Teen Pregnancy

Okay, so Sarah Palin's daughter is pregnant. Big deal. That tells us nothing about Palin, and it shouldn't be part of the political discussion.

Except.

It does tell us one thing!

Abstinence-only education does not work.

It doesn't matter what kind of family you come from. If you insist on teaching your children that they must practice abstinence without giving them the tools they need to protect themselves should they choose to ignore that advice, the lesson is useless! It doesn't work!

Thanks for proving our point again, Palin.

Seriously. Let's re-think the stance on abstinence-only education. It's silly... and dangerous!

**UPDATE: There's a good article about this over at The Washington Post.
