Texas Teens Increased Sex After Abstinence Program

Yahoo! News - Texas Teens Increased Sex After Abstinence Program
Abstinence-only sex education programs, a major plank in President Bush (news - web sites)'s education plan, have had no impact on teenagers' behavior in his home state of Texas, according to a new study.
Despite taking courses emphasizing abstinence-only themes, teenagers in 29 high schools became increasingly sexually active, mirroring the overall state trends, according to the study conducted by researchers at Texas A&M University.

Wow, rocket science going on here. Apparently, telling kids not to do stuff because it is bad for them doesn't work. Man, who would have seen that one coming?
