Well ain’t this a little piece of irony. According to CBS, a new study shows that students who attend private religious schools are more likely to receive abortions than students who attend private schools.
. . . in the June issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior showing that unwed pregnant teenagers and women in their 20s who attend or have graduated from private religious schools are more likely to have abortions than young women who go to public schools:
Researchers studied some 1,504 unmarried and never-divorced women ages 26 and younger from 125 schools. The women were as young as 14 and as old as 26 at the time they discovered they were pregnant. Some one quarter admitted having abortions, which researchers say is probably an underreported percentage.
I think the explanation for this is pretty simple. Abstinence only sex education is a joke, ya’ll. Multiple government studies have confirmed this. This study was obviously in the works well before the Sonia Sotomayor nomination or Dr. Tiller’s murder, but the timing of its release couldn’t be any better.
