    Look, you shepherd the "Free Love" movement, and we'll take care of the rest.

    I'm saying that if you're to weak to discipline your kids, then someone has to usher in the consequences. Besides, the State takes them away all the time.

    Out.

    It has been a hot 103 degree day again! Texas needs rain badly! Maybe the Eastern US could share some?

    Be well.

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.
    /end thread.

    If someone wants or needs something it is their duty and their job to make sure they get it. I realize people always have some sort of benefit that comes about from giving people free things, but the gains are always the entire reason they are supposed to be motivated to get it themselves.

    The same argument for public schools can be applied here. We find as a society that not having teen pregnancies like having a well educated population greatly benefits society. Schools also bring up another topic that being good comprehensive sex education.

    Should society not try to improve itself? It's in your personal best interest aswell the tax burden to buy condoms in far less than the amount of money to support the child in the welfare system the most likely in the criminal system. What benefits society ultimately benefits you as a part of society.

    In the real world " hell yes. " There's enough babies in this world with parents who can't take of them.

    Umm...isn't that the whole point of giving free condoms? To prevent those kids that are not able to raise kids, which includes financially, from having kids?

    That never included condoms as I recall. Kids having sex was never spoken openly and rarely privately at the time such things that you talk about were expected.
