Check these out, too...
All we’ve gotta say is…really, Utah? Regardless of
conservative politics, moral values or religious beliefs, in this day and age,
is it really smart to completely eliminate sex-ed from public schools? We get
that waiting until marriage for sex is a value many Americans ascribe to. But
even if a girl decides to wait, wouldn’t it be better for her to be fully
informed of her options and simply opt not to go there rather than to
potentially make one uninformed decision that affects her entire life?
No matter your stance on sex-ed or the act itself, facts are
facts. More than three-quarters of girls have had sex before they turn 20—and that’s
for girls who’ve had sex ed. The number jumps to 86 percent without a solid
sex-ed curriculum. Eliminating sex-ed doesn’t seem to reduce rates of sexual
activity, it increases them, yahoo.com
reports. And if teens are going to be having sex regardless of what anyone says
or does, shouldn’t they be having safe sex? We certainly think so.
this post? You’ll heart these, too!

POSTED IN sex ed, In the News
This is horrible... not only does it mean more pregnancy but not allowed to talk about homosexuality? many people estimate that 10% of people are homosexual. that's one-tenth of utah's population that will not know what to do and obviously receive NO support from schools!

i think sex ed is super important. it made me realize the dangers of sex and made me want to wait
by hjr811 on 4/8/2012 7:21:36 PM
All right, FIRST OFF, Yes, GL could have phrased it better to say the they were blaming the GOVERNMENT of Utah or something, but we are all smart people here, ladies. We should be MATURE enough to know that they are not talking about the ENITRE state of Utah (Meaning Citizens AND Government) Honestly in my opinion, if you can't figure that out or you just want to start some random drama,you should GET OFF THIS PAGE AND STOP READING THE MAGAZINE. No one should flip over some words that weren't phrased well.
by XxUTookMahFonexX on 4/7/2012 5:07:14 PM
Ok, I'm pretty sure this was said already, but the law wasn't passed. The Governor veto-ed it because it was that ridiculous. Not trying to sound mean, I just don't like all the hate towards my state....

It could be that they are just concerned or afraid of things getting to explicit in class. I know we are all different and some of us can handle learning some things at 11 or 12 and some cant at 13. Like in our health class they showed pictures of guys 'down there', some of us didnt think it was a big deal but some did.
And then you do hear that some schools get very explicit and show how a condom should go on and how to properly use one. Maybe they were just concerned over stuff like that. But I think we should know about the basics and how to protect ourselves. erin m. erin m.
by luckykel on 3/28/2012 2:23:16 PM
Trust me, us Utah teens are just as flipped. A highschool in UT has the highest prego rate in the US yet they wonder why? If people are blaming it on all of UT I can say stop. If you guys are willing to blame us find out who in the state you are blaming. We feel that we need this education as well and my teachers practically tell us that condoms and birth control don't work and if we ever have sex outside of marriage we will get aids and die or never have a happy relationship. Honestly, we and a lot of our parents are outraged by our lack of sexual education.
by alli_rawryew13 on 3/25/2012 7:24:33 PM
I'm actually not 100% sure that it's completely passed. It says that it is on some websites, but on others it talks about people vetoing it... not sure exactly what it all means.. but why are we really having an argument over it? It's Utah's decision!! (Ha. Utah's decision. )

by LiveLaughLove4 on 3/16/2012 7:44:31 PM
That kinda makes me mad that they cant talk about homosexuality... like, really? It is a lifestyle!
by LiveLaughLove4 on 3/16/2012 7:41:39 PM
I also don't like how you said, "shouldn't they be having safe sex? We certainly think so!"
Because you say it like everyone who doesn't believe what you believe is really stupid.
by spencer9800 on 3/16/2012 6:23:44 PM
It's unfair that people are blaming all of Utah. What do the people who live here have to do with it? It's not our choice, so all of you stop acting like it is.

by spencer9800 on 3/16/2012 9:07:34 AM
This is just sad some girl is going to be pressured into sex and she wont be prepared or understand how to not get pregnant or know about Std s this is why there are so many pregnant teens in the us today... channa r.

