Kids know what they want

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, via Red State Rabble: Speaking of Children Choosing What to Believe, Unsurprisingly, They Want to Learn About Contraception:
“At a House Education Committee hearing, the bill pitted advocates of abstinence-only sex education against those in favor of offering a broader range of information. And most of that testimony was offered by a handful of teens, the majority of whom told lawmakers that they want instruction on contraception.

”'To teach abstinence only is insulting to our intelligence,' said Montana Mallett, 18, a recent graduate of Webster Groves High School. 'You don't have to hand out condoms. Just teach them what's out there.'“
Nothing like smart kids to brighten up your day.
