Report shows value of sex education

Posted11/22/2012 5:00 AM

Just a note about the effects of teaching sexual education. Reuters has reported that teens who are taught comprehensive sex ed in school put off sexual activity longer and use birth control more than students in abstinence only programs. Students who are taught abstinence only have earlier and frequent pregnancies. This causes many young women to drop out of school and become a welfare statistic. Education and knowledge is never trigger for irresponsible behavior; however, ignorance of the facts and fear often lead to disaster.
