    It seems the study compared a group of religious teens that took the pledge to religious teens that didn't. Religious teens from religious families have been found to have less premarital sex than other teens.

    To the ones using this study to justify Sex ed training in schools...You've been duped.
    Here is a better study. Mississippi teens are the most impregnated in the United States. Nuff said.

    Such a DISHONEST comment. which state has the highest teen abortion rate.

    New Jersey has the highest teenage abortion rate of any state, surpassing even New York, according to a report released by a national organization that studies reproductive issues.

    New Jersey recorded 47 abortions per 1,000 women ages 15 to 19, posting the highest statewide teenage abortion rate of any state for 2000, the latest time period for which state-by-state data were available.
    (I know it's freeper but the original link is now "dead" so if you can refute this, or bolster it, by all means.)
    New Jersey, NJ, surpasses all states in teenage abortion rate

    States ranked by rates of abortion among women age 15-19 (pregnancies per thousand):

    New Jersey (47)
    New York (46)
    Maryland (38)
    Nevada (36)
    California (36)
    Hawaii (34)
    Florida (33)
    Delaware (31)
    Connecticut (30)
    Illinois (27)

    Abstinence is a bullcrap idea, brought on by religious fanatics who use it to control women.
    and yet it has been practiced by countless cultures throughout the history of the mankind.

    I would say that it's only higher because abortion is more accessible in those states. I would expect comparable rates per capita in a more conservative state if restrictions were relaxed.

    Abstinence pledges are a shining monument of the idiocy, and, even more so of the impossibility of Holy Roller Christian Dogma. We are such sinful, dirty creatures who need to be ashamed of ourselves. It's not enough that if you are born homosexual your desires are an abomination. If you are born human your desires are an abomination until you go through a magic ceremony. Oh, and the homosexuals aren't allowed to go through the ceremony, so they'll always be an abomination.
    These poor kids born and raised in Chrisitanity. Taught that they are by their very nature dirty and shameful. Thinking that human nature is a sin. Thinking that dogma is morality. It's no wonder the world is in such a sad, sorry state.

    When has it not been bull crap? Education is a gift... We should continue giving it rather than demonizing the act of teaching kids what a condom does and how to use one successfully.

    No, it's because.. GASP! Conservatives would rather a baby born then a baby killed. PREFER that children not have sex out of wedlock as well but we take what we can get.

    The states with the highest teen pregnancy rates used to be Texas and New Mexico, according to the CDC (the two were basically tied).
    The CDC's latest statistics, just released, show that Mississippi has now surpassed these two states for top ranking (you know, Mississippi, that backward baptist state where it's so hard to obtain an abortion?)
    New Mexico and Texas are now #2 and 3; other top contenders include such bastions of conservatism as Arkansas, Arizona, Oklahoma, Nevada, Tennessee, Kentucky and Georgia.

    And no, it's not just about the mexican immigrants, legal or otherwise.
    If it were, California would be listed too, but it's not, because *gasp!* California is blue, and high teen pregnancy rates are pretty much limited to red states.
