Everything I always wanted to know about SEX

According to a recently released study, Canada's teen birth rate has decreased 38 percent, while the teen abortion rate declined 35.7% The reasons? Teenage women are not more or less likely to have sex than they were 10 or 15 years ago. According to Alexander McKay, research coordinator at the Sex Information and Education Council of Canada, the reasons for the decline are (1) better access to contraception, (2) higher quality sex education (including the internet and planned parenthood clinics) and (3) "Canada's relaxed attitude toward toward adolescent sexual health  allows teens to be better educated on the subject."

Pro-Life activists should be happy. But I wonder if they really are.
