A bill that would require abstinence-only sex education in Utah public schools passed both houses of the legislature and is waiting for Governor Herbert to sign it into law.
HB363 defines sex education in Utah schools as abstinence-only, banning instruction about sexual intercourse, contraceptive methods, homosexuality and sexual activity outside of marriage. It moved through the Utah legislature with ease, and enjoys the support of some of Utah's conservative organizations, like the Utah Eagle Forum.
"It's a great bill," said Gayle Ruzicka, president of the Utah Eagle Forum, "(a) law that will teach children the skills that the need in order to remain pure and clean and chaste."
Our children need to be given enough information about sex so they are able to make good, informed decisions. Please help convince Governor Gary Herbert to veto HB363 by signing the petition. http://signon.org/sign/gov-herbert-veto-hb363.fb1?source=s.fb&r_by=3109014
