More Examples Of Abstinence-Only Failure

Yes, I am offering anecdotal evidence. If you want to see the many studies supporting how bad Abstinence-Only education is, just use the google.

Via Addicting Info:



A Republican lawmaker who promoted legislation to teach “abstinence-only” sex education in schools announced that his own unmarried high school-aged daughter has gotten pregnant.
Bill Cassidy, a state Senator from Louisiana released a statement to NOLA.com announcing that he was to be a grandfather and expressing his support for his daughter during this “challenging” time:
Cassidy has made a name for himself as somewhat of a “abstinence-only” crusader. Last year, he co-sponsored the Abstinence-Only Reallocation Act, which would award grants and special funding to public and private schools which stuck to teaching only abstinence instead of a more comprehensive lesson plan on sexual behavior.
Now, he is a US Senator... Yea for us!!

Via Huffington Post:

An outbreak of chlamydia at a high school in Texas has forced administrators there to send a warning note home to parents.
District officials confirmed to CBS7 last Friday that the Crane Independent School District has seen 20 cases of the sexually transmitted disease in its high school, adding that letters have also been sent to the district's junior high school as a precaution.
The high school offers a three-day sexual education course once a year that emphasizes abstinence.