Okay when i read the title even i was shocked! I mean for real Utah????? Like it said not having sex ed isn't going to stop teens from having sex so they should know how to protect themselves!!!!
by Bayandkay143 on 3/15/2012 7:42:06 PM
I live in Utah!! I didn't know they weren't doing that anymore. It would be super super awkward, but if they don't... it's not going to end well!
by Nanafofanna on 3/15/2012 7:17:42 PM
Yea lots of people dont know but should i mean come on im in sixth grade and in May we have sex ed and its going to be awkward but it will be helpful in the future

utah should have sex education like how in batesville,us 6th graders have it sometimes.i mean,really,utah.they should really have. boo utah!!! erin m.
by divachick422 on 3/15/2012 3:35:42 PM
Well, wouldn't you want to be informed and not even have sex rather than having sex, not being informed, and having a STD or even worse a kid at 16?
by physicschick on 3/15/2012 3:32:41 PM
Hey- drug use isn't safe either, so why don't the public schools stop teaching about drugs and let the kids find out by themselves? (I am in not hating on Utah, just the idea.)This type of legislature is a slippery slope.
by SleepEatSoccer on 3/14/2012 8:29:53 PM
guys, this has nothing to do with utah. It is just a stupid law. You shouldn't get so defensive
by jster on 3/14/2012 3:06:19 PM
I think that if kids don't learn about things like sex and related things, they will grow up to make wrong decisions and face consequences that they wouldn't even had to worry about if they knew what they were getting themselves into. I think Utah made a big mistake.
by running17 on 3/14/2012 12:08:46 PM
I think that it's important to know about these things at any age. The people Utah shouldn't feel like GL is bashing on them. I know people have their state pride and what not but I believe that even if you aren't having sex before marriage, just be aware that it's not just teens that get STD's and things of that nature. And it's not finalized yet, it's just a bill. I'm from Portland(Oregon that is) and we have sex-ed every year and while I'm not Mormon, I have a lot of friends that are and don't complain about the content of the Health classes, they support it while maintaining their other values( waiting marriage and anti-abortions).
Thanks for reading!
by deezygrl on 3/14/2012 8:37:08 AM
I think sex ed is important, even at our age. So many people I know at school are having sex and doing it unprotected but there are also a lot of them being smart and using the pill and condoms. I am happy I had the talk with my mom, she was open about sex.
Our sex ed class was very informative, I guess the only controversial issue and it was a big one was when we were shown what STD's looked like, our teacher showed us a number of actual pictures, and all of guys and their down there parts, I mean it showed it all and they were close ups. I am sure some of my friends werent ready for that but it isnt anything you cant find online. I also say you can do your own sex ed research online and get what you need from birth control to anatomy stuff.
by luckykel on 3/13/2012 11:48:32 PM
Okay, everyone who thinks Utah made a stupid descision, stop it. Everyone who lives in Utah who is bashing GL and other people's opinions, stop it! It's all opinionated! We are all supposed to be friends, not enemies. Really, is one person going to change Utah's decsicion? Nope. And really, is one person going to change someone else's opinion? Nada. Nope. Ziltch. Goose egg. No! So stop it, please! I honestly love Sex Ed, because it gives you all the right information, some people hate it... A ton! I think all schools should have it! That said, I don't believe that because of this, 1,000,000 Utahns are going to be pregnant and have STD's. I respect everyone's opinion. Thank you for reading this.
by New_York_City on 3/13/2012 11:28:52 PM
EEEEXCUSE ME? Girlslife, I am a Utahn, I feel like you're saying that we have no control of ourselves, and if we don't have sex-ed, we'll become sluts. We know how to make decisions for ourselves thank you very much!
by glowingrock on 3/13/2012 9:55:02 PM
I dont agree with this, but I have a lot of family in Utah and it is really different than the rest of the U.S. (Thanks Aislinn120 for pointing that out). I think sex ed is really important for a lot of girls- and guys too. And fashionguru6 adoption will NOT leave kids "devastated"
by Beachychick on 3/13/2012 9:53:06 PM
I think this law is just plain messed up. I think sex-ed is one of the most important sections they learn about in school. It scares the curious girls and boys so they don't have sex at an early age, and just wait till they are older and more mature for the problems that could occur. And for the daring, it tells them how to have safe sex and not get themselves or their partner hurt.
want whats best for this generation? Don't ban a class that might effect the rest of our lives.
by HawiianIggy123 on 3/13/2012 9:35:01 PM
Its just not smart.
by bellygirl1997 on 3/13/2012 8:36:24 PM
This is such a ridiculous law!! How are [us] girls suppose to learn about abstinence? Like really! How are [us] girls, suppose to be educated on safe sex. HELLO do you know how many pregnant teens there are? Yeah, banning that will really help the pregnancy rates... GO UP! WTF Utah!!!

