The Commonwealth needs cheap and stoopid labour. Teen sex does the job. Unwed baby mommies tend to have little, if any, education or resources. Their children will have maws wonderful example to model and early sexuality tends to early deaths and multiple offspring.

So, you'll have baby factories that self-terminate. The utter lack of intellect will fill the coffers of the nearest fundie church and the pastors will have young'uns to indoctrinate...or impregnate...

Plus, what entities profit from the materials districts purchase to teach these lies. It's a scam, man.

Parents should be the primary source of any sex education for their children. So parents are free to teach their children about condoms and protection if they so desire.

It worked for the Palin family.

From a 2006 questionnaire:

"3. Will you support funding for abstinence-until-marriage education instead of for explicit sex-education programs, school-based clinics, and the distribution of contraceptives in schools?
SP (Sarah Palin): Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support."

How'd that work out for you, Sarah?

kevin, families aren't always good at this stuff. My parents *never* talked to me about sex; the only reason I found out what a condom is before it mattered was sex ed class. And I'm not the only one.

Could somebody plese tell me what abstinence only sex education consists of?
Is it, "hey kids if you don't have sex you won't get pregnant"?
How much of the school year does that take?
If it's "hy kids this is how babies are made and this here's the G-spot but don't do any of it until you're married?"
"I can understand a course like that, but I don't think that's what it is.
Honestly, do they just scare them for a year? Or try to?

Rick: yours and pretty much everybody else's.

This is a disgrace. Boy, good thing we fetishized the living shit out of "Democrats who are comfortable talking about their faith," huh?

uh, yeah. is he palin's new bff?

wtf?

An absolute disgrace.

"Could somebody plese tell me what abstinence only sex education consists of?"

it varies depending on the state, the school district, etc. most districts contract out sex ed curriculum development; depending on the local politics sometimes the developers are good, reputable organizations (for ex., in Philadelphia i think the Health Federation has the job).

but in many districts that provide abstinence-only education, they contract out to independent speakers (sometimes with a clear evangelical christian message) who may have little to no actual health-related training. often the curriculum isn't just "don't have sex," it's "don't have sex because you are then dirty, unclean, worthless, and will never be able to sustain a relationship as an adult." i have no problem with helping teens to delay sexual activity until they are old enough to make good, healthy choices, but these programs are really terrible. and, of course, they don't work.

probably the best organization tracking this crap is SIECUS. you can find info about the programs at: http://www.siecus.org/. and BTW they have a press release in response to Rendell's caving.
