Election Survey - Tasmania 2014 - Q10

Q10 - Sex education in schools

Rates of teenage sexually transmitted infections have skyrocketed during recent years. At the same time, school sex education programs have emphasised condom use as “safe sex”, with little or no emphasis on sexual abstinence before and fidelity within marriage as the only truly safe sex.

Would you support a sex education program promoting abstinence before marriage and faithfulness in marriage?

The Liberals will maintain existing arrangements. We have also announced a $4.4 million plan to invest in the first stage of introducing child health and youth health nurses across all government schools. In high schools, those nurses will assist in providing advice and counselling in relation to mental health, sexual health, relationships, risky behaviours and addictions.
