    Noodlehead, This Is For You, Idiot X

    T his is in response to a pm I got telling me to grow up and stop being a jerk because a comment I left a few days ago.     I went to a Catholic school. Despite our year group being a little more promisucous than the one above us and the ones below, we only had one...

    ..

    I believe that condoms should be available in high schools, even middle schools, because teens, even pre-teens are having sex, and I much rather them being protective than unprotected. of course, I don't believe anyone under the age of 18 should be having sex, but lets face it...

    Lower Teen Pregnancy..

    I think if they give free condoms in high school it might lower the teen pregnancy rate.

    Um Yeah

    In case anyone was wondering, teens are having sex more now than ever, and teen pregnancy is on the rise. I think we should all remove our heads from our  A_S_S_E_S  and start providing condoms, don't you? Seems the abstinence speeches aren't exactly working. Let's...

    Humans Are Animals!

    I am not familar with the educational systems of countries outside of the US.  I just know the we suck. Sexual education needs to start much earlier.  Instead of starting in fourth grade it really needs to start in second.  Not so much teaching about...

    From Day One ....

    I believe that condoms should be available free of charge at high school. Preaching and teaching abstinence does not work. The only way to stop HIV, other STDs and unplanned pregnancies is to except the fact that teens ARE having sex. Talk to them about it - and make...

    The Lesser Of Two Evils

    Anyone who's a parent knows that once puberty hits, all bets are off when it comes to stopping their kids from having sex at some point. For some, they succeed in convincing their kids to either hold off on it, or at the very least, make sure that they not only use protection...

    Evolution Only Too.

    sex education and mandated evolution only. Write it into the bloody constitution.Also require that private education follow suit. All education should be considered at least PARTIALLY public and thus capable of it. No religious education what so ever.That's what Church is for, in...

    Yes

    It's good idea for High Schools to have condoms. Safe sex is better than unsafe sex.

    In All Honesty

    I think they should be available in high schools because it's inevitable - there will always be kids that will screw around. People should learn to accept this reality instead of denying it. At least the STD/unwanted pregnancy rate would go down if condoms were actually...

    Living Proof Of That One..

    I mean, I'm not saying that my ex wouldn't have gotten pregnant if there had been condoms at the school.. Because it hadn't been a planned thing and I hate condoms with a passion.. But a lot of people go to parties KNOWING exactly what they're going to do with the people there...

    My Perspective.

    It's well known that teenagers are going to do it more often then not. There have been times when government has tried to stop this such as banning skirts, teaching sex-ed, and vocally challenging it. It oubviously doesn't work and it seems most logical that if teenagers have...

    Definitely

    I've already posted my views on sex education on a thread about that topic.  To give my views in a nutshell, I believe it should start young.  When I was going through schools, I did not get any proper sex education until I was 16+, and even then it was really just...

    I Thought They Were

    I think people should not have sex without one... if you are planning a baby get tested before as herpes in women can mean you having to have a Cesarean birth... aids and heaps of other std are still around ... but condoms do not protect as much as most people think! the man who...

    Condoms And High Schools

    " I Am Sure That Would Help......"

    lessen the number of teen pregnancies and definitely help stop some of the Venereal Diseases. Let's face the fact. Teenagers know what sex is and most spend a lot of their time thinking about sex, and hoe to "get some"...I am sure that kids know more abut sex than most adults...

    Prevention Is Better Than Cure

    If a youngster wants to start having sex then they will, regardless of what adults tell them. It's better that they are provided with what they need to be careful rather than them taking risks and ending up a parent at 14, having an abortion or catching some STD. We all need...
