Right now, many schools do not teach about contraception and condoms; some even limit how teachers may respond to students' questions about sexual health beyond abstinence. Over 88% of young people support comprehensive sex education, which includes information about sex, sexuality and contraception, as well as abstinence. If you agree, sign the petition supporting comprehensive sex education, then send an e-mail to Congress and the President.
