If one side is able to argue from an idealistic point of view that guns can magically be uninvented (or criminals can magically be made to become law-abiding citizens) then why is the other side not allowed argue from the realistic point of view that doing things in a certain order (education then marriage then baby) generally makes for a better life for both the mother and child?

http://news.uga.edu/releases/article...nent-behavior/States that prescribe abstinence-only sex education programs in public schools have significantly higher teenage pregnancy and birth rates than states with more comprehensive sex education programs, researchers from the University of Georgia have determined.
The researchers looked at teen pregnancy and birth data from 48 U.S. states to evaluate the effectiveness of those states' approaches to sex education, as prescribed by local laws and policies.
"Our analysis adds to the overwhelming evidence indicating that abstinence-only education does not reduce teen pregnancy rates," said Kathrin Stanger-Hall, assistant professor of plant biology and biological sciences in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences.
Virtually every study has come to the same conclusion.
Learning exactly what the consequences of your actions are is a far better educational method than simply being told "dont do that".

Yeah...the teen pregnancy rate really reflects that , especially in the inner cities,
And btw, i don't endorse abstinence only, but as part of the whole curriculum in sex ed. Please don't put words in my mouth, or express ideas i have never expressed as my own.

I don't give a damn. When my daughter gets old enough I'm putting her on the pill.
