    Don't be obtuse. Everybody in this thread understands the implication that they would be tax-payer funded.

    wow, you pissed on your cornflakes

    that is the problem-too many people think stuff other people are taxed to provide them with are FREE

    the answer is it depends

    if we taxpayers are forced to pay for the spawn of irresponsible teenagers than perhaps condoms issued to horny youth is a good idea

    on the other hand if people were forced to pay for their mistakes they might think first before dipping their uncovered wick

    I agree. And if I could change the culture I would but I can't, and I don't believe expecting it to be changed is realistic. Therefore, I think we should make decisions that actually work in this world, not what they should be if everything was perfect.

    No. They should be made readily available, but if they want to screw around, they should be willing to face the responsibility that goes along with it. One of our problems is that we fail to hold people accountable for their decisions and choices, then we end up rewarding them for the bad decisions that they make.

    That might be true, but there are always going to be those teens that are more risque. It's the age, the hormones, the whole maturing process. It's completely normal for teens to pull away from their parents and experiment with things. Unfortunately, sometimes those things lead to bad outcomes.

    That is pretty much my sentiment, too.

    Well, teenagers actually. Who are notorious for not giving it a lot of thought before dipping their wick. So I'm not sure how much that would help really.

    your last point is sound. however, this society has gone way too far in excusing and cleaning up the mistakes of people and that only encourages the mistakes to be repeated. I couldn't care less if 17 year olds engage in responsible protected sex. Religion plays no role in my views. But I tire of the attitude that it takes a village to keep some horn dog from knocking up little miss hottotrotcrotch
