    Sex is not a crime (at least in most cases). However it IS an act which can have very significant consequences, even if one goes through every possible precaution to avoid them. Just because one used the precautions does not mean that their failure should lead to a "get out of jail free" card being offered to them.

    People having the right to act in an immoral manner is NEVER a good thing.

    Morality is subjective. Your morality is not their morality....thankfully.

    The problem with absitnance only is that it doesn't work if there are not consequences. I can guarantee you that the moment my parents found out I had gotten some girl pregnant without being married to her first, I would no longer have had a family or a home to go back to. Both of my brothers and I knew that. As did most of my cousins. The only person in my immediate family (first cousin) who hasn't done this in the right order is the one who was "daddy's little girl" and knew there wouldn't actually be any consequences to her actions.
    My second cousin who did it was forced to marry the baby's father.
    now, THERE is an enlightened response
    force kids into a marriage not of their own choosing

    If this decision were targeted against males and not females, the reaction would have been radically different. The Right's motivation is to limit women's reproductive freedom however they can. Boys, however, will be boys.

    People need contraceptives a lot more than pretentious douchebags need to control the every behavior of others that will not affect them in any way.

    If they're old enough to be engaging in that act, they must be old enough to be parents, for him to support them, and for them to be out on their own, right?

    At least on a personal level, I completely disagree. As I've said, I'm all for punishing the boys as much as the girls. Forcing him to marry her and support both her and the child until that child is 18 (at the minimum) should make the boy think about the act just as much as the girl.

    You're right it doesn't really affect me. Mostly because I'm smart enough not to let the type of people who would be that stupid into my life. I'm simply trying to help other people make the right decision before they totally FUBAR their own lives. They can feel free to ignore the advice. They might get away with it on this side of eternity, but I'm not so sure about the other side.

    They can ignore your advice? Really? I thought you wanted plan B to be made illegal. Pretty hard to ignore that.

    I WANT it to be illegal. I also know that the medical community doesn't ask my opinion on these things, so my opinion holds no weight with them at all.
