The 1973 Roe versus Wade decision was hailed as a victory by many advocates of a woman’s right to choose. But decades later, many young people still lack the resources to make informed choices about sex – choices that could affect the rest of their lives.

On this edition, we bring you a discussion about sex education in schools, federal funding for sex-ed and how advocacy groups and parents are making their voices heard on the issue.

Featuring:

Phyllida Burlingame, American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California Sex Education Policy Director; La Rhonda Crosby-Johnson, Bay Area Communities for Health Education Community Engagement Specialist; Gabriela Valle, California Latinas for Reproductive Justice Director of Community Education & Mobilization.

  1. This is in regard to the show epidode “Sex, lies, and the classroom”.I cant help but wonder exactly who is behind abstanance only education as sex ed? It seems as though the health care industry and big pharma as well as the lobbyists and religon are working together to get undereducated, ignorant, uninsured, future blue collar workers to get knocked up and have lots of sick babies. So that the same ones behind the scenes will financially benefit.
