Today on the show, we look at sex education in Utah. A reproductive education bill focusing on the effects of pornography as well as refusal skills passed during the recent Utah legislative session. Some advocates consider it a step in the right direction, but also think it doesn’t go far enough. Turner Bitton, executive director at the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault, talks about a possible route for implementing comprehensive sex education. Innovations Early College High School health teacher Kathy Butler explains her reproductive health curriculum. And the Planned Parenthood Teen Council teaches their peers about healthy relationships.
