Abstinence Only Pregnancies?

In a report that makes The Peach wonder if "just say no" means "don't stop," an Ohio school board is expanding sex education after the discovery that 13% of one high school's female population were pregnant. Out of the 490 female students attending Timken High School in 2005, 65 were to discovered to be with child.

The Canton school board's abstinence only program will now include teaching students who decide to have sex to do so responsibly. The program will be renamed either "Don't do it! But if you do, here's Mr. Love Glove" or "I'm saving myself till the next trip to the pharmacy."

I just wrote an article about this same situation here in Texas at

It is obvious that abstinence-only sex education doesn't work. Not sure why our leaders don't see that!!!
