Sex-Ed...Abstinence and Birth Control

Lawn Griffiths is the Spiritual Life editor at The East Valley Tribune. He makes a good point in this excerpt from his column the other day.

Kudos to those candidates who passionately answer the fierce anti-abortion forces with a national call to reduce pregnancies through responsible and thorough sex education, including information on condoms as a preventive. Moreover, adoption should become easier to ensure babies and children will have homes where they are wanted.

The best way to reduce abortion is to reduce pregnancies that are not wanted.

My viewpoint...
I would favor abstinence, but I know that kids are going to experiment and make mistakes. Therefore, I think that they should be informed about birth control. I seriously believe that this would reduce the number of abortions in this country.

Well, one thing for sure -it can't hurt anything -or anyone -can it?
Educational programs, abstinence, various birth control methods being available are never going to make the issue of unplanned pregnancies disappear but with the options all in place, available, along with good guidance for people to not NEED to experiment too, it will make a difference.
