Abstinence Distortions

The battle for abstinence education is about to take off in Congress. What we can expect is many distortions promoted by the enemies of life and truth.

An example is from U.S Rep. Diana DeGette in a speakout column in today’s Rocky Mountain News. She offers many lies; I will focus on one. It has to do with a study conducted by Mathematica Policy Research. If you believe what DeGette says, you would conclude that the study showed that “abstinence programs are useless.” The study didn’t say that.

Here are two links to the Medical Institute for Sexual Health and their analysis of the study. Here is their press release and a complete report.

One thing is for sure. People like DeGette have an agenda that is not in the best interest of children.

All who hate me love death. Proverbs 8:36

The compassion of wicked people is nothing but cruelty. Proverbs 12:10
