There's a link to a petition at the bottom of the article. I signed it. One quarter of teenage girls have sexually transmitted diseases. One third of girls will be pregnant before the age of 20. These numbers are up since the federal government instituted their abstinence-only programs. Ignoring sex and pregnancy doesn't make it go away until "appropriate". This affects the health of the next generation and filters into other social and economic areas.
From a health standpoint, women deserve options.
