So how has... sex-ed been working out?
Nearly 40 percent of babies born in the United States in 2007 were delivered by unwed mothers, according to data released last month by the National Center for Health Statistics. The 1.7 million out-of-wedlock births, of 4.3 million total births, marked a more than 25 percent jump from five years before.
According to the article, that's a record high. Maybe we should consider leaving the sex-ed to the parents. We'll let parents teach about sex and let the unwed parents feel a bit of shame for their poor planning. It worked for hundreds of years. Why did we change it?
