"It is outrageous when a group such as the ACLU attempts to discourage children from safeguarding their emotional and physical well-being by remaining chaste," said ADF Chief Counsel Benjamin Bull. "The scientific fact is that the only way for students to completely avoid the possibility of STDs and teen pregnancy is to remain abstinent until marriage."
