What is a faith-based crisis pregnancy center doing teaching abstinence-only in a public school?  That’s what Susan Rodriguez wondered, when her daughter Sarah told her what she had learned in a five-day "health" course.  Sarah was being taught that condoms don’t work, abortion is baby-killing

suicide if they engage in pre-marital sex. So Susan took action and rallied
a community to stand up for their children.
