Listen here. Below is the overview:

Federal and state funding programs provide local groups with millions of dollars for “abstinence-only-until-marriage” education programs that are hailed by some as the best way to keep teenagers from having sex and to stop teen pregnancy. But increasingly, state administrators are balking at accepting these dollars, concerned that this is a one-sided approach to sexuality education that fails to give teens medically appropriate information about birth control, prevention of STDs and the option of abortion. Tune in to this edition of Justice Talking as we take an in-depth look at the legality, morality and effectiveness of abstinence-only education.
