A regular client turned good friend was sexually assaulted and asked me if I would go with her to the police station to make the report. Here is what happened.
Things to note:
1. There may be some triggers around sexual assault, victim blaming, and incompetent police officers.
Sex Ed:[x] [x]
Teen Pregnancy: [x]
Important Things to Note:
Sex-Ed Legislation listed applies to public schools, those of you who went to private schools may have had different experiences.
"Medically Accurate" varies in definition from state to state. Most definitions include a requirement for a health review of curricula or a mandate that information be based on information from "published authorities upon which medical professions rely." [Source]
States that do not mandate sex-ed are still allowed to provide sex-ed in public schools.
Teen pregnancy rates include full-term pregnancies, abortions, and miscarriages.

Angelina Jolie has appealed to the United Nations Security Council to try and stop sexual violence in war zones. The actress, who is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, told members it was “their responsibility” to act. She said: “Rape is a tool of war. It is an act of aggression and a crime against humanity.”
"It is inflicted intentionally to destroy the woman, the family and the community. It ruins lives and fuels conflict.
The United Nations charter is clear. You, the Security Council, have primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.”
After Angelina spoke, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to pass a resolution recognising that rape can exacerbate conflicts and delay peace. (Report by Sarah Johnston).
