    Two members of a Centers for Disease Control team that evaluated studies of sex education programs have raised alarms, reporting that the data actually conflicts with the agency's stated conclusion that comprehensive programs such as those emphasizing "safe sex" over abstinence are working. ...


    .........But according to Ericksen, a research analyst with the Institute for Research and Evaluation in Salt Lake City, the statistics inside the study showed no difference between abstinence education and so-called "comprehensive sex education" on key factors including teen condom use, sexual activity, pregnancy and STDs.

    According to the South-Dakota-based Abstinence Clearinghouse, the statistics actually revealed that abstinence programs produced a significant reduction in teen sexual activity, as documented by 10 studies from six authors.

    The CDC is simply a political pawn of the Socialists.

    Whether or not we teach abstinence in not dependent on a reduction in sexual diseases or if there is a reduction in pregnancies. It is a matter of teaching what the Scripture requires for holy living. It's a matter of obedience.

    True, but we shouldn't be relying on anyone but ourselves to teach children what constitutes holy living.
