surprise, surprise...

Texas Teens Increased Sex after Abstinence Program.

"Despite taking courses emphasizing abstinence-only themes, teenagers in 29 high schools became increasingly sexually active, mirroring the overall state trends, according to the study conducted by researchers at Texas A&M University."

Why am I not surprised? The most sickening part about this type of program which does not allow for any information about prevention of pregnancy and protection of sexually transmitted disease, is the increased likelihood of desperate teens feeling the need to abort an unwanted pregnancy. I will NEVER understand how the very same people who claim they want to do away with abortions are the ones who willfully try to prevent information about the availability of birth control and practicing safe sex.
