    Last weekend the results of an interesting study were quietly released to the newswires without a press release or advisory notice, which pretty much guarantees that it'll be skipped over for bigger headlines. A study over the past few years to determine whether or not sex education programs that push abstinence over smart sex and birth control shows absolutely no noticable change in teenage sex or birth rates. The results of the study echo those of earlier abstinence-or-intelligence studies from the 1980's and 1990's, but it seems that history is doomed to repeat itself.
