Robert Rector of the NRO takes aim at the left’s response to the recent findings of abstinence-based sex education. Here are a few highlights of his article:
You can bet that anyone who pontificates about “moralistic overtones” in abstinence education has never held an actual abstinence curriculum in his hands, let alone read one.
Second, abstinence curricula teach that sex should be linked to “love, intimacy, and commitment” and that these qualities are most likely to be found in marriage.
The recent revelation that abstinence-based sex education programs actually work has left many with questions about what we are teaching our children. I am confident that we will hear much more of the left’s scrambling “new take” on abstinence-based education.
