ABSTRACT
The article discusses sex education as taught in public schools in the U.S. It states that many educators when asked by a student regarding the origin of life they take a very scientific approach. They forget to attribute the creation of the living soul to God which is essentially part of being a human being. Life should be explained in terms not limited to physiology and biology because a human being is more than just his physical body.
