    Apparently, they don't go to jail for it often enough.

    If they weren't, would so many teenage girls be getting impregnated?

    Well gosh; you're right! It's well-documented that males can't reproduce until they're in their 20s, and in any case, the point is moot, because they're completely segregated from teenage girls until that time.

    I am a strong believer that education, rather than abstinence, is the best way to prevent teen pregnancy, but even I am surprised by these results.
    I find that humorous. Abstinence is the best way to prevent a pregnancy (you cant have one if you abstain, obviously) but that doesn't mean people will abstain. You made it seem like if someone practices abstinence it wont work, which is hilarious.

    So it is your view that telling teens not to have sex until their married will stop them from having sex right?

    That is what ABSTINENCE ONLY teaching means.

    Now can you honestly say that ABSTINENCE ONLY methods work?

    When I was taught sex education, I was taught ABSTINENCE is the ONLY 100% method to prevent STDs or pregnancy. I was also taught condom usage and that it DOES NOT prevent 100% STDs or pregnancy. Now can you please tell me what is wrong with that education?

    ABSTINENCE ONLY education simply doesn't work.

    Is that what I said?

    The OP didn't say abstinence only education. Read what I quoted. Abstinence is the best way to prevent a pregnancy period. Whether people abstain or not is a different story, but 100% of people who practice abstinence will not get pregnant. Trust me. Thats true.

    Did you even read my post?

    People from the 50s would not even recognize this country today. We explain away everything for everybody, and integrity and principle have become the rarest of commodities.
    Some of these I can understand, but I fail to see how "the normalization of the gay lifestyle" contributes to an increase in teen pregnancy rates.

    Good. People from the 50s lived complacently with Jim Crow laws, overt sexual discrimination, and a good many other institutions that are today recognized as abhorrent. I hope they're spinning in their graves.

    Good points.

    P.S. I missed you, 10.
