Both Of NYC's GOP House Reps Endorse Abstinence Only Sex Education

Although neither of them has any say in city government, both of NYC's GOP members of the U.S. House have come out against the city's recently approved sex ed curriculum.
Reps. Bob Turner (R-Queens, Brooklyn) and Michael Grimm (R-S.I., Brooklyn) joined NYC Parents' Choice Coalition in lobbying for a change. "Parents had no say in this mandate," Turner said. "The Archdiocese of New York, Orthodox Jewish groups, Muslims, many are saying this is a sensitive and delicate subject, and they want more say in what is taught." Turner said the coalition wanted school officials to offer a second, abstinence-based sex-ed curriculum. Parents and politicians will rally for change outside Public School 104 in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, today. School officials announced in August that sex education would be required in all city middle and high schools.
These guys know abstinence education only leads to more pregnancies, more STDs, more AIDS.
