Abstinence-Only Leads to Higher Rate of Pregnancy


So I’m going to keep this one short and sweet because it doesn’t need any fluff. In the grand scheme of ‘duh’, it’s been found that the number of teenage mothers across the country has actually decreased – get this – due to the availability of birth control. Amazing!

Teenagers aren’t having any less sex, and the abortion rate is going down. Could this be? Is it really true? They can get birth control and they know how to use it properly. Wow!

This news comes on the heels of news that teen pregnancy rates actually rose in states that taught abstinence-only sex ed. I wonder what could make that happen? Hmm… telling someone something if off-limits only makes them want to do it more? Not having any real idea about what their bodies are capable of doing makes them ignorant to all the intracacies that cause pregnancy?

Common sense is wasted on so many people.
