As part of my job each day, I’m exposed to a lot of news that I dissect and analyze and present it on the radio with a little opinion thrown in for good measure. As part of this, I often comb through all the great research being done in contemporary science, and the data it produces for us to learn from.
One of the subjects that’s come up a lot on my show a little recently is teen pregnancy and sex education policy, abstinence-only programs, so-called ‘purity’ ideas and the like, and how the data speaks fairly strongly about that subject.
Since La Paz County has relatively high teen pregnancy rates and relatively low information being taught in the name of abstinence, I thought I’d present it in this video so that, maybe, people who care can use it as a tool to talk about the subject. Enjoy.
