I’m a news hound whose job it is to research, dissect and analyze the news and present it to my audience with a little opinion thrown in for good measure. As part of this, I often get exposed to 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 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 I live in an area with high teen pregnancy rates and low information in the name of abstinence, I thought I’d present it in this video so that, maybe, people who care can try to get some change from the local school board. It’s relevant elsewhere too. Enjoy.
