This bill seeks to promote marriage-based sex education. It would put up $110 million under the control of the Department of Health and Human Services to fund both public schools and private organizations teaching young people about relationships and sex.
There's a catch. To qualify for these funds, organizations must teach in a specific way. Curriculums must be age-appropriate, evidence-based and medically accurate. It also has to be focused around marriage, highlighting that the safest approach is teaching kids how to "resist the pervasive, sex-saturated" culture.
The curriculum can address contraception, but only if it is portrayed as being less important than waiting for sex and if its effectiveness is not overstated.
