Red Sex, Blue Sex

Red Sex, Blue Sex
Why do so many evangelical teen-agers become pregnant?
by Margaret Talbot

“Social liberals in the country’s “blue states” tend to support sex education and are not particularly troubled by the idea that many teen-agers have sex before marriage, but would regard a teen-age daughter’s pregnancy as devastating news. And the social conservatives in “red states” generally advocate abstinence-only education and denounce sex before marriage, but are relatively unruffled if a teen-ager becomes pregnant, as long as she doesn’t choose to have an abortion.”

An amazing article from the New Yorker that Mama Bean sent to me back in October. I finally got around to reading the entire thing. It’s fairly lengthy, but well worth the read and brings up some interesting points and ideas.
