Episode description: As a devout Christian, 15-year-old Shelby Knox of Lubbock, TX pledged celibacy until marriage. But because Lubbock has some of the highest teen pregnancy and STD rates in the state, she also spearheaded a campaign for comprehensive sex education in the high schools, opposing the established "abstinence-only" curriculum. When the campaign broadens with a fight for a gay-straight alliance club in the high school, Shelby confronts her parents and her own faith as she begins to understand how deeply personal beliefs can inform political action.
