Section 510 of the Social Security Act

1) The purpose of an allotment under subsection (a) to a State is to enable the state to provide abstinence education, and at the option of the State, where appropriate, mentoring, counseling, and adult supervision to promote abstinence from sexual activity, with a focus on those groups which are most likely to bear children out-of-wedlock.

2) For purposes of this section, the term "abstinence education" means an educational or motivational program which:

a. Has as its exclusive purpose, teaching the social, psychological, and health gains to be realized by abstaining from sexual activity;

b. Teaches abstinence from sexual activity outside marriage as the expected standard for all

 school age children;

c.  Teaches that abstinence from sexual activity is the only certain way to avoid out-of-wedlock pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and other associated health problems;

d.  Teaches that a mutually faithful monogamous relationship in the context of marriage is the expected standard of human sexual activity;

e.  Teaches that sexual activity outside of the context of marriage is likely to have harmful

 psychological and physical effects;

f.  Teaches that bearing children out-of-wedlock is likely to have harmful consequences for     

the child, the child's parents, and society;

g.  Teaches young people how to reject sexual advances and how alcohol and drug use   increases vulnerability to sexual advances; and

h. Teaches the importance of attaining self-sufficiency before engaging in sexual activity.

With regard to A-H, the FOA states that "States expending funds for abstinence education programs may determine the relative emphasis to place on each of the A-H components of Section 510{b){2).

States may also use funds for mentoring, counseling, or adult supervision programs to promote abstinence, as allowed under section 510{b){l). Regardless of program type, no funds can be used in ways that contradict the A-H provisions." In other words, States do not have to place equal emphasis on all of A-H, nor do they have to incorporate all of the components in their curriculum.


Section 317P(c)(2) of the Public Health Service Act

Mass produced educational materials that are specifically designed to address sexually transmitted diseases/infections (STDs/STis) are required by Section 317P(c)(2) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. § 247b-17(c)(2)) to contain medically accurate information regarding the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of condoms in preventing the STDs/STis the materials are designed to address. In general, information on contraceptives, if included, must be medically accurate and should include information on the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of the type of contraception discussed in the curriculum.
