    In 8th grade home ec. class, I frequently got into heated debates with our female Christian teacher over her pro family planning and abstinence teachings. This was a year after I survived being raped at a party, for context of my passion on the issue (seriously pro-choice and contraception). This was not a fact I felt comfortable divulging at that point in school (thankfully, I had a public school education). I don't think she would've even considered changing her crappy syllabus if she knew. I frequently stated how pregnancy rates were much higher with natural family planning as opposed to the pill and other forms of contraception. Of course I got the whole "abstinence is the best choice...yada yada" crap. I really hope public schools have improved sex education in this day and age, but I can't hold my breath forever. Politicians like the idiot above deserve to be removed from office for such crap.
