From The New Yorker,
Social liberals in the countryâ€™s â€œblue statesâ€ tend to support sex education and are not particularly troubled by the idea that many teen-agers have sex before marriage, but would regard a teen-age daughterâ€™s pregnancy as devastating news. And the social conservatives in â€œred statesâ€ generally advocate abstinence-only education and denounce sex before marriage, but are relatively unruffled if a teen-ager becomes pregnant, as long as she doesnâ€™t choose to have an abortion.
Do you think that’s true? What do you think this says about America’s values?
