As Greg Sargent reports on some newly-unearthed video, of an appearance on Scarborough Country, O'Donnell debated Eric Nies of the Moment of Hope foundation about what to teach teenagers about sex -- O'Donnell obviously for abstinence-only education, and Nies for encouraging condom use for teens who will have sex. (Fun fact: The panel also included Dr. Ruth!)
At one point, an exasperated Nies asked: "You're going to stop the whole country from having sex?"
"Yeah. Yeah," O'Donnnell said strongly, apparently attempting to continue her point particularly pertaining to teenagers, amidst a whole lot of crosstalk. "Come on. Young people take their cues--"
Nies shot back: "You're living on a prayer if you think that's going to happen."
"That's not true," O'Donnell responded. "I'm a young woman in my thirties and I remain chaste. Come on. It's unrealistic to think they're just gonna do it anyway."
