    The idea that teaching your children to abstain from sex till they are married would somehow make them more likely to have sex before marriage is loony. The teens not having premarital sex are the ones who were taught to wait till they are married. They are also the ones with no STDs.

    Because those studies simply do not exist. Or if they do, they're dishonest, unscientific "studies" funded by groups like the Discovery Institute.

    Because there haven't been any such successes. Abstinence education programs *cause* AIDS to spread by misleading people about birth control.

    It doesn't make them more likely to have sex before marriage. It makes them more likely to have unprotected sex before marriage.

    See above re: unprotected sex.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    That is the thing. The people who argue for abstinance education, and those who claim there is a sensible concept called abstinence until marriage, virtually all had sex before marriage. They are hypocrites.

    Well, I'm not 37, and neither, I don't think, is Roe.
    So I don't have a clue what he was referring to.

    1973 (I think), so you're still about 30 years off.
