This is terrible. Sex is filthy and nasty. How do I know this? When my mother caught me playing with my penis she said: "Nasty, nasty". She wouldn't lie.
Seriously folks, the cat is out of the bag and we aren't going to put it back in. Kids having sex is a fact of life. Why should they be punished for it by having kids while still children. I feel there is an overriding social need that should supersede the superstitions of their parents.
80% Dropout Rate Found For Pregnant Teenagers
Yup, phantom indeed. Nobody.
Uh, Plan B is developed and manufactured by private drug companies. Non sequiter.If you want to talk cost, plan B wins. From its inception, how much has plan B cost to test, study, and come to market? Probably a lot more then that phantom high school dropout.
I disagree with the entire premise. It is not up to the schools, letter sent or not, to even attempt to give my child medication OR birth control for that matter.
You must be 18 to purchase this @ a pharmacy, I believe. Why would I allow the school to give my 15 year old (whatever age) a medication which hasen't been tested on those younger than adulthood?
Most schools do not even have a "school nurse" anymore, they have parent volunteers. I know because I was one!...I do NOT want some secretary or parental volunteer to give my child medication.
Are the schools also making the person handing out the medication any medical training in what side effects to look for? Is the child staying in the nurses station once the pill is taken to be watched in CASE there are complications or are they given a pill and told to get back to class?
So the school has a permission slip, does this absolve them of ANY/ALL responsiblity if something happens to this child?
This ENTIRE idea of the school doling out pills to children is assinine, to say the least and criminal at most.
Grace has been defined as the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul.
All I keep reading is people wanting to pass responsibility of actions on to someone else for not telling them something wasn't good for them.
The problem is folks, sex is no longer looked at as a bad idea. Hell just read the comments here.
Want to know how you put the "cat back in the bag"? You simply don't give people the option of scapegoating their way out of it. Quit giving people freebees and birth control which does nothing but multiply the problems. Why not just put a big sign on your house that tells everyone your daughter is "open for business & it only costs you a box of condoms!"????? Teenage girls are about 1 step below a prostitute these days.
Government can't solve the problem folks, they will only compound it by stepping on your rights as an individual and as a parent. Look at this story, hell they already opted everyone's kid into the program. Who gave them such power????
