    If abstinence is left out you are condoning sex

    Sorry? Big surprise here. It is okay to have sex. Preferable to wait until one is more emotionally mature; but most often when we start having sex is predicated on hormones, parental involvement, and a host of other considerations. If your way is to teach them it's NOT okay to have sex, then I don't like your way at all.

    Just because 16-year-olds have sex doesn't make them perverts and whores. That attitude is just plain scarey.

    No it's not. And when is sex such a bad thing? It's something EVERYONE thinks about, and does.

    WE are talking about minor children. We have to many teen pregnancies. We have teen sexting. We have date rape. But we should stop abstinence teaching

    And teenagers have a sex drive, you can't ignore it. And those teen pregnancies, and STI's are because of abstinence only sex education, which is still taught in alot of school districts. We need to turn to a more comprehensive sexual education, so that we can prepare our kids, to deal with their sexual desires, and how to best protect themselves when they choose to act on those desires.

    Yes. There are no options and that is not realistic for sexually developing people. BUT, they MUST be made aware fo the seriousness of pregnancy and that they are RESPONSIBLE for their actions.

    Abstinence should be taught along with sex education. In fact, abstinence should be encouraged.

    One can only hope that they are responsible enough to have an abortion.
