Twenty Years of "Sex Ed"

Yah--it's been at least 20 years.

'All about sex' for the little darlings in publick screwels. And they learned something:

At least one in four teenage American girls has a sexually transmitted disease, suggests a first-of-its-kind federal study

Makes sense. Sex ed usually begins in 6th grade, when the chilluns are 12 or so--thus, by age 17, they've had a few years to think about it.

Since GWB, however, there have been a few "abstinence-only" programs. So, of course, those programs come under attack from the 'free sex' crowd:

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said the study shows that "the national policy of promoting abstinence-only programs is a $1.5 billion failure, and teenage girls are paying the real price."

Not mentioned by Ms. Richards is the rather large income Planned Barrenhood derives from its 'free-sex' "Sex-Ed" programs, the dispensation of The Pill, and the abortion-revenues....for good reason, no?

Or, as CWN puts it:

OK, let's unpack that statement. Planned Parenthood and its allies have drawn tens of billions from the federal treasury, and told millions of American youngsters to use condoms and have fun. Despite their best efforts, a few federal dollars have trickled through to programs that suggest abstinence from sexual activity. And so, Cecile Richards tells us, the blame should fall on those few programs that promote abstinence from sex, because....

And, by the way, "...Barrenhood" is not a misnomer. Chlamydia has exactly that result.
