Crisis Pregnancy Centers Reportedly Teaching Abstinence-Only Sex Ed in Public Schools

“In their lessons, some of these centers are trying to deter young people from having sex by having them chew a piece of gum or suck on a Lifesaver, and comparing the used candy to their bodies after having sex. … Some crisis pregnancy center presenters have told students that masturbation could affect future marriage, that IUDs can cause spontaneous abortions, and that abortions can cause cancer, infertility, or mental health problems. On top of that, they reportedly usually discourage the use of condoms and contraception.”
