Hope for State Abstinence Education

This news article from the Columbian highlights some of the great work being done by the Aware (abstinence education) peer mentors. I hope they give the stupid Planned Parenthood Teen Councils a run for their money. You can read how several SWAT (Southwest Washington's Advising Teens) team members were interviewed concerning the impact the program is having at their schools. Hooray for these young people are trying to help other kids in the face of ridicule and scorn from the sex establishment.

The Columbian reports --
The pregnancy rate among Clark County teens ages 15 to 17 was 21 per 1,000 in 2005, the year of the most recent survey. Clark County's teen pregnancy rate was lower than the statewide rate of 27 per 1,000. And, the pregnancy rate among Clark County's teens in 2005 represents a decline. The rate was 32 per 1,000 teens in 2000.

Or course that is bad news for Planned Parenthood's bottom line and why they have foisted their sexed up version of comprehensive sex education on our state schools. We'll watch the numbers given above and see what happens as Planned Parenthood and the OSPI roll out their curriculum in the coming year.
