The Kentucky Senate has voted to require abstinence be included in any sex education course taught in public schools.
Proponents like Bill Sponsor Stephen Meredith stressed Wednesday afternoon it is not an abstinence only measure. “Abstinence and monogamy are just plain old fashion common sense. Period. No hidden agenda,” said Meredith.
Paducah Senator Danny Carrol characterized the legislation as setting a firm baseline for students to follow.
Louisville Senator Denise Harper Angel cast a no vote.
