Science Not Superstition |The Anti-Choice Agenda to Deny Information and Reproductive-Health Care
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a new report out on teen pregnancy, and called out how ineffective “abstinence-only” programs really are:
“Only four out of 10 [teenagers] said they had been given information both on how to say no to sex and about birth control. And 83 percent of the boys and girls who had sex said they had not received any sex education before their first time.”
Woah. That’s just scary. No wonder the U.S. has the highest teen pregnancy rate of any developed nation.
This is what the anti-choice movement is all about: keeping people from getting the facts and from making the health-care decisions that are right for them. That means a lot of teens aren’t learning what they need to know to stay healthy.
