  •  17 years of Catholic education here. (5+ / 0-)

    I can only think of MAYBE 5 girls in my years who dropped out to bear a child.  The reason had to do with the fact that 90% of us had plans for after graduation--college or tech school and a career. THAT really makes a huge difference.

    But I think comprehensive sex ed would have helped prevent the 1% of girls who get pregnant from getting pregnant.

    In college, a Catholic ne, bihht control was NOT available at all.  I know of 3 girls who dropped out to have the child--2 got married, one gave her son up for adoption,a  decision which has haunted her for 40 years--and one I accompanied to a gynie to get the crude 1970 version of Plan B.  

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
