Abstinence works: A personal story from the Texas Gov.

17 Feb

Statistics show that Texas is ranked third in teen pregnancies and first in repeat pregnancies (not to mention first in spending federal dollars to teach abstinence only).

But Texas Govna Rick Perry don’t like statistics. He prefers some personal anecdotes to set the record straight.

Gail Collins relays it all in her latest column:

“Abstinence works,” said Governor Perry during a televised interview with Evan Smith of The Texas Tribune.

“But we have the third highest teen pregnancy rate among all states in the country,” Smith responded.

“It works,” insisted Perry.

“Can you give me a statistic suggesting it works?” asked Smith.

“I’m just going to tell you from my own personal life. Abstinence works,” said Perry, doggedly.

On my own personal note, I’d like to hear more about Perry’s abstinence experiences. Please share, Govna.
