"In many European countries -- Switzerland in particular -- sexual intercourse, at least from the age of 15 or 16 years, is considered acceptable and even part of normative adolescent behavior." And yet they have one of the world's lowest rates of abortion and teen pregnancy. Could it be because of easy teen access to actual real contraception and health/sex education? Or could it be because their country is not run by the Protestant Taliban?

Oh, and they have remarkably low rates of STDs, too. Shocking what a civilized country can do. Best quote at the end:
"The main difference is that in the States sexual activity is considered a risk. Here we consider it a pleasure."
