Official Response to Critical Abstinence Education Report

This report misses the boat. These issues have been raised before and discredited. Unfortunately what they continue to do for purely political reasons is to take issues and information out of context to try and discredit abstinence education, which is a disservice to our children.
Blanco’s Web site does not attempt to promote religion

We have looked for the content that Cook finds threatening to the Constitution and have not found it. There are comments of young people who practice abstinence and give their reasons. For some, it is because of religious principles, but they are not pushing religion. They are promoting abstinence.

Not Until My Wedding Night

I think sisters have to start raising their standards and begin to ask themselves, "What is it I really want?" Most of us want passion, commitment and intimacy, but we confuse intimacy with intensity. Intimacy is the ability to be completely yourself with another person, to share your hopes and dreams and your biggest fears, and not be afraid that the person will laugh at you or talk about you behind your back.--Lakita Garth

Kinsey Confusion: The Boomer bummer on the silver screen

For most of us, sex doesn't mean power, but vulnerability. It means trusting another to be kind toward imperfections and scars and sags; trusting that they will be kind because they love you, because they said so, because they sealed it with a ring. This is why marriage is where sex is most exuberantly free.

 Waxman Report on Abstinence Education

------------------------------------------
I am doing some research for an English paper on abstinence education and was wondering if you could point me toward some articles on the emotional benefits and studies to this effect.
What is the most common STD? I have had conflicting answers: I read from an Asso. Press article about the CDC that chlamydia was, but I have also read HPV was the most common STD.
