Abstinence Only At What Cost?

"Nice try, but no cigar for you here. Your deep-set distain for righteousness and morality prevents you from even seeing the real problem at the source... You believe that the cause of the dam breaking is not sandbagging... I believe the dam needs to be addressed first."
A huge number of people in Africa wouldn't be affected by HIV if your 'righteousness and morality' didn't lead to them catching it in the first place. The same goes for US teens facing massively increased rates of unwanted pregnancies and STDs because of the pig-headedness of Fundamentalist Christian policy makers. Fine, blame people for having sex you don't approve of. They'll burn in hell for it no doubt. But it is astounding that you can defend a policy of sexual health education which shows an utter disregard for the welfare of living people and unborn children purely out of righteous malice.
