According to last month’s CDC National Centers for Health Statistics report, over 50% of teens have not engaged in sexual activity. This statistic is prime evidence pointing to the reality that not everyone is “doing it”. Sexual integrity is pursued by over 50% of teens in our nation; therefore, we should recognize this population of students not as a minority, but as a group to serve in our sex education system.
“It is time that we recognize students who are making healthy choices and look at what is motivating them to delay sex,” Alysse ElHage wrote in an article published by Institute for Family Studies. Abstinence-until-marriage is not a thing of the past. It is a virtuous lifestyle choice being pursued by the youth of our nation.
