Abstinence education does not increase abstinence

Study: Abstinence classes don't stop sex
"This study began when (the programs) were still in their infancy," said Valerie Huber, executive director of the National Abstinence Education Association. "The field of abstinence has significantly grown and evolved since that time and the results demonstrated in the Mathematica study are not representative of the abstinence education community as a whole."
I find the sputterings of pro-abstinence educators to be hard to believe. But maybe they're right. If so, they should prove it.
