I think I may have been young at just about the right time

A new study out of America's Centers for Disease Control indicates that more than a quarter of American teenage women is infected with a sexually transmitted disease. That abstinence thing seems to be working just fine. And, since the most common infection was the human papillomavirus, it was obviously a great idea to resist vaccinating girls for HPV, which can cause cervical cancer, because to do so would only encourage them to have sex.
