A billion dollars later...

And your teens are still having sex. If you hide the facts from them regarding pregnancy and HIV/AIDS prevention they'll develop their own. (Emphasis mine)
Florida teens who believe drinking a cap of bleach will prevent HIV and a shot of Mountain Dew will stop pregnancy have prompted lawmakers to push for an overhaul of sex education in the state. Another myth is that Florida teens also believe that smoking marijuana will prevent a person from getting pregnant. State lawmakers said the myths are spreading because of Florida's abstinence-only sex education. They are proposing a bill that would require a more comprehensive approach, the report said.It would still require teaching abstinence but students would also learn about condoms and other methods of birth control and disease prevention. The bill just passed its first vote in a committee.
Guess what? Your teens are having sex. Get used to it.

Yes, the good old Bush administration. Seldom right and wrong again. No child left behind, except for the ones maimed from drinking bleach and the ones with the Mountain Dew babies. Courtesy of a bunch of religious, moralizing freaks who can't deal with reality.

LuLu nicely shoves it in the face of one of them.

Then again, Bush's abstinence only program wasn't really about teens, was it? It was about something much more common: money.

Sexually curious teens are nothing more than an expanding heap of collateral damage in Bush's dogmatic, religious, authoritarian lark.
