    Sex infections still growing in U.S., says CDC | U.S. | Reuters

    "We have among the highest rates of STDs of any developed country in the world," Douglas added in a telephone interview.

    The administration of President Barack Obama has signaled a willingness to move away from so-called abstinence-only sex education approaches promoted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, and conservative state and local governments.

    Several studies have shown such approaches do not work well and that it is better to encourage abstinence while also offering children and teens information about how to protect themselves from diseases as well as pregnancy.

    With all the data available, why are conservatives against sex education?

    Yeah the worst outbreak was the Palin pandemic of 2008. It only seemed to strike Republicans though.
