Oh, hell no!
All high school students should have access to free condoms from the school, so 15-16 when they are entering high school.

See - I'm looking at all this as a parent: If my kids come home with condoms they're grounded . . . and the school's going to get their ass reamed for encouraging my children to have sex. Sex is a serious and irresponsible activity that should not be engaged in while they're teens. It is my job as a parent to try to get them to understand WHY.
Everyone can put a lid on the 'but they'll do it anyway' crap - I'm attempting to raise my children to be BETTER than their impulses and desires and put their Futures before everything else. You know - saying no to peer pressure and no to drugs. I mean sure - some kids will do drugs anyway but I'd prefer my kids not be given a doobie with the belief that they were going to be one of those few anyway. Same thing. I will not just ASSUME my kids will be the ones to do the stupid **** that they shouldn't do. That's just beign a failure as a parent if you have that thought in your head about your kids all the time.
I'm not raising them to just think it's ok to run around and **** just because they want to . . . the whole 'they'll do it anyway' is true for SOME but when people start making serious decisions BASED on that as if it's a fact applied to all then that's SERIOUSLY ****ed up.
I think it's a sad fact that people just expect the lowest behavior and are willing to just excuse it or brush it off like it's not important or an issue at all. . . just 'whatever' . . . ridiculous.

I don't have any kids, but if I ever do I will assume that they WILL be the ones to do stupid ****. That seems like a far safer course of action when it comes to their sexual health.I will not just ASSUME my kids will be the ones to do the stupid **** that they shouldn't do.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

It costs society far less to make condoms, the cheapest form of birth control, available to youths that want to have sex and thereby reducing resultant medical costs, contributing to unwanted children, etc then it does to hide them away for fear of encouraging sex. Moreover who really thinks some kid is going "Gee, I wasn't really thinking about having sex, but now that I have a condom I can totally do it!" It wasn't that long ago that many of us were 14 and so on.
