Teen Pregnancies Highest In States With Abstinence-Only Policies

stfuconservatives:

A new report says that although national teen pregnancy rates are the lowest they’ve ever been (or at least since they started tracking them in 1940), states that have abstinence-only sex “education” have higher rates than states where schools teach you about condoms and stuff.

Can we just declare abstinence-only education a failure and a sham and be done with it?

We can, and have.  This is hardly the first evidence to surface proving that abstinence-only education is a dismal failure. In fact, this issue came up during Rick Perry’s campaign and he was dumbfounded (as usual) when attempting to form a coherent defense of this disastrous policy.

Parents, religion does a shitty job of parenting for you, and withholding information about how to prevent pregnancies is not going to stop your child from having sex, contracting a dangerous disease, or getting pregnant.
