Unintended consequences

Promoting abstinence as the main content of sexual education programs in the US - another example of bad design on pretty much every count. Yes it fits some people's world view but completely misses the actual aims. Widespread promotion of abstinence has had no effect on the rate of young people's sexual activity but the US have the highest teen pregnancy and STI ratios in the developed world. Definitely unintended consequences. Time for a redesign?
