Abstract

Abstinence-only sexual education has been taught throughout schools privately throughout the years but then gained traction and support in the 1960s [7]. It wasn’t until the 1980’s though that Americans started to oppose it and start actively fighting against the practice [7]. Many studies have been done through both sides of the debate to try and prove their point with only one side wielding unbiased and correct data to prove their point. This essay is in effect of the Pro-Comprehensive side of the debate and will explain many definitions, studies, and data from both sides of the debate but with a primary focus on the Pro-Comprehensive side of the debate. The methodology to find the information supporting the topic supported was found through a survey done using Google Form (turned out not to work with my thesis), searching for peer-reviewed articles on Google Scholar, and a Google search looking for reliable websites with pertinent information.
