I want cold, hard practical numbers. Whatever does the most good within the resources available is what we should do. No catechism, just cold hard facts.
How, exactly?

I am leery of vaccines, because many drugs that we use have later proven dangerous. The pill gives women cancer. ***** nearly killed my friend and reduced his lifespan etc.
I don't disagree on most vaccines — and I believe we are generally overmedicated as a society.

The pill does not, per se, "give women cancer", however. Yes, there is a slight increased risk of breast cancer according to an extensive study — though most other studies have proved inconclusive. The pill actually protects you quite a bit from other forms of cancer.

Frankly, I think that schools are teaching exactly that. The emphasis is on preventing VD not by abstaining from sex, but from employing devices and drugs to make a very risky behavior less risky. The problem is, as our illegitimacy and disease rates show, that this is a false security.
Schools are not going to make the difference in people's abstinence. I mean, they barely make a difference in people's pronunciation of English.

Freedom of speech is the basic freedom of humanity. When you've lost that, you've lost everything.
