CDC: Most Teens Choose to Abstain

A recent study shows that most teenagers are virgins, contradicting claims from family planning groups that most young people do not abstain from sex and more sex ed should be taught in schools.

The Centers for Disease Control found that 58 percent of girls ages 15-19 years old and 57 percent of boys in the same age group have never had sex.

The most common reason the teenagers gave for abstaining was that the practice goes against their religion or morals.

"This study has huge significance for our nation's public and even private schools - many of whom have been regurgitating Planned Parenthood's dangerously inaccurate sex-education curriculum," said Judie Brown, president of the American Life League.

The report also found that the number of "sexually experienced" has slowly declined since peaking at 51 percent in 1988.
