Okay, right-wingers…let’s go through this. You don’t want sex education in the schools (where else are kids going to learn? No, they won’t learn at home.), you don’t want birth control, you don’t want abortions, you don’t want the morning-after pill, and you don’t want unmarried pregnant teenagers. Do you all need to take sex education classes? I’m beginning to think so.
Here’s a hint: neither storks nor angels brings unwanted children into this world. Teenagers do and will engage in sexual behavior – they’re teenagers!

OB-GYNs Are Confused By The Political Fight To Restrict Emergency Contraception
– Owen Montgomery, MD: “I would much rather have a 13- to 14-year-old girl who needs emergency contraception have access to it than come to my office with an unwanted pregnancy… In our clinics in the university, we see lots and lots of teenagers. And many of these young ladies have no access to good parental role models, and they need access to emergency contraception when they need access. And they can’t wait for permission from a judge, or someone else of authority
But you, RWers, don’t want this, right? You want teenage mothers, apparently – or, let’s say, clearly You want children who are raped to bear their rapists’ children. And why? Is it ‘God’s will’ that they have the children of their rapists or fathers or brothers or cousins?
You don’t seriously believe abstinence-only policies work, do you?
