Abstinence programs show broad results

LifeNews reports that a mentor-based abstinence program provides broad positive results across various areas of a girl's life, lowering her risk of drug use, alcohol use, and smoking.

The research showed girls in the Best Friends program were six and a half times less likely to have sex, about two times less likely to drink alcohol, eight times less likely to use drugs, and more than two times less likely to smoke, compared to their peers.

Who could complain about that?
