Abstinence Education Doesn't Not Not Not Work

I feel good that the feds spend $176 million on abstinence education. That money gets results. Sadly -- but not surprisingly -- those results are the same we'd see if the government didn't spend the money at all.
Students who took part in sexual abstinence programs were just as likely to have sex as those who did not, according to a study ordered by Congress.
Hell, if D.A.R.E. can be called a success even though students who take part in it are more likely to use drugs, I suppose this abstinence stuff is the new gold standard.
