dc.description.abstractStudies conducted by The Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States have shown how sex education programs impact our young populations. This research observes the issues currently with abstinence-only-until-marriage programs and how they affect young Americans. The findings show that these types of programs especially hurt women and members of the LGBTQIA+ community by spreading false information. Uneducated young Americans are more likely to have worse public health outcomes later in life due to the falsehoods they learned as children. One solution presented is to remove federal funding from abstinence-only-until-marriage education and instead invest it in evidence-based research that can be used to create comprehensive sex education-based curriculum and improve overall health outcomes.en_US
