Good Sense 

...About sex. I've ranted and raved repeatedly about the stupidity and futility of faith-based sex-ed, and am thus glad to see those views yet again supported by research. This week's JAMA includes research indicating that parental notification laws don't discourage teens from sex, but do increase STD and pregnancy rates. It also appears that
"[girls] with positive attitudes about contraception were much less likely to become pregnant."
Wow, who'da thunk? On a related note, the Spanish Church has broken with the Vatican and embraced condoms as part of an anti-AIDS strategy. This is a real breakthru, and will likely help a great deal.
