Abstinence education offered as freedom of choice.
From American Family Association Journal, Nov/Dec 1999 page 8;  reprint.

"Right now, you're only meeting the needs of students who are sexually active.   But 51% (2.) of our students choose to be abstinent.   These kids need support, too.   What are you doing to address their needs?"
Under the guise of a pluralistic society, liberals for years have argued that freedom of choice necessitates everything from a right to abortion to smutty television.   Now a group of moms in Osseo, Minnesota, have used that argument to get their public school system to offer an abstinence-based sex education curriculum to students.
According to an article in World magazine parents grew concerned about the singular "safer-sex" nature of the school system's sex-ed message.   Some moms felt that Osseo, a large suburb of Minneapolis, needed a message of abstinence instead.
At first, attempts to change the normal "use condom" sex-ed approach into an abstinence-based curriculum ran into problems.   The foes of traditional views on human sexuality had supporters with deep pockets, namely Planned Parenthood and its ilk.
So these moms on a mission decided to create an alternative lesson plan based on abstinence, rather than trying to replace the "safer sex" message.   Now it was the traditionalists arguing for freedom of choice, and their message of a more diverse offering for students gained favor in the eves of the school district.   The message from these involved parents was simple: "Right now, you're only meeting the needs of students who are sexually active.   But 51% of our students choose to be abstinent.   These kids need support, too.   What are you doing to address their needs?"
The school system liked the idea, and agreed to let parents select either sex-ed track for their own children starting this fall.   Already almost half of Osseo's junior high and a third of its senior high students have signed up for the abstinence curriculum.
