Have you caught it?

If not, go to twitter, and do a search for #thanksabonly

It occurred to me yesterday that for as much as the ab-only folks talk about how much these programs benefit young people, I never seem to see any of their sites or information listing testimonials from youth, the way we have them for comprehensive programs like ours:

Gee. Go figure.

So, I thought I'd give everyone the chance to write them and thank abstinence-only programs for what they have given them. The results are poignant, powerful, interesting and...well, pretty much what we expected.

Go have a look!
