    I actually like it. I think it shows the reality of teenage pregnancy pretty well.
    I've seen a part of that show. It makes me think that we're becoming a nation of dumb sluts.

    You'd be surprised. For a long time the school I went to didn't have a sex ed program. I've heard some very bizarre and hilariously absurd stories.

    Funny, the numbers do not show that. Weird. In fact, the CDC reported doing what you suggest made the numbers go up here in Dixie. Predictably, too.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Abortion videos has only recentley been allowed to be seen by the public on TV. (channels previously refused to air any such programmes or videos)
    The Government would string up anyone who showed it to a bunch of 15 year olds at school

    I remember watching a controversial channel 4 documentary a while back My Foetus, it was the first time abortion has ever been shown on UK TV's. Haha, there were warnings before and after the documentary with a numberline 'phone here if you need any help'

    And this is not a bash Bush thread... it is based-on facts. And the fact is, teen pregnancy sharply went up during his tenure.
    And that makes it his fault PERSONALLY.

    So the ONLY sex ed classes being taught, are those taught by nuns right???? The regular sex ed program was abolished?

    Does anyone have a link to the CDC study itself?
