Bad News For Abstinence-Only? Maybe Not.

Denied a Republican convention or a good storm (so far), everyone's jumping on the Bristol Palin pregnancy bandwagon to bash Republicans, conservative politics, or -- most relevant here -- abstinence-only sex ed. 

But that last bit may be a little over the top, points out this post from Jezebel (Let The Opprobrium Begin).  I mean, besides the obvious part about using children this way.

Among other things, Jezebel notes that Palin has not been a big abstinence-only advocate, and most Alaska schools teach comprehensive sex ed.

Check out the post for more details and links to useful information.  Let me know if there's something missing.
