We affirm the religious foundations for supporting sexuality education throughout the lifespan -- education that respects the whole person, honors the truth and diverse values, and promotes the highest ethical values in human relationships. We support comprehensive sexuality education programs that are age-appropriate, accurate and truthful. Programs that teach abstinence exclusively and withhold information about pregnancy, contraception and disease prevention fail our young people.
