Teen pregnancy rates have been dropping since the advent of full and complete sex education in classrooms. The rate of sexually transmitted diseases among high school and college age children has also been falling since the advent of full and complete sex education in classrooms.
I disagree with the statement made that abstinence was proven ineffective in fighting teen pregnancy, the lack of being willing to be abstinent in ineffective. It is not the only means of preventing unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
I do agree it’s not the best we can do for our children to teach only this method. Remember this was the only thing taught for a great many years and during this time teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases rose to frightening levels. After the advent of full and complete sex education this trend reversed and today there are fewer and fewer teen pregnancies and a lower level of sexually transmitted diseases.
We can’t let this funding be cut. Not for our children!
