Christine O'Donnell Has a Secret Plan to Stop the Whole Country From Having Sex

Posted by Dan Savage on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 3:14 PM

Some dude in a red t-shirt [WAIT! That dude is the dude from the first season of The Real World!—Hump]: "You're going to stop the whole country from having sex?"

O'Donnell: "Yeah!"

And I love that O'Donnell believes it's "unrealistic" to think that kids are "gonna do it anyway," have sex, despite being admonished to abstain. Here's a little reality for you, Christine...

The United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the industrialized world. The Center for Disease control says that one-third of girls get pregnant before the age of 20. Teenpregnancy.org, a site managed by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, states that there are "750,000 teen pregnancies annually. Eight in ten of these pregnancies are unintended and 81 percent are to unmarried teens."
