Did you stop having sex because your high school didn't give out condoms?

I didn't think so.  Schools in Provencetown, Mass. are considering a policy to allow the school to give out condoms to students who ask.  Check out the story here.  Abstinence only sex-education costs somewhere in the range of $200 million dollars.  American girls (teens) are four to five times more likely to become pregnant, have a baby, or have an abortion compared to teenagers in the rest of the developed world.  For goodness sake, when will everyone give up on this idea that abstinence only sex-ed actually works?  Wonder how many more teens would stay in school or avoid having a child at 13, 14, or 15?  Geez...
