Abstinence Education Works

But of course, in Wisconsin, we don't bother with 'abstinence education.'

...I ran the latest abortion numbers from All the states which reported to the CDC in 2005. I compared the teen abortion rates of the (17) states which reject abstinence only education funds with those ( 31) which accept them, using the 2002 census estimation. I discovered that the 2005 abortion rates for teens were 46% higher in states which reject funding for abstinence only when compared to those which accept them.

AZ, CA, CO, CT, IA, MA, ME, MN, MT, NJ, NM, NY, OH, RI, VA, WI and WY (fund rejecting states) need to stop playing politics.

Nice chart on the linked page, too!

Since abortions are a revenue source for Planned Parenthood, it's possible that Doyle is trading dead babies for campaign donations, no?

How well did abstinence education work for the Palin family?

Actually, pretty well. Bristol suffered the consequences and her family stood by her. That's how it's supposed to work.

So you are saying she should have aborted the child?

But how did the up-close-and-personal abstinence education work for Bristol? Eskimo Barbie preaches something which apparently was a complete and total failure in her own home. Comprende?

Anony, maybe in the solar system YOU live in, everyone does exactly as they are told to do.

We don't deny Original Sin, as you would like. So we all accept and live with the consequences of our decisions.
