    No, female teenagers, particularly those who are socially identifiable as a high-risk for teenage pregnancy, should be encouraged to take a shot of Depo, or some other long-acting birth control agent, at scheduled intervals.

    Free - from whom? The government? Absolutely not *free* from the government: having an active sex life comes with the responsibility of paying for your own protection. If you're a teen, you're still living at home with your parents - and you're they're responsibility, not Uncle Sam's.

    Option C does not exist.
    condones are easily available, like a can of coke.

    Why is it the government job to give people what they need or want? I don't happen to find that welfare in this form or any other form is an improvement. In this example, all it appears to do is shift responsibility from the target, to the people around the target. I have no responsibility to make sure these children use condoms or have condoms in their possession. I have no reason to consider what they want or need something that I must concern myself with. If the kids need condoms they can either get down to the store and buy themselves some or get mommy and daddy to give them some. I have no reason to be involved in it.

    Don't disagree. They're also pretty cheap. Too many kids still won't use them, though.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    They can use Ziplock bags and crudely fashioned tape.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    Just give them balloons. They can make balloon animals with them and use them for condoms.

    No...they cost like about $1 each.

    What teenager in America cannot afford $1?


    They should be easy for teenagers to get...but giving them away is not necessary.

    Is it a waste? It's a drop in the bucket compared to paying for unplanned kids.

    Worrying about a few dollars relative to the much larger amounts of money that would be spent otherwise is foolish. Plus, lack of full and absolute success shouldn't be an excuse for discarding partial success.
