Has Palin's Stand On Sex Education Led To Alaska's High Rates Of Teen Pregnancy?

Cartoon: Daryl Cagle, MSNBC.com

The fact that Sarah Palin's daughter is having an out of wedlock baby is not the point. The point is that Palin whole-heatedly supports positions on teen pregnancy, abortion rights and sex education that may force your daughter into the same predicament of an unwanted pregnancy. Alaska is number 3 in the nation in teen pregnancy birth rates.

Studies have found that abstinence only educations is a not effective in stopping unwanted teen sexual activity and pregnancies. This could be your pregnant daughter if Palin is elected and allowed to influence future attempts to lower teen pregnancy rates through such things as sex education programs. The United States led the way amongst modern nations in it's lack of proper sex education for teens. No wonder we also lead most of the world in teen pregnancy and unhealthy approaches to human sexual activity.

Sarah Palin maybe Annie Oakley and a fine human being, even if she is obviously too inexperienced in foreign policy to be elected Vice President, but what Democrats and Independents need to focus on is that this woman is more dangerously to the right of even John McCain on many important family values issues that would effect how you and your children live in a so called modern society.
