Reaction to Bristol Palin’s Pregnancy by Carol Marin

Here is a great article by Carol Marin of the Chicago Sun Times:

Something else that I think needs to be mentioned here is that this is a perfect example of the complete ineffectiveness of abstinence-only sex education.  A report done in April 2007 by Mathematica Policy Research proves that those who received federally funded abstinence-only sex education did not delay sexual activity or limit their number of sexual partners.  Read more here from the Chicago Foundation for Women.

While it’s a shame that so much attention is being given to this pregnancy (Did McCain know?  What dose this mean for the GOP?  Is Sarah Palin’s baby really hers?  What does Obama have to say?), I think that it gives the perfect platform to try and push for a more comprehensive, medically accurate sex health education plan for all young adults.
