In many places sex education is not required by law, and where it is required there are no laws regarding what is taught. Kids need to learn about their bodies and healthy sex practices without hearing limited, biased information. Abstinence is pushed on students as the only good option and things such as STDs and pregnancy are used to scare them. On top of this, most schools do not include LGBT sex ed, leaving many students without proper education. This correction in health education will help young adults learn in a safe environment how to stay clean and safe, while helping reduce teen pregnancy and STD rates. On top of these benefits, research shows that teen perpetrated rapes go down when consent and proper sex education is taught to students.
