"Study: Abstinence Classes Don't Stop Sex". Freking, Kevin. Ithaca Journal. Ithaco, New York. April 14, 2007. or according to the page: http://www.mathematica-mpr.com/publications/PDFs/impactabstinence.pdf.

In this article you will find many arguements backed up with statistics. Overall the article is stating that you cannot determine whether there is evidence of that sexual abstinence grew or whether it caused more unsafe sex. The author makes it clear that there is no evidence by stating several issues that have different factor to it to determine it as a whole. For example, the survey used in this experiment was whether the program used affected teens for less and/or protected sex more or not. Some studies showed that it did, but they were in different circumstances. But it also stated results being the same between small town and big cities. There were also the different types of programs that could have been in effect.