Sorry to post again,but what's wrong with the right? Honestly,it seems like the right only gets attacked. And it seems like Girl's Life only tries not to offend the left and athiests.
by iluvmusic♥ on 3/13/2012 7:02:07 PM
It's not the school's job to teach kids about that kind of thing. These kids have parents that are perfectly capable of teaching their children about safe sex. It's not like they're completely banning everyone in the state from talking about it- they're just not going to teach about it in schools.
by heathuuuur on 3/13/2012 7:01:46 PM
I have to agree,why attack Utah? And the way girls are going to protect themselves from STDs is to not have sex! That simple! Sometimes Girl's Life really makes me angry...
by iluvmusic♥ on 3/13/2012 6:48:52 PM
How ridiculous. Abstinence-only education is simply not effective. A choice between more and less knowledge is never a choice.
Also, this seems to reflect a worrying trend. As reflected in this year's crop of Republican candidates, there is a drift to the right in this country. Trying to pander to extremism is a bad idea.
by peaches and raspberries on 3/13/2012 6:36:28 PM
I think that its a resionable choice. No girl should be putting their selfs out like that but what i think is they've made a right choice. Notice as most teens at ages 12-16 are having kids of their own when they are a kid. Then having to set them up for adoption leaves those kids devistated in the future. Or if they have an ibortion it kills the population that could become a good nation if we teach them. Most people arent doing it right anyway thats were 16 and pregnant and teen mom come in to teach tweens or teens to go in a bad path.

by katieoct30 on 3/13/2012 6:11:11 PM
Girlslife, please, next time before you post an article like this, consider the social and religious cultures in Utah. Much different from the rest of the States. Please don't write a critical article about something you know nothing about. Hear the other side's story as well and stop judging.
by Aislinn120 on 3/13/2012 5:55:12 PM
You shouldn't judge Utah but anyways I sorta agree with y'all. I mean, shouldn't they teach a little bit of it to inform what it can do, especially if you have it before marriage? I also think because of this law it will increase sexual activity. Yet again, Utah may have a good reason not to teach it though so you gotta see it both ways.
by Sheyenne on 3/13/2012 5:48:35 PM
This law is really irresponsible. Just because some lawmakers may have the conservative belief that sex before marriage is wrong, doesn't mean everyone feels that way. If kids are going to have sex, and a lot of them do, they should know how to do it safely. This isn't saying that kids should be having sex, but the fact is a lot of them do. If they choose not to, then great! But not everyone plans on remaining abstinent until marriage, and for those who don't, sex ed is definitely needed.

