    And that is your opinion. You cannot prove that so it is subjective.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    They already get them for free. I work at a WalMart and trust me, that is one of the top theft items in the store......along with pregnancy test!!!

    Not all teenagers are thieves.

    And making them available at school would then likely have an additional bonus of reducing the theft of condoms from stores. Unless it is really adults stealing them, and not teenagers at all.

    They can buy them or they can jerk off.

    No ****s will be given.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Making them available at school, especially when at least some are donated or paid for through other means, helps reduce pregnancy rates and STD rates within those schools that have started the program.

    It cost much less to provide condoms for free to students than to support them having a child at that age or to pay for their meds/treatment when they get an STD/HIV. The cost savings are enough to justify it.

    If they are too god damned stupid to not use one, or too ****ing lazy or cheap to go out and buy them..... then they deserve to deal with that ****.

    Allow them to buy them in stores.
    Encourage them to use them.
    But if you think you are setting teens up for success by giving out free condoms in school based on the false premise that they won't go out and buy their own because they are too dumb........ thats just stupid.


    And im not arguing this due to some sort of "OH NOES ITS GOING TO ENCOURAGE TEENS TO ****" aspect.


    I find this idea an extension of the bull**** "coddling" of teens that keeps on and keeps on in America. Quit coddling teens and let them face reality, they earned it.
