Yes, that's right: they're condoms. I'll start with this one for today:
The blue pieces of paper suggest these facts
- "1 in 3 women get pregnant under age 20." Well, the National Center for Health Statistics reports 40.5 live births for 1,00o population ages15-19, so unless there are a whole lot of abortions going on there, that figure looks just a little high.
- "80% of abstinence only curricular contain false, misleading & distorted information." This is based on a report commissioned by Henry Waxman that gets repeated in much of the NOW and other feminist literature. Of course, it's not about what the parents want, right? Is that a problem according to the third piece of paper...
- "Most adolescents learn sex ed from parents, friends & media before programs start." I cannot tell what they mean by this; are the programs spreading misinformation, or are the parents and friends? Who has the right information? Oh yes, that's right, must be the people who make these posters.
