- Many states with abortion restrictions emphasize abstinence as the main or only way to avoid getting pregnant.
- “Very few young people in the U.S. get outstanding sex education,” said Leslie Kantor, a professor and sex education expert.
- Some studies have found abstinence-only education has little impact on teen pregnancy rates.
Close to half of the roughly two dozen states where abortion is or will soon be outlawed or heavily restricted do not require sex education.
Most of those states require any schools that do choose to teach sex education to emphasize abstinence as the main or only way to avoid getting pregnant. Almost none require teaching about contraception.
