Ibis recommends documentary film Abstinence Comes to Albuquerque

December 2007

December 20, 2007 – Ibis recommends Abstinence Comes to Albuquerque, a documentary film about the events that unfolded when abstinence-only education was introduced in New Mexico’s public schools. Through interviews with national experts, state public health officials, parents, and others, the film highlights the differences between abstinence-only and comprehensive sex education. The 2005 film was recently revised to include discussion of the congressionally mandated Mathematica study on abstinence education programs and an update on what has happened in New Mexico. The film runs 45 minutes and is available for free, along with a discussion guide, at www.der.org/films/abstinence-comes-to-albuquerque.html.
