Who Would Have Guessed?

The Bush war-criminals quietly released a 164-page report today evaluating the administration's abstinence-only education initiative of the past few years. These morons have spent over $87 million per year and about $1.5 billion overall for this abstinence wet-dream of theirs.

What do you think this report concluded? How about a few choice quotes? And if you are a visual-learner, go here for some charts.

Findings: indicate that youth in the program group were no more likely than control group youth to have abstained from sex and, among those who reported having had sex they had similar numbers of sexual partners and had initiated sex at the same mean age.

Sexual Abstinence: Program and control group youth were equally likely to have remained abstinent.

Unprotected Sex: Program and control group youth did not differ in their rates unprotected sex, either at first intercourse or over the last 12 months. Over the last 12 months, 23 percent of both groups reported having had sex and always using a condom; 17 percent of both groups reported having had sex and only sometimes using a condom; and 4 percent of both groups reported having had sex and never using a condom.

Age at First Intercourse: For both the program and control group youth, the reported mean age at first intercourse was identical, 14.9 years.

Sexual Partners: Program and control group youth also did not differ in the number of partners with whom they had sex. Comparing the program and control groups overall, the distributions on the number of reported sex partners are nearly identical. About one-quarter of all youth in both groups had sex with three or more partners, and about one in six had sex with four or more partners.

Wow, what a fucking surprise! No differences at all between the program participants and the control group. That would be $87 million dollars a year, and over $1.5 billion to prove what we already knew.

Here is what we really know--the Bush war-criminals simply wanted to give millions and millions of dollars to their religious fanatic friends. And even though this report proves their idiocy, they kept that money away from American who really needed it. They could have actually used it to help curb teen pregnancy. What a novel idea.
