Just Say No To Abstinance Only

Info on the farce which is abstinence only education can be found here:
If teens are told that condoms are unsafe, in all probability they will have sex without condoms. And many teens are just having oral sex instead.
Saying that teens who don’t abstain from Sex "deserve" to have consequences is not so far removed from the "honor killing" which occurs in some parts of the Arab world. (Especially in light of AIDS) What the right fears is not the consequences of pre-marital sex, but rather pre-marital sex with NO consequences. They have a stake in risky sex, because it re-enforces the concept of Abstinence. Putting them in charge of sex education is clearly the wolf guarding the hen house.
