    When the little folk practice abstinence then the more there are for the wealthy to molest. The latest Chief Justice can vouch for that.

    "Sexual refusal skills"??? Say what now? Sounds to me like, "Teach women how to make men not rape them." What, does he think it's consensual unless the woman breaks his arm???

    The cheapest way to promote abstinence is to take teenagers in the shower room of the senate. After looking at the naked senators, abstinence would be a home run

    Look to Texas and its record high REPEAT teen pregnancy rate to see how successful abstinence only education is.

    Could it possibly be that by banning abortion and teaching abstinence only, those currently in power actually want poor people to continue to have too many children, thereby keeping them poor? Ever notice that well-to-do people usually have fewer children?

    Melania surely doesnt have sex with Donald at least since he became president. It therefore means Donald trump is officially a Wanker. How sad. A president who is a wanker.

    "don't bite the hand that feeds you" ? What are you talking about Jon Batiste? You heard "hand" and thought that was good interaction? I'm really confused about how vapid and basic the reactions are, has anyone called him out for minstrel vibes, I thought he was a musical genius or something how did the late show no only ruin Steven Colbert but also New Orleans Jazz savvyness

    "You should wait because pregnancy and STD's, but if you insist, use condoms and pills" always seemed like a good approach to me, kind of like "please don't ride a motorcycle, because severe injuries and death, but if you insist, wear helmet and not in the rain".

    Abstinence only= sexual ignorance, Teen pregnancy increase, Teen STD increase, body shaming, slut shaming. Trump trying to get the right wing Christian fundamentalists vote at the expense of our teen/young adults futures...sickening.

    Why not show them how to protect themselves and teach them about the emotional aspect of sex.

    How does abstinence cost so much? This is a covert way of funding religious schools. Fund "abstinence only" in Christian Charter schools, funding the for-profit charters without having to do so with "education" funds.

    Abstinence education does work if it's the cultural norm, and inculcated by family upbringing. In the U.S. premarital sex is not considered abnormal. In other countries it is. Remaining a virgin until marriage is normal, expected in many way to avoid diseases, pregnancy.

    There is a great deal of evidence that young people who’ve had “abstinence only education” have more teen pregnancies and more sexually-transmitted diseases. No doubt that’s exactly what people like Betsy De Vos and Mike Pence want to happen.

    I don't care about the jackass Trump's sexual depravity. It is up to parents to guide the moral (yes, I am not afraid to use the "M" word!) values and decision making of their children and grandchildren. No school sex ed. program should undermine or contradict a parent's wish to have their child guided by a principle of engaging in sex only in a long-term, safe, trusting, loving relationship - preferably marriage.
    Abstinence is not necessarily a religious-based precept; it is a common-sense approach to a healthier, safer, more rewarding way of conducting one's life and to finding more meaningful relationships and experiences.
    They are our children, and it is our responsibility to help them negotiate the pitfalls of sexual urges and pressures safely. I know that there are children who do not have that influence and guidance at home, and that they are at risk for pregnancy, disease and abuse. Warning them about the need for contraception and safe practices is appropriate.
    We should not, however, give up on helping them develop a sense of self worth which arms them with the confidence to say no and working to dispel the notion that it is bad to remain a virgin until they are in a genuinely nurturing relationship. Young people need adults to help them resist pressures to engage in sex, not just be co-conspirators.

    It's discouraging that teaching abstinence isn't enough, that we have to hand out birth control because kids are just going to do it anyway. And many of them take that as permission. There is a valuing that comes out of entertaining notions to a point each person seeks, but not going so far that anyone is sorry for it the next day. How often does that happen? Oh well, besides, it's only humane to provide options for kids that get into trouble and have nowhere to turn.

    teenagers having sex? no way, that can't be correct. who would ever believe that TEENAGERS might be having sex?

    U.S Dept. of Health and Information Services published a study in 2011:
    "The United States ranks first among developed nations in rates of both teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. In an effort to reduce these rates, the U.S. government has funded abstinence-only sex education programs for more than a decade. . . "
    "These data show clearly that abstinence-only education as a state policy is ineffective in preventing teenage pregnancy and may actually be contributing to the high teenage pregnancy rates in the U.S."
    So why are these stupid politicians not looking at the studies done (paid for by taxes) by earlier government agencies?

    A message that cuts against the highly destructive Donald Trump is
    necessary and urgent. It is however a message that must be built
    organically, communally and democratically. Being informed about our own
    demise from a rat who ensured it does little to help any of the working
    class that Donald Trump and George Orwell claim to represent.
