You Mean "Abstinence Only" Doesn't Work?

Sin running rampant in Ohio.

An Ohio school board is expanding sex education following the revelation that 13 percent of one high school's female students were pregnant last year.

There were 490 female students at Timken High School in 2005, and 65 were pregnant, WEWS-TV in Cleveland reported.

The new Canton school board program promotes abstinence but also will teach students who decide to have sex how to do so responsibly, bringing the city school district's health curriculum in line with national standards.


Tank goff they learned from their mistake, but it's a real shame that it took 65 pregnant teens to make it perfectly clear. Is it so hard to remember what being a teenager is like? They really believed you could tell teens to just not have sex and that would be the end of it? It's never been "ok" to have sex as a teen and yet throughout time, teenagers have been doing the dirty deed nonetheless. It might not make parents happy to think about it, but realism is better than self-delusion. Too bad self-delusion is so easy.
