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

    Do we also pass a law that if they dont use the free condums we jail them ?

    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.

    Govt condoms are probably lowest bidder.

    What does that have to do with whether they actually use the condom or not

    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.

    Sorry, I just can't agree. Parents in those areas are not likely to have any worthwhile input to offer in their children's lives. Many are even in prison. I've worked in those areas and in prisons, and I know that many of the parents have copped out on all responsiblity even to their own children. All they care about is getting high and getting laid themselves. They are of no benefit whatsoever to their children.

    In my day people used to grouse because the health department checked our teeth and gave free immunizations in schools. Times have changed. I may be old, but I'm not stupid. Pontificating about the role of 'the parents' when the parents are nothing but worthless drugged out pieces of dog feces is counter productive. Give 'em the condums. It costs little enough. Just because and adult 'should' do something doesn't mean he/she WILL do something.

    Condoms keep their peckers from getting wet. Damned disappointing.

    As a business decision it is idiotic to purchase a product not related to learning and get no money for it, as a teaching decision it is idiotic to promote an act that we know is irresponsible. I wonder what the chances are of a 15 yr old kid properly using a condom in the heat of the moment anyway? Maybe we should provide a room at each school where kids can have sex and have a teacher there to make sure everything is done right.

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?
    That's negation.

    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 A.
