    I'd say this is more evidence of the dangers and ignorance of abstinence only education. The only correlation to Bush that I can see is that he did advocate and push for funding of abstinence only education.

    Were his policies even in force?

    One pro-abstinence-only person in the article was complaining that the Bush policy was barely present at all.

    Teenage pregnancies and syphilis have risen sharply among a generation of American school girls who were urged to avoid sex before marriage under George Bush's evangelically-driven education policy, according to a new report by the US's major public health body.
    It's all well and good to tell teenagers to ideally wait until marriage but it will never be as safe or effective as information and education.
    I am a strong supporter of sex education being taught from a young age and more frequently focusing on the consequences and alternatives

    I'm not saying that they were in force or even that he's responsible, I'm only saying that his urging that more funding be put into abstinence only education is the only correlation I could see to Bush.

The decline of the traditonal American family where 1 parent is home after school to make sure the kids aren't sucking each other off in the basement. Bush had nothing to do with these things, and if he had ever stepped in, the outcry of censorship, morality imposing & other feigned outrages would be heard from east to west.
    Agreed this could play a part. But it has been happening for a long time. BUT the trend was going down, and now it's gone up sharply.

    It's not our president. It's our culture. Off on a tanget here. I'm so sick of people saying Americans are uptight about sex. Our culture is nothing BUT sex. I was reading a gardening site last night, and a pair of t*ts were staring me in the face.
    Whay are you so certain it was not Bush's policies of absitnence??? How can you be that positive?

    And I have to disagree with you, Chuck. Americans are more uptight, and I believe it's one of the reason kids look for nudity and suck each other off in basements.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    NO. Show them disgusting pictures of STDs on penises and vaginas, and terrify them into abstinence. Or, if not abstinence, at least wearing a condom. That totally works.

    I think it is probably because US is more religious than Canada or many other western nations which may explain why they are more uptight

    What do you expect? The Bush doctrine was all about abstinence as the only acceptable method of preventing sexually transmitted disease and pregnancy.

    No wonder there was an increase in teen pregnancy and disease.

    If you can't show that Bush's policies caused more teens to become pregnant, then you have nothing.

    That might work on the girls, but we'll forget all about that when the blood starts flowing down hill.

    For the guys, show them a pay stub with a child support garnishment.
