The misinformation about contraception is a major problem with the abstinence only program. I was speaking to a local woman who does most of the local sex education in the public schools. She started talking about how since condoms are not 100% effective at preventing pregnancy and STDS, you might as well be playing Russian Roulette. I pointed out that using nothing was the same as using a fully loaded gun instead of only 1 bullet for the game.
Abstinence only sex education does not work. Teaching restraint, self respect, and protection are far more effective.
Blessings to you and yours.

Nasty case scenario: withhold all information about birth control and safe sex. Kids experiment, girl gets pregnant. Along come the anti-choice insisting the girl carry to term. Gotta keep the money flowing to the AC movement.

Hey, they make great money on procuring and adopting those babies out...can't lose their money making abstinence only failures.
