Urgent Action Needed from the North Carolina AIDS Action Network
NC AIDS ACTION NETWORK ALERT
Please take a moment to send a message to your North Carolina legislators to let them know that we need comprehensive sex education in NC to save lives from the spread of HIV/AIDS. We now know that President Bush's "Abstinence Only" programs are failing.
The following is an urgent bulletin from the North Carolina AIDS Action Network.
April 27, 2007
Help prevent HIV with comprehensive sex education in our public schools.
Sometime in the next week the NC House Health Committee will be voting on House Bill 879, which would replace the outdated, ineffective, and incomplete abstinence until marriage sex education in public schools with real, comprehensive sex education.
You can make a real difference by visiting www.ncaan.org and sending an email to the committee members
Opponents of real sex ed are flooding their in-boxes with emails opposing this bill. Don't let them speak for you!
We know that comprehensive sex education makes a real difference and can save lives, but instead many schools are teaching lies and misinformation that put young people at risk.
Please, visit The North Carolina AIDS Action Network homepage right now and click on the alert to send your message.
Together, we can help protect our young people from HIV/AIDS.
