Abstinence works

When it comes to preventing STD's and pregnancy, it's works everytime it's tried.
So "W" wants to spend $270 million for educational programs to promote abstinence.
Well of course those on the left (who love programs) don't like this one. They point
to a study that indicates no reliable evidence exists that abstinence programs work.
As if all of these other programs (like condom-ed) have reliable evidence that they
were effective. If they worked we wouldn't be having this conversation. This program
could actually be done for $0 if parents would do the promoting. Isn't that their job?
