I'm sure that the liberals will find a way to blame this on abstinence-only education.

If only these children had been taught the joys of condom use. /s

Yesterday there was an article claiming the exact opposite of this one.

Which is it.

On Breibart, this was a companion piece to an article stating just the opposite “Sex down condom use up” using the same study, citing a longer time span.

What is funny, liberals love to tout studies which show that abstinence education does little, but they never have studies which show their pornographic sex education courses work. Fact is, most teenagers are gonna do what teenagers do no matter what information you give them. It would still be far better to try to instill some decent values. Of course liberals and their sexual predator friends wants lots of free and loose sex by young children.

Approximately 48 percent of 14,041 high school students said they have had sex...

With 26% of high school students contracting STDs and 48% sexually active, it doesn't take a lot of math to figure that 54% of those who are sexually active contract an STD (assuming the surveys are accurate). If you toss out those who only have one partner, where it's a first time for both, you're left with over 70% of teens with more than one sexual partner contracting an STD. Somehow, I don't find those odds good enough that I'd consider "you're going to do it with lots of people, and there's nothing I can say to change that, so just use condoms" a good answer.

I thought they sent all the available condoms to Burma.
