I think that the correlation, if it even exists, is not strong enough to be something on which public policy decisions are based.

From the link in my post:

If abstinence education results in teenagers being abstinent, teenage pregnancy and birth rates should be lower in those states that emphasize abstinence more.

The expectation is that higher levels of abstinence education will be correlated with higher levels of abstinence behavior and thus lower levels of teen pregnancy.

Based on a national analysis of all available state data, our results clearly show that abstinence-only education does not reduce and likely increases teen pregnancy rates.

Nice save, btw, removing the expletive, which I did report before it disappeared.
Nice to see your so concerned about a petty "expletive" yet it's no big deal to legislate morality on innocent kids...

Your probably the one that also says "Home School" is "DANGEROUS"???

So, you don't trust any government entities? I bet you'd trust a Catholic and/or conservative blog, though, if it supported your position.

Look - it's obvious you were proven wrong, and this stretching is getting ridiculous. Those numbers (and associated studies) have been presented by a number of sources, not just the NIH, and it's also clear to anyone who is paying attention. I've worked in public schools within the last decade, have you?

So? They made a prediction and discovered a correlation. That has nothing to do with the strength of the correlation.

I could predict that I could walk into a shopping mall and find someone wearing a Boston Red Sox hat - do so and have my prediction verified. That does not mean that just because I found a person wearing a Red Sox hat that the mall is a hotbed of Red Sox fans.

I think that the conclusions that were drawn have little support.

For the record, you made a personal attack with that expletive.

Now...I actually have children; according to your posts, you do not. I had no problem with them getting sex ed at school; however, my son received actual education in Washington state. My daughter received 'abstinence only' garbage here in Indiana.

Oh yes, we talked here at home.

And you really might want to tone down the rage in your posts.
