Menendez Co-Sponsoring Anti-Abstinence Sex Education Legislation

Maybe he was doing research in the Dominican Republic

BobMenendez111610U.S. Senator Bob Menendez is co-sponsoring the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act, a bill that would expand comprehensive sex  education programs in schools, while ensuring that federal funds are spent on  “effective, age-appropriate and medically accurate” programs, according to The Hill.

The Real Education for Healthy Youth Act aims to reduce unintended  pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and expand sex education  programs at colleges and universities. The bill would also prevent federal funds  from being spent on “ineffective, medically inaccurate” sex-education  programs.

“Research has shown that programs which teach abstinence and contraception  effectively delay the onset of sexual intercourse, reduce the number of sexual  partners, and increase contraceptive use among teens,” Lee said. “These programs  also reduce unintended pregnancy and the transmission of sexually transmitted  infections, including HIV.”

Senator Frank Lautenberg and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) are the primary sponsors of the legislation.
