Tell Santorum LGBT Students Deserve Health Education

At a campaign event in Iowa, Rick Santorum argued that legalizing same-sex marriage would lead schools to include discussions of same-sex sexual activity in health education classes. Although Santorum was appalled at this idea, safe sex education for LGBT teens is vitally important to the well-being of millions of young people. 

Sign this to tell Rick Santorum that students deserve comprehensive health education that includes information about safe sex practices for same-sex relationships.

Throughout his campaign for presidential candidacy, Santorum has been staunchly opposed to same-sex marriage. However, these recent statements show that Santorum also doesn't see the harm in denying LGBT students access to health information that directly affects their lives.

Sign now to tell Santorum that inclusive health education is crucial for young LGBT people. Comprehensive sex education courses don't threaten "faith and family in America"; they help young people stay safe and informed. 
We the undersigned ask you to reconsider the statements you made at Dordt College regarding discussion of same-sex  health education classes. Safe sex education is vitally important to the health and wellbeing of millions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender young people. These young people deserve comprehensive health education that includes discussion of safe sex practices for same-sex relationships. Inclusive health education does not threaten faith and family in America; rather, it helps young people stay safe and informed.
