Bad News for the "Just Give Them Some Condoms" Crowd

Abstinence based sex education works:

"'I think we've written off abstinence-only education without looking closely at the nature of the evidence,' said John B. Jemmott III, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, who led the federally funded study. 'Our study shows this could be one approach that could be used.' "

But wait, there's more:

"The Obama administration eliminated more than $150 million in federal funding targeted at abstinence programs, which are relatively new and have little rigorous evidence supporting their effectiveness. Instead it is launching a new $114 million pregnancy prevention initiative that will fund only programs that have been shown scientifically to work. The administration Monday proposed expanding that program to $183 million next year."

Imagine that!

What do you suppose we will hear from Obamaland in light of the new evidence? Revoke Professor Jemmot's federal funding, and give it to Michael Mann, instead?

Nothing's out of the question with the set of.......people who currently hold power in Washington.


  1. But abstinence produces no revenue for Planned Parenthood. They thrive on providing abortions.

  2. Now we hear of oral and throat cancers caused by HPV virus contracted through sexual contact. Abstinence prior to marriage certainly avoids MANY problems.
