Expose Thrive!
Thrive LIES in their fake clinics and in their "Best Choice" public school sex ed curriculum based in shame, judgment, and fear

Media/News Coverage

Parents, students, and community members have been speaking up about the problems with Thrive "Best Choice" in public schools

Below are links to all of the news media stories about the problems with Thrive "Best Choice" in St. Louis & St. Charles, MO area public schools. This story has been covered in local newspapers, television news segments, radio, and even in Teen Vogue, a national publication.

Parents, students, and community members have been speaking out strongly to oppose Thrive "Best Choice" because it is a biased abstinence-only sex ed curriculum that is medically inaccurate and based in shame, judgment, and fear of all sex outside of marriage, due to Thrive's conservative religious morality agenda.

Thrive "Best Choice" is being taught in public schools by unqualified individuals who are not certified teachers and have no background in health, medical science, human sexuality, or intimate relationships.