by DaNcInGQu33N9812 on 3/13/2012 5:26:57 PM
Also, it's not always best if a child's parents are left as their only source of information. A child's parents will simply tell them "don't do it", which we all know most of the time is not obeyed; while a school program will not simply teach kids not to do it, it will teach kids to be safe, which is better. Think about it. If teens are going to do it anyway, wouldn't you rather them be taught how to be as safe as possible and fully aware of all of the consequences?
by erinthemaster on 3/13/2012 4:58:38 PM
Guys, you don't live in Utah! Seriously. Stop freaking out about a state you don't even live in! Like this is going to effect you. Leave Utah alone. Until you move here and go to class here, leave us alone. K? And wow Girls Life. This is low. Really low. Don't dis on Utah. You come live here first, take some classes, and then judge us.
by wakeboardchick7 on 3/13/2012 4:53:58 PM
For the people saying stuff about Utah, it doesn't matter whether it was in Utah or any other state. It being done in Utah as opposed to another state makes no difference whatsoever. Utah and the rest of the country teach similar things in their sex ed classes, it's not like Utah makes anything different. Now I don't live in Utah, but really, how would one state's sex ed program be THAT much different than another's? It wouldn't. But I do not agree with this law, I do believe if teenagers are taught properly then they are able to make a more civilized decision, and if they are not, well, it's the parents' responsibilities to educate their children as well. So no, I would not blame the state for unproperly educated children, but I see absolutely no reason whatsoever to completely rid all the schools of the program.
by erinthemaster on 3/13/2012 4:53:14 PM
Utah... really?!?!!? That's really stupid. They should have sex-ed class, because I think it's really important! It could stop girls from deciding they want to have sex at a young age. I don't think girls should do it when their young. After their married, they can do it all they want. Right now is our time! It's time to make small mistakes, not one's that could lead to a child. None of our parents want us to have a kid this young, because they know how much of a responsibility it is. If we aren't responsible enough to listen to them about that, what makes us think we would be responsible enough for a HUMAN!?!?!?
by vampire17 on 3/13/2012 4:44:15 PM
Thank you @Aislinn120 and loveTC47! Don't judge Utah just because we said we shouldn't learn about sex from teachers but parents! Gosh. No offence, but you've gone too low, Girls Life. Be in Utah before you judge.
by wakeboardchick7 on 3/13/2012 4:33:36 PM
What this law is meant to do is show that public schools do not have the right to enforce a certain belief system--they should remain neutral on issues instead of biasing children. Perhaps it is not expressed in the best way, since children should be informed but not swayed to either side of the argument. Telling kids they can get birth control and confidential clinic visits, something I've found to be the staple of sex ed, undermines parent's authority, which they have over the child until the child legally becomes an adult. Not to mention that sex ed doesn't discourage children from undermining the law, as it does not put abstinence in an attractive light. This does not mean that all minors cannot handle the emotional and/or physical effects of sex, but like the laws preventing minors from voting, it keeps the largest percentage of people who are not able to make an informed decision out of it. Sex ed either needs to be overhauled or done away with. Utah simply took the first step.
by Chandra Pop on 3/13/2012 4:28:30 PM
This is an irresponsible decision. While many people wish that their children would stay abstinent until marriage, it's not a choice that everyone makes. People should know about the dangers of sex and how to protect themselves should they choose to do it. I get that many people wish that parents would teach their children these things,but many young adults would have some difficulty in asking questions that they could ask a teacher with no problems.
by spros55 on 3/13/2012 4:28:16 PM
Really? Yup. Let's all freak out about the law in Utah. Okay. You don't live in Utah. You don't go to class in Utah. I do and I support this law. You don't see what they teach us okay? So before you dis on Utah, how about you go to class there and see what they teach. Don't judge a book by it's cover.
by wakeboardchick7 on 3/13/2012 4:28:03 PM
that's rly stupid.

And also,why should you decide whether or not someone lives? It's not fair,and you have to admit that.
by iluvmusic♥ on 3/13/2012 12:50:03 PM
Well,if you don't know stuff,don't try. It just seems a bit stupid to jump into something that you don't even know stuff about. And yes,this class could help,but do we honestly need learn this stuff from school? It should come from parents. It really makes me sad that there are so many young teens doing this that we actually need a class about it :/
by iluvmusic♥ on 3/13/2012 12:45:59 PM
But if the girls don't know how to protect theirselves, they can get pregnant at a very young age!
I myself have a purity ring because I'm waiting until marriage, but sex-ed is important! It teaches them about STI/STDs wich can pretty much ruin someone's life.
I think the information should be a little from parents & a little from teachers.
by Blushing-Beauty on 3/13/2012 11:26:56 AM
Personally, I think parents should tell their kids about sex but how many parents do?
by Rosethe1 on 3/13/2012 11:09:07 AM
How are you not going to teach this to kids?

