The Just Wait program is an alternative to the "sex talk" in public schools. They use over blown facts to scare kids into not having sex until marriage. Separation of church and state is what this country is found upon, so why do we let Just Wait, an openly Christian organization into a public school full of people of different religions?
Just Wait is also extremely ineffective. Odds are, when you tell a teenager not to do something, they will rebel and do it anyway, so why do it? The better way is to say that its okay that you do it, and here is the safe way just in case. Where the program is taught has a higher teen pregnancy rate than places that teach it the correct way. All of this rambling aside, I hope you sign this petition to do what the Just Wait program sets out to do, to reduce teen pregnancy and STDs.
