Discriminatory language is being removed from Alabama's sex education law.

The section that says students should be taught that homosexuality is socially unacceptable and illegal has been around since 1992.

Gov. Kay Ivey signed the bill sponsored by Rep. Laura Hall that removed the language.

State sex education laws will keep an emphasis on abstinence.
