    Is it possible for you to make your point without using the word retarded? It speaks volumes of your limited intellect.

    Whether you agree with the distribution of condoms or not is frankly irrelevant unless the current social programs are overhauled. That was the point.

    It never ceases to amaze me how such a simple concept is so very difficult for so many to grasp.

    You may not want to pay, but the fact is you will if they get pregnant.
    Condoms fail, quite often actually. By not offering condoms, you may discourage sex itself.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    8% is "quite often"? If they work 92% of the time, they save taxpayers money do they not?

    As to "discouraging sex? Really? Are you freaking serious? A stiff prick has no conscience

    Yes, %12 is quite often. Given that most teenagers would be screwing like bunny rabbits if they could legally and freely purchase a limitless supply of condoms. I don't understand your "no conscience" statement, do you really believe that most teenagers willingly have unprotected sex? No, they do not. By giving free access to condoms, you encourage more sexual activity, and with the %12 abysmal failure rate, you may have more pregnancies and/or STDs.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    Let's look at this just a little closer.


    Situation A: condoms used. Most of the time, no unwanted pregnancy. End sequence.

    Situation B: no condoms used. Unwanted pregnancy likely.
    B1 Abortion... controversial and certainly not ideal.
    B2 Has baby, gives up for adoption.... lovely, except adoption in America is a traffic jam and crapshoot...
    B3 Has baby, attempts to raise same while going to HS. Likely to drop out and work a menial job and be poor for life. Child likely to be raised under highly sub-optimal conditions with limited parental supervision/interaction. Chances of child growing up to be a burden on society, or a criminal: High.

    If you're proposing a scenario where there is NO sort of social safety net, what if the Mama can't get a job? Perhaps mama and baby starve.... or perhaps Mama starts stealing or whoring to keep from starvation, or the Babydaddy turns to burglary or armed robbery.


    Y'know.... maybe the whole free condom thing wasn't such a burden after all....

    Why is the word retarded in that context a problem again?

    No, your point was that if I want to lower cost created from the safety net then I must support an extension of that safety net. Why not just remove the damn net if that is my goal?

    Way more than you think.

    My source says 8%. My original quote was incorrect.
