The Real Education & Access for Healthy Youth Act

S 1689 | HR 3312

SOPHE recognizes that sexuality is a natural and healthy part of development and comprises biological, sociocultural, psychological, and spiritual dimensions. Comprehensive approaches to sexuality education that educate young people in the areas of abstinence, contraception, and STI/HIV prevention are more effective at delaying the onset of sexual intercourse and increasing contraception use than those which teach abstinence as the only acceptable method of preventing STIs and unwanted pregnancies for young people.
