    The dispensers will be placed in the 22 high schools whose students had the highest rates of sexually transmitted diseases, and condoms will be available to any student - so long as their parents did not sign a form opting them out of the program.

    Is the assumption here that they will use the condoms?

    I doubt it. If it helps great, but I just don't believe it.

    Probably, it's his most interesting country.

    I didn't know that DC was a conservative area either.

    I'd rather see the kids using condoms and being responsible than passing around diseases and/or becoming pregnant, having an unwanted child or an abortion.

    I shouldn't have to "help" anyone from their own stupid decisions. All you're doing is babying them when they need to learn how to wipe their own ***. In fact, it's the poor who say they can't afford condoms that need to learn the value of responsibility the most. If these students are in areas with many diseases and/or pregnancies being common and they haven't learned abstinence then that's their problem.

    I've always maintained that I'd much rather pay for other people's condoms than their welfare, or medical expenses.

    As a libertarian leaning individual, I'd rather not pay for either, but if I have to, I'd rather pay for the condoms.

    You still have to pay for their stupid decisions either way. Even without counting the enormous expenditures in welfare, if they have kids, or contract an STD, that's going to drive up medical consumption. Increase in demand=increase in price.

    I don't wanna pay for them and I don't think you should have to. Now, reality: a woman's control of her reproductive life is a human right and poor women must have access.

    I would rather that kids understood what unprotected sex can cause, and provide the means to prevent it, than paying welfare, abortions and a life of treatments for an STD. Abstinence is a good start, but the decision is theirs.

    This not a right or a left thing, most kids don't think about it much. They DO think about sex alot, and ignoring it won't make it go away.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
