As a former Student Health Advisory Council member in my school district, I am very concerned about Senate Bill 521. This bill was voted out of the Texas Senate Education Committee on March 13.

Teen pregnancy is a problem in Texas, and this bill will add more barriers to teaching sex education to our children.

The teaching of medically accurate sex education must be a priority for our state. To burden our districts and parents in these unnecessary culture wars is a waste of time and draws attention away from the real job of legislative governing.
