    If you are to embaressed to go in and purchase them, then you really shouldn't be having sex should you?



    I think parents actually need to step up and start taking care of their kids and making sure their kids are educated about sex and the consequences. To many parents leave it up to schools and complete strangers to teach their children about important stuff (including my own parents).
    Yes there is, but also, if you 13, 14, or 15, most of the time you don't have a job. So you can't pay for these condoms.

    I think Condoms should be left out on a basket in the bulk on a teachers desk.

    Pills I'm not sure because in order for those to be given out it's usually expensive. Moreover, it all depends on the girls body.

    But If you're using generic too at schools, then it's all good. It works just as good without the stupid name brand on it jacking up the price.

    Couldn't agree with you more. Who's to say that children are responsible enough to remember to take a pill each day?

    Especially children who are obviously too irresponsible to carry condoms, since hypothetically the school is providing them BC.

I think information about Planned Parenthood and making kids aware that you can go there and be seen confidentially for birth control (as well as the many other services they offer) would be a good idea too. IMO, more education in general is needed.

    I do however, think that girls 13 and over should be able to see their docs and be prescribe BC without parental consent. Additionally, all medical info about the girls should be restricted so that it cannot be viewed by the parents.

    I think condoms should be available everywhere-including schools. I honestly think they should be produced by the government and free of charge-baskets of them just sitting everywhere. On the subway, in the theatres, in the schools, post office, everywhere.


    I think school nurses should be able to write a confidential referral for girls to see a doctor without parental consent. If the girl is conscientious enough to see the nurse about contraception before having sex, why deny it to her because dear old mom doesn't think she's old enough? That just screams unwanted babies, to me.
    Yup... I agree

    Clearly. I blame rap videos, advertisements and the glorification of sex for the increase in sexual behavior.

    Or I'll just say the parents have to take on more of a responsibility in their child's life, instead of working 24/7 so you can buy them a Wii and material things. That's not going to get you far at all. A lot of times children who feel emotionally neglected reach out to other children looking for attention or love. Thus in order to get that attention they engage in Sexual Behavior.
    , it's a sad situation when that happens.

    yes they should have condoms at schools and they should have proper sex education. parents should play an active roll in providing them the morals they want their children to follow. it is not the schools responsibility to do that part. school is a place for facts to be distributed. i hate the abstonance stuff, it does not work. i do know that when i was a teen, if you told me not to do it i did everything in my power to do it anyway.

    as far as bc pills and sex related health care i think the child should be able to go to the school nurse without fear of their parents knowing and be referred to a dr. the dr should provide care without parents consent. i think a whole lot more teens would get the care they need if they did not have fears or parental reprocussions.

    my girls know that i will talk to them about anything, even sex, they come to continuously to discuss how they feel about their friends pregnancies and sex all the time. i am open and honest and non judgemental because i expect my daughters to make informed decisions on thier own and not rely on my decisions for them all the time.
    I feel the need to be petted too!

    Schools do not have any idea what the medical history of a child is, not to mention age of consent varies from state to state and many high schoolers are not in that age group.
    I don't think anything would make me change my mind.
    Ok so schools shouldn't give out pills. Makes sense.

    But do you REALLY believe schools shouldn't offer sex ed?
