    Show proof abstinence only education stops those things?

    Improper use of birth control causes those things, and abstinence only education doesn't teach students how to use birth control, or give them a proper education about sex. Keeping students in the dark isn't the way to go.

    My county, in particular, has the most 55+ only communities in the state, too. It isn't the grey haired elders that are overcrowding the elementary school classrooms with children here, obviously.
    Do you have anything to back up your claim that allowing first-cousin marriages in your area has led to an explosion of teen pregnancy?

    Moreover, I don't really think "teen pregnancy" is in and of itself the problem, I think it's "unmarried teen pregnancy" that's really the issue. A 19 year old married couple that decides to have a kid is far less of a "problem" for society than a 21 year old girl who gets knocked up by a random guy.

    Re: Should we move away from abstinence only sex education?

    My area never has had an abolition of first cousin marriage, nor has it ever had anything but abstinence-only sex ed. But my area beats Miami-Dade County in percentage of teen pregnancies. It's illogical to think this mid-Florida area would beat MIAMI unless the sex ed. and first cousin marriages were to blame.

    You'd have to make this area not deeply ruby-red politically and culturally in order to disprove my reasoning for high teen pregnancy here.

    That's really not how logic works. You could also say that your area probably listens to more country music per capita than Miami. That doesn't mean that country music causes teen pregnancy.

    Ah ha. You haven't lived in Miami, either. A sexually repressed place it ain't.

    Perhaps if you see it for yourself, you'd understand.

    It makes no sense for a place full of elderly like we have here to have such a high teen birthrate unless sex ed and the marriage law enables it.

    Yes because some of you may of noticed sex is enjoyable.The answer to obesity is not to stop people eating altogether even though that would work.We could get rid of all deaths by guns if everyone agreed to never use a gun.If jerry didnt have any legs tom could get him.Its just not realistic

    Yes we should educate our children on all birth control while not ignoring the most obvious, abstinence. LGBT issues should be left out as it's not the school systems right or responsibility to supersede the values of the parents and what they wish to impart on their children. The school should provide condoms only with the permission and knowledge of the parents.

    It's not superseding the values of the parents, it's giving LGBT students a proper sex education. And I do think it should be known that the school gives out condoms, but it shouldn't be something a student would have to have written consent to receive the condoms.
