Abstinence Education Preferred!

Abstinence education gets an ‘A’ from parents

The survey shows that 79 percent of parents with children ages 9 to 16 want them to receive abstinence education. Support among African-Americans parents, like Bryant, is even higher, with 86 percent supporting abstinence education for their child.

“This survey’s findings shows abstinence education is a women’s issue, a Hispanic issue, an African-American issue, a health issue and a common-sense issue with strong support across ethnic groups, age demographics and political affiliation,” says Valerie Huber, president of the National Abstinence Education Foundation (NAEF), which commissioned the survey.

Is it fair to think then, given that the Philippines is a predominantly Catholic country, that these statistics would apply here as well? The parents we talk to WANT abstinence education for their children. Don’t you?
