The commonalities are striking in these sad tales (updated).

A couple of days ago, a fourteen year old girl from Houston delivered a stillborn baby in an airplane lavatory on the way back from a school field trip and didn't tell anyone. Now, another fourteen year old, also from Houston, delivered a live baby in the bathroom at school and killed it by trying to flush it down the toilet.

Anyone want to bet me money whether both of their junior high schools have abstinence-only education?

(And on the topic of sex ed, here's a story out of Florida regarding teens who think that drinking a capful of bleach can prevent HIV, etc.)

Whoever said, "Ignorance is bliss," wasn't thinking about today's teenagers.
