    Um, yeah, he's wrong about teachers getting arrested for teaching what state law directs them to teach, and that many parents routinely teach to their children as well.

    If you think this idiotic ploy by this DA has any connection to reality, well, I have to stop here to stay within forum guidelines.

    Sex ed isn't out teaching them to have sex, it's about making responsible choices so that you are protected from harm. If they don't learn about it in an official capacity, then they will learn about sex from their peers and the media they watch. Most parents don't do the sex ed talk or it's extremely brief and doesn't deliver the facts.

    Abstinence is a valid tool to avoiding all the problems associated with sex, but all scientific evidence points to the fact that abstinence-only education doesn't work. We live in a world where making love can get you sick now if it's with the wrong person so you need to protect yourself.

    I found most sex education classes redundant growing up because I was already looking up the reading materials on my own, but most of my peers only knew what their friends were talking about and plenty of rumors and misinformation got ironed out in the classroom. I didn't grow up in the google era though, so now I'd imagine a lot of kids who are curious just look up the facts online. It's still beneficial to have an educator explain it to you though.

    There is no valid reason to deny young people access to knowledge about their own bodies for their self-protection and self-actualization. Keeping people ignorantly in the dark is the best way to ensure that they make mistakes in life, and in this case mistakes that they could possibly never recover from.

    Why shouldn't they?

So if you read closely, the district attorney is also implying that even parents teaching their children how to use a condom is illegal and could lead to prosecution.

    So what do you parents think of that? This prosecutor isn't saying "Leave sex education to the parents," but rather, "Anybody who tries to give a teenager comprehensive sex education is breaking the law" and taking the decision out of the hands of parents.

    So, parents, I would think twice before supporting this district attorney who says he can prosecute anyone who teaches a teenager how to use a condom, because he's including parents in that group.
    Probably the same thing that happens when parents let their children drink in the home: nothing.

    Here in SD you can give your child hard liquor if you want, as long as it's in your home; that doesn't mean minors can or should be allowed to drink in bars or other public venues.

    So do keep in mind that teachers are not afforded parental rights and the the public school is not a private home.

    Besides, the left doesn't support homeschooling, this would include sex-ed.

    Teens are gona smoke, too, so it follows you support free Marlboro Lights handed out at the school..."they're going to smoke anyway...

    Same exact thing.

    Yes, we should tech teens about having sex safely, and safely means in a committed relationship.

    Some token minority of teens are going to do whatever anyway, that doesn't mean we condone it.

    Another sweeping, and unsupported, statement.

    Except for the part where condoms prevent unwanted pregnancy.

    Then again, this comparison doesn't really apply to me because I support teens having sex.

    Uh, what? Unwanted pregnancies are a result of sex, which has nothing to do with whether or not someone is in a relationship.

    EDIT: Btw, they really need to add a section into the curriculum about grooming. There's nothing nastier than a hairy snatch.

    Now that is quality debate there. Accuse some one you disagree with of being something vile with no evidence. Keep up the good work.
