Reasons for Abstinence

Most Teens WAIT: abstinencefirst.com

Contrary to popular belief, most teens are actually NOT sexually active (even though they may talk actively!) and of those who are, most regret their choice and wish they had waited.

In fact, a national survey indicates nearly all teens (93%) said that they should be given a “strong message” to abstain from sex.

Approximately 30 state and federally funded abstinence education organizations in IL have joined forces to communicate the importance of abstinence education for today’s youth.

 

This larger entity is now known as the Illinois Abstinence Coalition.
