Objective. An earlier article published in this journal reports that morality politics and political economy variables jointly affect the offering of both sexual and contraceptive health services at school-based health centers (SBHC). Data are reanalyzed cognizant of structural linkages: general health sexual health contraceptive services.
Methods. To correct for spurious correlations in the earlier article, three ordinary least squares regressions with robust standard errors are estimated.
Results. General health services fit a political economy model. Sexual health services are associated with morality politics. The offering of contraceptive services is influenced by the number of sexual health services offered and urbanism, not directly by moral traditionalism and political economy variables.
Conclusions. Opponents and advocates of school health services are likely to engage in political strategies that address characteristics of the arenas in which different types of services are offered.
