ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications of a Tennessee law banning "gateway sexual activity" and requiring sexual education classes to focus on abstinence programs. The law includes a provision that would fine teachers for condoning activities that could result in sex. The article also reports that while Democrats oppose the law, Republicans view it as an improvement on the existing curriculum.
