Kids in sixth through twelfth grades could soon get more education on abstinence. State rep Camille Lilly is behind a plan that would require public schools to incorporate lessons on abstinence and birth control into their sex-education curricula. The extra lessons are designed to help kids understand how to prevent pregnancy and disease.
Parents who don't want their kids to be part of the conversations could have them taken out the class. The bill passed the House and heads to the Senate.
