    because you see ,teenagers may have to abort their babies.

    do you agree ?

    we are not animals....
    I don't understand the connection with abortion, but yes, of course, we must not allow children to have sex with anybody until they become adults. That's what the age of consent is all about.

    Lol! That's true for sure, but generally speaking they are SUPPOSED to know better by that age. We can't help ALL of the mentally deficient though.

    I didn't consider myself an adult until... age 26.

    Didn't feel like a man until I was out of school and paying for my own place.

    Nobody said you were.........

    But enough of a high percentage of 18 year olds are still gullible to meaningless phrases like "hope and change," and inexperienced enough with reality, that the point remains.

    It's not that there is necessarily a difference. It's about having to draw a line somewhere in order to protect the young and naive and inexperienced. In other words, one 16-year-old might be extremely intelligent and more than capable of making such decisions, but they are the exception. MOST 16-year-olds are NOT. Therefore, the state would come up with an age that they think has given a child time to grow up a bit (hopefully) and at least get some kind of an education before they are allowed to be married off and start their adult lives. Once you start your adult life, there is NO going back. The best thing for society as a whole is to have an age or perhaps even age-gap type of laws to allow children their childhood and at the same time protecting them against predatory adults who may wish to have control over someone and be abusive because the young can be easily manipulated and are more than likely generally more trusting and naive. That doesn't mean that they are stupid; just that they lack real life experience and that they are not completely grown yet.

    Now tell me what is wrong with that concept.

    Maybe....

    My idiot generation of college kids went and voted for Jimmy Carter, another guy who used meaningless phrases to appeal to our idealism...

    Then, he gave us 22% interest rates, and a non-existent economy, to try and use our new degrees in.

    We couldn't get to the polls FAST enough to vote for Reagan.

    Of course, the media is so invested in this CURRENT turkey that they've failed to inform TODAY'S graduates that he's given them the slowest recovery from a recession in American history, and as a former professor, he's ALL ABOUT them having ENORMOUS student debt, so his professor buds can make 6 figure salaries, funded on the back of student debt, from a "helpful" government.

    He's playing them all for suckers, and because of their naivety, they love him for it....

    l am not talking about marriage

    if they are child ,dont let them have sex with their own peers either

    but if they can have sex with their own peers ,you have no right to convict someone of pedohilia just because he is a little older

    it is their decision ..

    Another point I would like to make is that times have changed SO much. Technology has made life easier. Medical advances have made us live longer. We don't HAVE to rush into marriage and childbearing anymore, so the times have changed to REFLECT that reality.
