Mass is at 11:00 a.m. at St. John’s, gathering at Julia Davis bandshell at 1:00 p.m., gather in front of City Hall at 1:15 p.m.., with speech by David Ripley of Idaho Chooses Life [he once headed the legislative arm of Idaho Education Assn and was ardent pro-abortion until his wife had an abortion—very interesting fellow].

  1. Actually, Mark, I think the 85% pregnancy prevention rate is for the period of a year, not for every sexual act. But the point still stands. What amazes me is that people can be so naive as to think that the same teenagers who can't be responsible in their sexual purity, moderation in drinking, or lack of illegal drug use are somehow going to become models of Responsibility when it comes to condom use, which of course is the sine qua non of the high "success" rate. Somehow our grade school age children all know that sex makes babies, but by the time they reach junior high they seem to have forgotten this. I guess all those public school sex education programs aren't really all that effective in educating kids, huh?
