High school student defends abstinence education

From Arielle Spivey's letter in today's Boston Globe:

Though I had always known having sex was not something to be taken casually, I never had a concrete reason for why I wanted to be abstinent. Learning about the scientific and emotional reasoning behind the decision to be sexually active and the possible outcomes let me know that the goals I had set for my life were much more important to me than a moment of "fun."

Read the whole thing...I especially appreciate Ms. Spivey's evangelical attidude as she looks forward to sharing what she's learned.
