[Via Joe Huffman:]

"The argument that making contraceptives available to young people would prevent teen pregnancies is ridiculous. That's like offering a cookbook as a cure to people who are trying to lose weight."
--Rev. Jerry Falwell

What a bizarre analogy. If you want to compare to giving an overeater a cookbook, you'd have to, say, talk about giving teens a copy of The Joy of Unprotected Sex with Multiple Partners. Giving teens contraceptives is more analogous to giving an overeater some tofu.
