Abstinence education

A study suggested that abstinence education programs delay and reduce sexual activity among teenagers. Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation argues that are some beneificial side effects that are not obvious: "When an abstinent teen is matched against a sexually active teen who is identical in gender, race, parental education, family income and structure, educational aspiration, and self esteem, the abstinent teen is twice as likely to graduate from college."

From the National Review for March 8, 2010
