School is almost a month away in Canada, and when it begins, the new Ontario sex-ed curriculum will be rolled out to students as early as Grade One.

She says much of the program's "facts" are false and unscientific, while important issues about sexuality are left out.
For example, students aren't told that you can still contract (diseases) while using a condom, that the new HPV vaccine only prevents 30% of cervical cancers, and that HPV is still the main cause of cervical, anal and oropharyngeal cancers.
As well, the curriculum insists that if you contract HIV/AIDS, you can live a "near to normal" lifespan and that symptoms can be controlled with drugs.
Dr. Nyhus says this isn't exactly true: Having HIV/AIDS forces patients to live "a regimented" life.
While designed to reduced the "stigma" surrounding the disease, Dr. Nyhus argues that this trendy politically correct tone about AIDS is the reason condom use is down and infection is up.
Dr. Nyhus says that young people aren't informed that early sexual activity is correlated with suicide and other negative outcomes.
Overall, Ontario's new sex-ed curriculum is more about politics than science.
Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum sexualizes young children, undermines parental authority and imposes the government's morality (or lack thereof) on every Ontario family.

Far better for the children if they introduced something like Erin's Law so little children can identify when they are being sexually abused and what to do with that. One in 5 girls will be sexually abused before they turn 18. That is a far greater issue than ensuring little children think sex is good no matter how you do it.
