    Improper use of birth control causes those things, and abstinence only education doesn't teach students how to use birth control, or give them a proper education about sex. Keeping students in the dark isn't the way to go.
    If sex education stops this when does that happen since we seem to be getting worse every year

    Not teaching abstinence at all will encourage more sex and it will get even worse

    Not if they are cheap UN rubbers. They are not 100% and their will still be problems. So you want to promote teenage sex that will lead to an even more perverted society than we have now

    Personally I think we should, it doesn't provide our kids with a proper sex education, and doesn't prepare them for the real world. I also think that sex education should include information on LGBT issues, and I think that our schools should offer condoms to our students with no questions asked.
    I think we should leave it to parents.
    This is a mommy/daddy area.

    I don't think school should teach sex Ed at all. It's a parents job to teach their kids what's what.

    See this is your problem. You see sex as something nasty, and perverted. Which it is not. It's something everybody does, and is normal, and healthy human behavior and we need to give our youth the knowledge to protect themselves from the dangers that having sex can cause. I'm all for teaching abstinence, but we should also give them a comprehensive sex education as well so that they have all the knowledge possible so that won't get a STI, or have an unwanted pregnancy.

    I would like it if the virtue of abstinence were discussed more, at the same time that some concession to reality be made. Even a myth of abstinence is a useful myth to have.

    I would agree, but political reality and public health statistics take away that nice ideal. It places the education system in a lose-lose situation, but it is still necessary.

    It seems very strange to find someone who claims to be Very liberal using terms like:"normal, and healthy human behavior" when talking about sex because liberals have what many might say is a perverted view of what is: "normal, and healthy human behavior" when sex is the subject.

    Most Liberals either don't know or choose to ignore Genesis 19. The Depravity of Sodom tha6 begins: "The two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed down with his face to the ground. 2He said, ‘Please, my lords, turn aside to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you can rise early and go on your way.’ They said, ‘No; we will spend the night in the square.’ 3But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; 5and they called to Lot, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, so that we may know them."

    And so I skip ahead to: Genesis 24 "Then the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrah sulphur and fire from the Lord out of heaven; 25and he overthrew those cities, and all the Plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground."

    I don't condemn anyone nor do I hate them I hate the sins of man not the sinner.

    My intent is to show that Christians who believe in and follow the word will have a different view of what "is normal, and healthy human behavior."

    As far as teaching our children I believe that even when someone trys to tell the truth about sex they fail to tell the truth about what it means and actually feels like by somehow trying to frighten them away rather than being honest but also include the proper knowledge to protect them from the pit falls and dangers of unprotected sex and the danger of sex with people we don't really know anything about.

    The same is true when it comes to drug use. Children are lied to about the false dangers of pot and if they try it they are more likely to think Hell they lied to me about pot, did they lie to me about coke and heroin and that is what leads some to believe that pot is a gateway drug.

    It's not the pot, it's the lies we tell that lead to addiction. Trust me I know this to be a solid fact.

    I have never done any illegal drug past pot but I am imminently versed in what it is to be addicted to legal drugs legally obtained for real medical conditions.

    No. We need more workers to help social security out. As abstinence only leads to higher pregnancies, that will help solve our entitlement problems. If you haven't caught on, this is sarcasm.
