An increasing percentage of public school sexual education instructors are teaching students to “just say no to sex” as the only way to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, a new study says.Abstinence-only sex education now...
dajha bishop's insight:
this study shows what abstinence classes has done for teens and how good the use of these classes benefit everyone in return not only teenagers.
...take the states with the highest and lowest teen pregnancy rates. Mississippi does not require sex education in schools, but when it is taught, abstinence-only education is the state standard. New Mexico, which has the second highest teen birth rate, does not require sex ed and has no requirements on what should be included when it is taught.
“"If you want to fail in life, if you want to end up being on Medicaid -- CHIPS and Medicaid and food stamps the rest of your life -- if you never want to have a career, then all you've got to do is drop high school and have a baby," [MS Governor Phil] Bryant said. "And I can almost assure you that's what's going to happen to you."
… Okay, then. The article describes two symposia held on the two competing views on how teen pregnancy can be prevented: abstinence-only sex ed or a more comprehensive curriculum. More interesting, though, are Governor Bryant’s comments on the subject, which are rather revealing of his true attitude on the issue.
dajha bishop's insight:
most teens that fall off the road of abstinence does not know that getting pregnant at a young age and having a child is harder then it seems even if the government is supplying money and medicare for the child and their mother and/or father.
