Q10 - Sex education in schools

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.
