    The proof of the truth of my statement is that the kids have to have signed notes to opt out of the program...not opt in.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    What a bunch of worthless losers.
    From my perspective, worthless losers are grown people who's hearts are so cold and hard that they would look at children and call them worthless losers.

    Re: Condoms for free at 22 city schools

    Does anyone seriously think that just providing condoms is going to do much, if anything, to solve the problem of teen STD's? If, as another poster alluded, kids are reacting to their impulses, what makes anyone think that, in an impulsive moment, any kid is going to stop and find and use a condom? That requires planning and consideration of future consequences, which is the polar opposite of acting on impulses. And what boy is going to voluntarily strap a numbing device on his penis anyway?

    Education about consequences of sex and parent involvement in helping shepherd kids through their impulsive years is what is needed here. Condoms should be the LAST item considered in a long line of STD and pregnancy prevention steps.

    That's out of touch. 'Abstinence only' failed. Teenagers use condoms today, old timer.

    Hand out something to encourage an activity that we don't suggest you do. Hmmmm that makes sense.

    I don't think anyone is looking for 'solve'. ANY reduction of the problems inherent to unprotected sex is worth the investment.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Re: Condoms for free at 22 city schools

    I thought that condoms are issued from parents themselves as this true story points out:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldFq82DeiYo

    But I mean what is the deal with girls parents issuing an entire box full of condoms? "I know what goes on after the prom so take this box and bang my daughter the whole night until either you are bone dry or there are no more condoms left!"

    Plus one condom box seemed to be one of those multiple purpose condoms. What's the message behind that? The mother "Here's a multiple purpose box full of various condoms. Don't leave a hole unusued now!"

    Ad homs...why? Who mentioned anything about abstinence only?

    Coming over the holiday break to about a third of Philadelphia high schools: clear plastic dispensers chock-full of free condoms.


    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.

    The dispensers would be a new thing, but the local schools around where I live in Texas have had free condoms from the school nurse for years.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Re: Condoms for free at 22 city schools

    Condoms...good lord I cant believe people resist providing free access. look...people that believe they are responsible enough to have sex SHOULD be responsible enough to afford a few bucks for a box of condoms. Women deciding to knock boots with someone SHOULD probably be a little more discerning in their selection of men when it comes to being able to do something so basic and simple as providing and wearing a condom. But...since responsibility isn't exactly a word people are fond of...then splurging and handing out free condoms in the hope that there will be at least a few unwanted pregnancies (and a few less abortions) is nothing but a 'good' thing.
