Teens Often Recant 'Virginity Pledges'

Reuters HealthDay reported on May 3, 2006 on a study which will be published in the June, 2006 issue of the American Journal of Public Health which found that teens often recant or lie about virginity pledges which the current Republican administration has made the corner stone of their pregnancy control programs.

Rosenbaum analyzed data from 13,568 U.S. adolescents.

She found that 73 percent of those who signed a virginity pledge and then went on to have premarital sex disavowed ever having signed such a pledge.

The teens were initially surveyed in 1995, and again a year later.

She also found that adolescents who'd had premarital sex and then decided to make a virginity pledge were highly likely to misreport their earlier sexual history, which makes it difficult to accurately assess virginity pledges' effects on early sexual intercourse.
