Effective Sex-education

Some minority extremist rightwingers insist that "abstinence only" be taught in schools. Statistics show, however, that this might not be the most effective, efficient system.

Kids are told several dangerous lies during this so-called "education": They are told that condoms do not prevent pregnancy-- and they do; and they are taught that they do not prevent venereal disease-- which they also do.

Kids who are taught "abstinence only" programs can be in danger for their lives if they believe everything that rightwing bigots insist on.
