    They should at least use their allowance money.

    I dunno. But clearly, the message isn't resonating with young people.

    I'd rather take their babies away from them and give them to parents who can't have children of their own. That way they can finish their education knowing their child will be in good hands.

    Not only for pregnancy, but STDs also.
    Kids have access to condoms even without the government giving it to them. We can give them access to condoms without taking it out of the taxpayer pocket and encouraging/making it easier for teenagers to do it.

    Also condoms most certaintly are not fool proof. Mistakes happen, what if a couple encouraged by the fact they have condoms has sex and then it breaks or it doesn't work properly. Now the very thing you are trying to prevent, happens.

    1) Condoms solve the problem before it even needs to happen.
    2) It's not like there is already a lot of kids in need of adoption or good foster care.
    3) Some of them can still be good parents and students.

    I would rather tackle the root problem than make a current issue even bigger.

    It isn't, of course; but alas, this is the level to which our society has degraded; where what used to be obvious, common sense and morality is now widely seen as “old fashioned and out of date”.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    There are already more than enough children that need good homes, without adding to them.

    Take them away? I hope that was poor wording on your part...

    No, they can get their ass down to the store and pay for their own condoms.

    Other than death and taxes, show me something that is 100% without failure.

    I'd be happy to, as I have in the past for other things, paid for things from my OWN pocket, when I felt the need was there. This would be no exception.

Once we cross into the progressive utopia in which all wants and needs are "rights", by virtue of simply asking the gov't for help, only then would the answer become yes. To issue SPAM (Supplemental Prophylactic Assistance Mandate) cards to all of our nation's "needy" youth is simply another dreamy (progressive?) gov't program that is low on the priority list of a financially strapped federal gov't - but perhaps this will become an added PPACA mandate, none the less.
    Good evening, ttwtt78640.

    It would not surprise me in the least! I wonder what this world will look like in a few years, with everyone doing exactly what they feel like doing ...it should be interesting!