by *GingerForev* on 3/13/2012 9:29:32 AM
This is most def.ly the most dumbest thing they can do . If you want to generate more educated people in the society this isnt the way to go ! POINT BLANK
by nakia_cee on 3/13/2012 8:16:35 AM
I think that is ridiculous pretending like there isn't a problem wont make it go away. Personally I know waiting till marriage is a little hard especially when you've been with someone for a long time. Yes it is definatly the best thing and should be attempted at all cost but still. I think they need to address the issue and help so there aren't more teen parents.
by animalgirl13 on 3/13/2012 7:47:49 AM
Everyone, I lived in Utah, the Mormons there are very much against anything before marriage. That subject is one that mothers/fathers should tell their children. Mormons are not allowed to do "it" before marriage, it is a sin to them. Abortions are not allowed except in extremely rare cases for a good reason such as the child would not be able to survive after birth, or would cause the mother harm. The mother would tell the child what is going to happen when they start puberty. I am not a Mormon, but I lived in Utah long enough to know most of their customs.
I say way to go Utah! People should learn from their parents, not their teachers!
Next time everyone, please do some research before saying something ridiculous.
by Aislinn120 on 3/12/2012 9:18:46 PM
ok this is what i feel! they should teach sex-ed in school, because yes the parents have to teach there kids about it. but most of them DONT! and thats the truth! and yeah its bad to have sex at a young age. but if there going to do it, they should at least now how to protect themself! no matter what anyone says!!!
by j4zm09 on 3/12/2012 9:09:02 PM
Three-quarters?!?!?! And that's WITH sex ed! Gosh! I am waiting until I'm married!
by Doodle600 on 3/12/2012 9:04:00 PM
This is almost as bad as Texas taking out the Civil War/slavery from history textbooks. Yes, facts are facts, and we need to know them! Besides, everyone at my school loves sex ed: we don't have normal classes and all you have to do is sit there and listen! And what middle/high schooler isn't interested? If kids aren't even told about abortion/ birth control pills/ other methods of preventing children, they have a much higher chance of becoming teen moms, which NO ONE WANTS!!! Even later in life, it could affect them, like when they are married, but they don't want another kid? They might never know about birth control!
by coracat on 3/12/2012 8:58:49 PM
K. First of all, nobody should be having s e x, safe or not until their married. But now Utah is outlawing teaching the students how bad it is. But, you've got to admit, Utah has a point. At my middle school, the boys always joke about it and be immature. If moms think that it's important enough, just send them somewhere else. They have s e x classes for high schoolers at the library in my town.
by Echosong on 3/12/2012 8:45:12 PM
First of all, I do not believe that a woman has the "right" or should "have the choice" to kill her baby. (should a criminal have the right to kill someone?)
Also, about your "facts", just because a lot of girls have sex, doesn't mean it's good for them, or that it's right.
And, it may seem like everyone believes in "safe sex" but they don't(some people believe that the only "safe sex" is with your husband/wife, whom you love enough to have sex with at risk of getting sick or pregnant.) PUBLIC SCHOOLS SHOULD NOT IMPOSE BELIEFS ONTO THE CHILDREN AGAINST THE WILL OF THE PARENTS.
Sex-ed should be up to the child's parents, who know the child, and not to a school with a curriculum that they teach everyone.
by spencer9800 on 3/12/2012 8:34:02 PM
That's stupid. Really? A lot of people in high school do do "it" I find nothing wrong with it as long as its protected and both people are comfortable with it. But if teens aren't taught about protecting it, they'll be tons of teen pregnancies!!!

I live in Ontario, Canada and we MUST learn about this stuff. In grade 7 we have to get our hepB shots and before we get them we have to fill out a booklet on why we are getting them and whats its proventing. Like, kids need to learn this stuff. Without being taught, the kids arent gonna know what could happen to them so theres gonna be a bunch of Utah highschool girls getting pregnant and having STD's because no one taught them how to prevent... So... WHAT THE HECK
by SuperSavvy on 3/12/2012 8:02:33 PM
Im going to be in my sex-ed unit soon and it sounds intereting. I think it was a bad thing what Utah did. Kids need to learn about these things.
by Milkdog64 on 3/12/2012 7:46:43 PM
Ever stupid. In a few years, there will be so many teen pregnancies and STD's. Way to go, Utah.

Ok i get that teens shouldn't be HAVING sex but that doesn't mean thay shouldn't know about it!

LoveTC247 that's an amazing idea, i hope someone tells Utah that, utah chicks what do u think?

If they teach you not to have sex until married, that's cool, but do you really want to give up your virginity to a 16 year old guy you'll never see again most likely? Just be patient. And don't take the risk with birth control. The only guaranteed one is no sex at all.It can still get past, and that could result in another innocent baby being killed. If they must, they should at least have the parents approve the class, and I think the parents should know what they're going to be talking about.

I have a solution! Let sex ed be an elective class, like choir or band. People should get to choose if they want to take that class or not. And with the society we live in these days, you don't need to take sex ed o be informed about sex. I know some people who would actually enjoy taking that class, where as others, like me, would rather jump off a cliff. And I'm going to stop right there and shut my mouth before I start WWIII. Toodles! I'm going to go ask my mom if we can move to Utah

i'll be completely honest, i am in nooo way against pre marital sex as long as if its with someone you love and not just because you wonder what it's like. and this is the dumbest thing i've ever heard!! just because you don't openly talk about sex doesn't mean that the kids will stay abstinent (as if it's not their choice to have sex or not), just like not talking about homosexuality won't make a gay person any more straight. its just stupid. i hope they enjoy having a ton more heartbroken pregnant girls running aroung their public schools, i guess that is what they'll need to see to make them understand that teens should be informed about options.

Not cool! it's like abortion rights- you should be given the choice & knowledge of safe sex: just like you should be given the option of abortion. It's a right.
