Waxman Report Is Riddled with Errors and Inaccuracies
(Just received this info today, after all our other posts on this subject)
Article cites numerous studies from medical journals/experts including Adolescent and Family Health, Journal of Adolescent Health and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Centers for Disease Control.
"Waxman’s report denies the well-established correlation between teen sex and increased risk of attempted suicide."The article is written by Melissa Pardue, B.S.W. and Master’s degree in social policy, Columbia University, oft-published and quoted in national press, radio, TV news, etc.
"Representative Waxman’s report also falsely asserts that virginity pledge programs have no positive effects on teenagers."
"Waxman’s report also falsely asserts that no studies exist to show the effectiveness of abstinence education."
"The Heritage Foundation, founded in 1973, is a research and educational institute - a think tank - whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense."
