1)yeah, you did say so. Which means you must not have kids. I simply needed reassurance that this was not a sarcastic statement.

I do and I would hope that when the time comes that our relationship is open enough so that they can come to me and not the school nurse. If it isn't and they feel more comfortable going to the school nurse then maybe that's my fault.


2)We arent talking about 16+ year olds. we are talking about 13 year olds. You think it is a dumb law that it is illegal to have sex with a 13 year old?

Yes, if it is with another 13 year old.


3)You must be very young, if you dont see the develop,mental difference between someone who is 21 and someone who is 16, let alone someone who is 13.

Actually I'm am far from young. What amazes me is that the difference in maturity between a 30 year old and a 17 year old seems to vanish once the 17 year old turns 18. Well it doesn't, but laws are written so that the line is drawn somewhere but this may not apply in a particular case.


again, noone here is talking about a 17 and 18 year old. We are talking about adults and young children. Adults injected children. it is as much a violation as an adult coercing a child into sex. The child has NO way to know what to consent to. In fact, they are straight up coerced. An adult they trust is telling them that its ok to get the jab. so they do.

It is predatory behavior. Just as having sex with a 13 year old is.

And really, if you think a 13 year old having sex with a 13 year old is ok, i pity your child.

what you need to understand is.

it isn't about wether or not your children feel comfortable telling you such things.

the thing is...

NOBODY should be able to do ANYTHING to your child without you KNOWING or CONSENTING to certain things.

Isn't it better that they are able to get birth control that they may not get otherwise if they had to go through their parents?


underlining mine.
you presume something to make your point.

if the kids can't get contraception at home it's the parents fault.
for not living in this day and age and not having an open relationship with their children.

but nobody NEVER EVER should be allowed to implant anything in your kids without your knowledge or consent.

Your overreacting. If it was like sex then it wouldn't be legal even with your consent.

Whatever I think isn't going to change the fact that it happens.

Yes, I agree it is not correct to put in these implants without the parent's permission.

HOWEVER...

I imagine that WITH a parent's permission, these types of more reliable birth control methods would offer women of all ages, a better CHOICE.

A real choice I believe for women will be deciding WHEN not having to decide what to do IF.

Peace.

Absolutely gross!

Can't vote, can't buy a beer, can't legally work.....................................but here, we're going to put this apparatus into your arm and it's ok.

This actually makes me feel ill.

Adults inject kids with drugs all the time for their health and the kids have no say if they want these vaccines, do you have a problem with that?

I don't think kids should be having sex, I blame the parents, but if the kids are doing it , which they are, shouldn't they be provided protection and birth control? Do we need more unwanted babies? How would you feel if the school was handing out condoms?

when are you going to get it...

NO.

because those parents made that deliberate choice THEMSELVES.

nobody went sneaking around behind their back to implant something in their kids.

did i say so?

but that's a problem the parents have.

they didn't build an open enough relationship with their kids.

i know it's possible because i just might have the greatest mom and dad in the world, i can litteraly talk to them about anything.

but again mate.

that's not the point.

the point is that some kids get implanted with devices without the knowledge or consent of their parents.

that's a disgrace.

stick to the main issue here.

would you be ok if someone injected or implanted something in your kids without you knowing?

Already answered that with a yes. You just don't get it that the kids went around their parent's back because they would never allow it anyway.

well excuse me for saying.
i´m glad i´m not one of your kids.

another assumption of yours to make your point.
your point is moot.

Didn't you say that kids can't comprehend what they are being injected with? Maybe it wasn't you? They arent being forced these implants are they? At least it's a choice. At what age is someone able to make a decision without their parents consent? 14,15,15.5? When they get a drivers license? Buy alcohol ? Join the military?

How would you feel about distributing condoms?

Hypothetical question would you rather have your child come home pregnant or tell you she was sexually active and was on birth control/using protection?

yes that was me and i stand by that opinion.
most 13 year olds (i know) aren't capable of overseeing the consequences of their decission at that point.
at that age something is either black or white, right or wrong, hot or cold.



They arent being forced these implants are they?


nope



At least it's a choice
.

their parents should make.

everyone reaches maturity at his or her own rate.
the parents should guide their kids.




after reading all the replies so far i've started to appreciate my parents a hell of a lot more. (i did already.. but still)
let me rephrase that because i'm not insunuating anyone is a bad parent.

i have a lot of respect for the WAY my parents raised me.

You say their parents should make the choice for them. That's great you
Think you kids wouldn't have sex behind your back and keep things secret. I'm sure you're a great parent but what about the kids that don't have good parents and would keep it secret , shouldn't the option be there?

seriously mate.

for the third time, that's NOT the point.

i wouldn't be mad at my daughter for taking the implant.

(but that wouldn't be the case because i know how to talk to kids)

but i would be FURIOUS at the school and professionals for not informing me as a parent.

i would raise freaking hell.

and that's the point here mate.

but we're bickering over the same thing here.

i DON'T agree with schools performing such practices without the consent of the parents.

you obviously DO agree with this because of.......... (fill in hypothetical situation here)

I got you, and my only point is if the schools told the parents a lot of kids probably wouldn't take it and still have sex.

I would think that any investigation at all into who implemented this program would reveal a sordid life indeed. Perhaps even a personal reason that is being actively covered up. Local PI should dig.

This is wrong - plain and simple. There are social boundaries that state should be allowed to break only in extreme cases and relationship between parent and kid are those boundaries.
Unless parents are violent and abusive or worse (and those are extreme cases) , they are responsible for their kids and it is their and their child's decision. Medicating teens without not only approval but without knowledge of people who are ultimately responsible for them is unacceptable.
How about legal solutions to make it stop?

Your words. Why would this not include the kid?
