Abstinence Only Documentary

Posted on: June 26, 2009

The other day when I was volunteering at Planned Parenthood, I watched this 2006 documentary titled “Abstinence Comes to Albuquerque.” It’s a great documentary about the abstinence only debate. It is obviously geared towards abolishing abstinence only education (as it should be) and has some great information.

Even though Obama has abolished funding for abstinence only education for 2010, the threat is not gone. Some of that funding can be used for abstinence only education and the abstinence only movement (part of the virginity movement, according to Jessica Valentia, as can be read about here and here) is still going strong. Continue working towards abolished abstinence only education through writing to your elected officials, working with organizations like Planned Parenthood, organizing events in your community, etc.

I don’t understand why you don’t like abstinence education. Do you feel like comprehensive sex ed has done an adequate job? I’m not attacking, so don’t pounce on me. Just wanted to hear your perspective.
