.
