Idaho can tell kids not to have sex without the guidance of the federal government, thank you very much.

Great news! Idaho has rejected federal funds for abstinence-only education. It has zero effect on teens' sexual behavior, so what's the point? Our national policy towards preventing teen pregnancy is basically a tautology: telling kids not to get pregnant (not how to avoid it) and waiting for that to happen.
