    American Pie!

    My point is, most parents find it uncomfortable to talk to ones kids about this stuff and parents have an often out of wack view of what their children actually do. Children hide things from their parents.. always have and always will. Parents often overreact as we have seen many a time.... the "What, my 15 year old daughter is having sex with her 17 year old boyfriend... RAPE, call the police".. This is why we have sexual education in schools (well in Europe at least)... it works and children get the information they need instead of having to rely on embarrassed parents who thinks that their little angel does not think about sex. It seems that when people become parents they suddenly forget how it was to be a teenager.....
    Well, just to straighten you out. Parents do NOT forget what it was like to be a teen. They remember ALL TOO WELL, and that is why they freak out! That's not too hard to grasp, is it?

    I completely agree with sex ed and birth control, etc. I do not agree with letting children make their own reproductive choices. I just don't see them as being responsible enough. That is why children are still under the control of their parents.

    Another important point to consider is that parents ARE going to be responsible (financially and otherwise) if a child gets impregnated, or if anything else happens to that child. For that reason alone, the parents have a right to know if their child/children are sexually active, regardless of whether or not they had the "talk."

    You really think that the FDA does testing? Really?

    I think you're living in a fantasy world.

    1) kids have sex
    2) kids won't tell parents they're having sex - most at all costs won't tell
    3) kids and parents make bad choices and bad decisions all the time
    4) a kid taking the morning after pill without parents knowledge will prevent a kid from seeking abortion (with or without parents knowledge)
    5) a kid taking the morning after pill without parents knowledge will prevent a kid from actually becoming pregnant
    6) the availability of the morning after pill doesn't change what's happened leading up to needing it
    7) none of the above changes the fact that kids have sex, are going to have sex, and nothing's going to change that
    8) so preventing a teenage pregnancy and/or teenage abortion is a win-win in my book

    Nothing but the further sexualization of our children.

    Then there's the bill in CA that would allow cross-dressing student to pick which bathroom to use or which sports team to try out for.

    It's PROGRESSIVE ya know.

    I would rather someone have access to the pill rather than not get one and have an unwanted baby. I think it makes sense.

    So what's your solution to combating teenage pregnancy? Gonna stick to that whole "abstinence" thing that seems to work so well?

    Sometimes. But I also think they are subject to political pressures which often times subvert the process. The FDA should probably just be part of NIST or some other research lab and should do little to listen to people or politicians.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Chastity belts, staples, threat of a good ass whoopin?? We raised two daughters that had some sense. [least in that dept]

    Today's pop culture has made the problem super worse with their lack of concern (the government will support us), lack of parenting (no father in the home), some sick fascination with being the first in your 8th grade class to have a baby, etc....

    These are the things that need to change, not access to drugs.

    First: Don't 15 year olds have to get parent permission to get aspirin from their schools?
    Second: In this country15 year olds don't carry any identification stating their age-so how do they prove it?
    Third: What moral distinction dictated the age of 15, why not 11?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
