Abstinence only sex-ed doesn't work!

Yet another example of abstinence only sex education not working in Carroll County, Maryland.

"There are days when seven or so teens come for emergency contraception and all come from the same high school or middle school," Marucci-Bosley said. "There's a huge number of 16- and 17-year-olds who say they've had 30 or 40 partners."

Yeah, abstinence only education is doing wonders for those students. EC is not for regular use as birth control. I don't even want to think about the STDs that are probably going around those schools. Maryland should go the way of New Jersey and stand up for full sex education.
