The Utah Senate on Wednesday passed a bill that would effectively ban comprehensive education about human sexuality, forcing schools to teach abstinence or nothing at all.
The measure will now go to the desk of Gov. Gary Herbert (R) to be signed into law. The governor has declined to say if he will sign the bill.
The bill forbids advocating for “the use of contraceptive methods or devices,” sex outside marriage or homosexuality. It also restricts teaching about sexual intercourse or erotic behavior.

Why does America allow over zealous religious fanatics to dictate education policy in schools?
You may aswel just move to Israel or Saudi Arabia.

wonder if some of the people voting for it have shares in companies that make nappies/baby milk? as it seems like it would be the only winner from such a law
“Education...beyond all other devices of human origin, is a great equalizer of conditions of men --the balance wheel of the social machinery...It does better than to disarm the poor of their hostility toward the rich; it prevents being poor.”
