Letter to the Editor

Abstinence only method that works

To the editor:

Alan Journet writes that, thanks to President Bush, the government is promoting teen pregnancy, single mothers and sexually transmitted diseases with its abstinence-only education policy. He advocates continuing the disastrous sex-education programs of the past 32 years as a solution for these increasing problems, in spite of the evidence they don't work. All of these problems have increased dramatically since sex education was first introduced.

Many people argue that teens are going to do it anyway, so why not show them how to do so safely? Well, Joe Pedophile desires sex with children. Should we teach him how and move him into a home near a school? After all, he is going to do it anyway.

Forty-five million children have been killed by abortion since 1973. That is the combined population of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.

More children are killed each day than were killed in the World Trade Center terror attack.

Journet actually makes the case against sex education when he says, "Comprehensive sex education in schools promotes abstinence as the best means of avoiding pregnancy and transmitting communicable diseases.
