Sexual Health of Young People
Columbia Study of Virginity Pledges Reveal Much More About Teen Sexual Activity Than Media Reports Reveal, Notes The Medical Institute for Sexual Health
"A just-released follow-up study about youth who signed virginity pledges reveals much more about the sexual health and sexual decision-making of American young people than what is being reported in the popular press," commented Joe S. McIlhaney, Jr., MD, Chairman and Founder of The Medical Institute for Sexual Health.
Dr. McIlhaney criticized advocates who seized upon the study who dismiss abstinence-education programs as ineffective.
