So why do SO many who hate abortion also oppose sex ed in schools AND free condoms/access to doctors/birth control coverage on health care/minor child's right to prescription privacy?
More BC=fewer abortions.
No idea. Sex Ed was taught in my tiny little KS school over 20 years ago, did they stop doing it? If KS was doing it then, I'm sure the majority of the rest of the country was/is as well.
