Two California moms are suing a Central Valley school district over its abstinence-only sex education.
The moms are saying the policy puts students’ health at risk by failing to give teens information about condoms and contraception and about how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases.
The civil lawsuit against the Clovis Unified School District was filed in Fresno County Superior Court on Tuesday by the two parents, the California District of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Gay-Straight Alliance Network.
The ACLU is representing the groups and the two mothers, Aubree Smith and Mica Ghimenti.
“Our kids need complete, accurate information to help them protect themselves against STDs and unintended pregnancy,” said Smith, a mother of a 17-year-old daughter at Clovis High School in Clovis.
“Our children need to know more about sex education than abstinence-only,” said Ghimenti, a mother of three children in the Clovis district. Both women work in medical-related fields; Ghimenti is a health education instructor and Smith is a registered nurse.
The civil lawsuit is the first of its kind in California since the passage of a 2003 law requiring that sexual health education in public schools be comprehensive and medically accurate, said Phyllida Burlingame, reproductive justice policy director at the ACLU of Northern California.
That two mothers in California have sued the district, seems to be an example of nuisance.
But I am rather is the criminalization of good examples.
How can you get sexual diseases when abstaining from sex?
If every youth had waited for marriage to have sex with their wife, and the married couple were faithful to each other, that would have been the end of sexual diseases.
This is as simple logic as 1+1 = 2.
Jesus told us through the Apostle Paul that those who live in adultery will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
So this is not a trivial matter, but a matter of life or death.
Do you read me?
