They teach about STDs and pregnancy in abstinence only classes. How do you think they scare kids to abstain? By telling them that the only way to be sure of avoiding pregnancy or disease is to abstain.

In practice, I'm not even sure what the difference is between abstinence education and regular sex ed, other than the advocacy that abstinence education involves.
