Transcript of Sex Education Ethics Presentation

Sex Education...Good or Bad?
- Not a valid subject --> it is not taken seriously.
- Simply put, it would be unhealthy not to.
- Children should not be taught sex education in schools because it is an infringement of parental duties.
- Culture & Religious Beliefs
- Teachers may not necessarily be the best mediums.
Where Do I Stand?
As a person that went through a sex education class I truly think that it is beneficial. I was never given a "sex talk" at home or informed about STD's, or birth control any other place besides school. I wouldn't say that having sex education caused anymore curiosity than normal, but the difference is that I was able to make a choice about my sex life based on facts from an unbiased adult rather than a relative/parent saying "it is wrong before marriage" or "abstinence is the only option".
- Countries without sex education have lower teen pregnancies and STIs
- Where else would it be taught?
- Show them blunt reality
- Should be given at an appropriate age.
- Comprehensive Program teaches facts without bias.
- Provides information on safe sex-if one decides that they are going to be sexually active.
- Sex myths
- Taught correct terminology.
- Teaching now --> Benefit Later
- Curriculum-based sex education is a key strategy for promoting safer sexual behaviors for adolescents and young adults.
- Sex Education should advertise abstinence as the only option- not a comprehensive programs.
- Parents argue that they don't believe it is wise to trust someone they don't know with their child on this topic.
- Delays Sexual Interaction
In the United States more than 750,000 girls ages 15-19 become pregnant every year. More than 80% of these are unplanned pregnancies.
Young people ages 15-25 contract 19 million STDs annually.
Two young people, ages 13-29, contract HIV every hour.
