She explained to me that having a baby before you're ready can make your life goals much more difficult and is tragic. She constantly offered birth control when I was a teen. I wasn't a pregnant teen either, and I knew very well the struggles it could bring in life.

    I think my mom's attitude and upbringing worked fine, and much better than the bury-your-head in the sand, abstinence only, and avoiding the sex talk with your kids approach.
    You are lucky to have such a mother. The population we are discussing do not have such parents.

    Well that can't be done. And if he spent one day in the trenches of America he would understand why.

    And 'feeling the pain' is spread amongst every tax paying American. That is the part you don't get.

    You mean in what way is the government spending less to cover up the mistakes of people. There is already ways to get free condoms at this very moment, so all you are really dealing with here is the distribution system in which they are given for free. Since the teens are not using these other outlets or even buying themselves while having the knowledge on why they should use them it clear they have no interest in doing it in the first place and as such the idea fails to save money for the government.
    Provide me a link to where a condom program has failed in the past. You can't just say that nobody's going to listen and it is a failure. Why not try it out and SEE if it helps?

    I care less about whether they're perfect and more about whether you expect me to pay for their choices and actions.

    You need to start letting the ones who aren't responsible suffer. You admit responsibility is on the decline. Covering their irresponsibility is not the way to turn things around.

    Lots of parents don't talk to their kids about sex at all. A lot of kids learn about sex from their friends. It's not necessarily that the parents are "bad" parents. A lot of times the parents are from another generation where such things were NOT discussed, especially with children. They feel uncomfortable talking about sex.
