    GW student asks for injunction against principal over speaker

    "GW" would be George Washington High School in Charleston West Virginia.

    GW student asks for injunction against principal over speaker

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A student at George Washington High School asked for an injunction in Kanawha Circuit Court against the school's principal Monday, after she alleges he threatened to call the college where she's been accepted and tell them she has "bad character" for speaking up against an abstinence-only assembly held at the school last week.

    Katelyn Campbell, the school's student body vice president, refused to attend an assembly where Christian speaker Pam Stenzel told GW students "condoms aren't safe" and warned that any type of sexual contact would lead to sexually transmitted diseases and cause women to be infertile, according to an audio recording of her presentation.

    West Virginia has the ninth-highest teenage pregnancy rate in the country but some folks still think "abstinence-only" sex ed is the way to control teen sex.

    Yet another instance of someone "lying for Jesus" in an effort to force their religious beliefs into public law.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    I read 10th highest (#40) but those stats also run through 19. I would really like to see some more broken down numbers like under 18 v. 18-19 for that state in particular but I have never seen raw totals. I say this because the state is rural, poor, and not well populated so I would expect them to have more 18-19 year old mothers per capita. Out of HS and I could care less.
