RealOptions Pregnancy Medical Clinic Offers New Abstinence Education For Teens In Santa Clara County
RealOptions develops a new student outreach program,"The Sexy Truth....Making Healthy Choices." It highlights the importance of building satisfying and mature relationships free from sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancy, and heartache.
"RealOptions provides an outstanding presentation and overview of sexually transmitted diseases and their prevention. Information is also presented on the emotional consequences of becoming sexually active. Speakers and activities are engaging and able to make very effective connections with high school students. The program has been of great value to the students at Branham High School," said Ron Smare, Health Teacher for Branham High School.
One student who heard a RealOptions presentation at her school explained, “So many people will warn you about the dangers of drugs or the evils of alcohol and the repercussions of smoking. Yet, warnings about one of the most destructive activities, sex outside of marriage, had not been told to us until RealOptions came to our school to speak. Thanks for caring about us and our future!” With 9.1 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) occurring among those aged 15-24 each year in the U.S., this is a program that will help protect and guide our county’s youth.
