A High Priced Lesson in Stupidity

Shocking. Abstinence programs aren't more effective than condom promotion.

You know, there are obviously methodological problems with any study relying on self-report data, but what I don't understand is why they asked kids if they had remained abstinent WITHOUT asking them if that was a CHOICE. There are lots of kids/adults abstinent by a lack of opportunity. But it doesn't mean they're not trying. And, it seems to me that the attitude toward abstinence is a more important variable. Because out of the 50% that reported abstinence, it could very well be that 75% of them just can't get any booty. I mean, they are like 15 and all.
