Johnson County Commission accepts abstinence part of sex education grant

After more than an hour of emotional public comment Thursday, the Johnson County Commission accepted a grant for abstinence-focused sex education but rejected funds for instruction on contraceptives. The rejected part of the program, which would have included information about contraceptives for at-risk teenagers, had been allocated about $45,000 of the $500,000 three-year federal grant.
