More Proof that Liberal Sex Ed. Doesn’t Work

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the  percentage of American students using condoms hit its peak at around 60% a  decade ago, and has stalled since then, even declining among some demographics.  A recent study released by the Sex Information and Education Council of Canada found that nearly 50% of sexually active college students aren’t using condoms.  Other reports have found that while teenagers are likely to use a condom  the first time they have sex, their behavior becomes inconsistent after that.

Health officials from Oregon to  Georgia are ringing alarm bells about rising rates of sexually transmitted  diseases, worried that kids aren’t getting the message. Sex education is  more robust than it was for previous generations, but a 2012 Guttmacher  Institute report revealed that while nearly 90% of high schools are teaching students about  abstinence and STDs, fewer than 60% are providing lessons about contraception  methods.

The CDC estimates that half of new STD infections occur among young  people. Americans ages 15 to 24 contract chlamydia and gonorrhea at four  times the rate of the general population, and those in their early 20s have the  highest reported cases of syphilis and HIV.   READ MORE
