Abstinence only education is terrorism.
Really, what is terrorism? The use of fear to achieve a goal. If that's the case than people who rather than provide good sex education provide fear, lies, and generally terrorize children are actually terrorists. Abstinence is fine, really it's safe, effective, and not really an issue. However, sex education should be comprehensive and that little "only" there means that it is anything but... and usually it involves lies about other methods of preventing STIs and pregnancy. The goal is to scare the sex right out of them. And this is done through fear and misinformation. They don't go into a market place and blow themselves up... but they are certainly taking lives.
