Isn’t abstinence education based on fear?

  • Some fear is necessary to protect us in every day life, such as fear of running into the road or jumping off a high cliff. Fear of pregnancy or exposure can save a teen from making a serious mistake.
  • Young people who have had sexual experiences can be filled with fear – fear of meeting an ‘ex’, fear of pregnancy, fear of silent infection, fear of HIV/AIDS. Those who save sex have none of these fears.
