Did you know that in Missouri, sex education isn't required? And when sex education is taught, it's not necessary to mention or stress the importance of birth control and condoms to prevent unintended pregnancies and STIs for those who do decide to engage in sexual activity.
In 2015, the Legislature did make a small, but necessary update to the sex education requirements. But they must do more. Missourians need comprehensive sex education and we need to urge our legislators to make this a priority.
Take action NOW and demand that Missouri lawmakers support comprehensive sex education!
Please support comprehensive sex education
Dear [Decision Maker],
