Why is MOST of the GOP against sex ed but for abstinence? Isn't it time to quit being so politically corect on this issue. Minors are going to have
sex, abstinence doesn't work, but even with the facts shoved in their face they still don't agree with it? If they wanted less abortions (since you
can't stop abortions all together) wouldn't it be logical to teach minors about safe sex, and the responsiblities that come along with it if you
screw up? Face it, their are alot of parents out their that will not talk to their kids about this, and alot of kids that don't want to talk to their
parents about this, I think sex ed should be required starting in 9th grade.
Just face it, their is no such thing as abstinence to the average American teen, (or any teen as a matter of fact) so they should be educated on the
consequences of unsafe sex.
And yes this should be taught in the home, but the truth is this doesn't cross alot of parents minds untill it's too late, and alot of kids just
don't want to talk to their parents about this kind of stuff. This is a very sensitive subject for alot of people, I had a brother die from AIDS last
year because he wasn't educated in this subject, my parents were the conservatives that just wouldn't talk about it.
This thread is probably going to push alot of peoples buttons but people really need to think about this.
