Now why would they give children bad information about the efficacy of condoms?
The problem here is that by telling kids condoms won't allow anything to pass through, they're leading them to believe they'll prevent STDs. That's a lie.
The CDC website state: "However, condom use cannot provide absolute protection against any STD. The most reliable ways to avoid transmission of STDs are to abstain from sexual activity, or to be in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner. " But you don't see that information being taught.
Why do they tell them condoms provide absolute protection?
Why don't they tell them the failure rates?
In the rationale FLASH straight up says they intentionally frame birth control positively. That means kids don't receive full information--so much for "comprehensive" sex ed.
In a completely unrelated fact, Planned Parenthood provided 4.96 million STI testing and treatment services in 2019. That's 50% of their Affiliate Medical Services.
