:I'm adding some findings from a Fox News story that were released today, but I don't know if they'll be left intact or not because they show that kids who pledge abstinence are just as likely to have sex as those who don't, and unfortunately, when they do have sex they are less likely to use birth control or STD protection.  Counter-examples of surveys showing differently would be welcome though.  --[[User:DinsdaleP|DinsdaleP]] 11:38, 29 December 2008 (EST)

The link provided as a reference was written in 2000, before the abstinence program went into full effect under the current Adminstration. There have been several scientific studies, and according to the page history, people have poorly tried to put some of that data in there.

I'm adding some findings from a Fox News story that were released today, but I don't know if they'll be left intact or not because they show that kids who pledge abstinence are just as likely to have sex as those who don't, and unfortunately, when they do have sex they are less likely to use birth control or STD protection. Counter-examples of surveys showing differently would be welcome though. --DinsdaleP 11:38, 29 December 2008 (EST)
