[The Center for Christian Virtue is lobbying against Erin’s Law, which calls for educating children about sexual abuse.]
Moreover, the Center for Christian Virtue wants Erin’s Law education to be abstinence-only, even though it’s not about sex, it’s about sexual abuse. The conservative Christians say that state law requires all sex education in the state to teach that abstinence is the best way to prevent sexual transmitted infections and prevent pregnancy.
“If we’re going to do that in the state of Ohio, it’s got to be abstinence-related,” said David Mahan of the Center for Christian Virtue. “It’s not opinion. It’s law.”
