Abby McElroy just graduated from Strath Haven High School in Wallingford, PA last month. While at Strath Haven, she led the fight against a crisis pregnancy center which had been allowed to visit 10th grade classrooms to deliver medically inaccurate information claiming to be "sex education," including telling students that hand-holding, hugging, and kissing could cause teens to fall into the abyss of STDs and worse. As a result of her activism, such outside groups are now banned from the school district. Abby is currently working with a local coalition to lobby for a bill requiring that comprehensive, medically accurate sex education be taught in all Pennsylvania public schools, and will be attending college this fall.
