In this Wednesday, April 18, 2012, file photo, Rep. Jim Gotto seeks recognition during a House Education Committee meeting in Nashville, Tenn. Tennessee recently enacted a pro-abstinence sex education law that is among the strictest in the nation. The most debated section of the bill bars educators from promoting so-called "gateway sexual activity." But supporters seemed too squeamish during floor debate to specify what that meant, so critics soon labeled it the "no holding-hands bill."
