Asked if she would redirect money from abstinence-only programs to sex education, Ms. Pelosi said, “Yes,” adding that the current program “caters to a radical right-wing view.”
The truth be known, neither works. No program of "just don't," or "don't forget your birth control" will work as long as society just accepts the actions, and the results. The results being unwed mothers and skyrocketing STD numbers. Societal pressure must be brought on the children involved.
It also must be brought on the Gollywood slimes who mouth about how a man isn't needed to raise a child and Oprah should receive relentless pressure to scream don't have sex. Don't get pregnant.
And the man who impregnates a woman must marry or support. DNA testing should be used to identify the Daddy and when they don't, put them in jail.
Now that sounds terrible, but go back to the 50's. Trust me, sex was just as important then as now, but both the girl and the boy felt a huge amount of pressure to not have a baby.
In the final analysis, this is hard on the individual, but so is the punishment for all societal rejected actions.
That's how a society maintains its norms. Not by arguing over how to prevent it.
