As a mother of teenagers, I am impressed by this pamphlet and it's approach to abstinence. Our school district puts out very weak literature that simply says, "Don't do it if your family disapproves." But this pamphlet gives well-reasoned arguments. In addition to the religious reasons for abstinence, there are twelve reasons from medical and psychological sources (including the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, the American Psychological Assoc., and the Kaiser Family Foundation).High schoolers are intelligent people and can be convinced based on statistics and facts that abstinence before marriage is the way to being a better, stronger, more responsible, and more mature person. They may not be aware of the empirical evidence that early sexual experience often leads to low self-esteem, fear, regret, insecurity, unhealthy dependencies, and stunted emotional growth... not to mention exposure to the numerous incurable sexually transmitted diseases.
