Bill to ban abstinence-only sex education advances after hours of debate
DENVER -- A measure to reform sex education moved forward after more than 10 hours of debate and testimony in front of a House committee on Wednesday night. The House Health and Insurance committee approved house bill HB19-1032 on a 7-4 vote just before midnight. Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education would require schools that teach sex education to teach it comprehensively, meaning more options for students other than abstinence, or opt out of teaching it all together.
