    Birth control

    I am for educating young women about birth control, including abstinence, but not excluding traditional birth control like pills, condoms, iuvs, etc... I think it would help reduce disease, unwanted pregnancies, and abortions. I don't think there is anything wrong with teaching abstinence in a balanced program, but everything should be included.

    why not educate men on putting on a condom. If all men wore condoms the abortion rate would drop by 90% tomorrow. Women would also not have to take pills that are a danger. Read the side of a pill box. Teach a man to pull on a condom and perhaps you would have something. Why is it the woman's responsibility? Yeah men get a pass when a condom does them no harm. Read a birth control box and see the warning label. Yet your focus is on them. sorry.

    All good ideas at age appropriate levels. Additionally, the costs, hazards and responsibilities of being a parent should also be taught. Making Home Ec 101 a mandatory class for all HS students would also gear them to start thinking like adults instead of libidinous children.

    That's a good point. I didn't mean to be unfair, and I would definitely want to see both young men and young women educated on this topic.

    Agreed, school should add some more "real life" education, as opposed to a ton of generalized theory.

    When I was in seventh grade (around 1983), we saw an animated Disney film about sexually transmitted diseases. No joke.

    Of course the way to go is to give the the honest, brutal truth. Teach about forms of birth control, and don't just stop there. Tell the horror stories of sexually transmitted disease. The real consequences of how much work and money and effort it is to raise a child. Get graphic, and really show the consequences of having irresponsible sex.

    Well, sex is so much better without a condom. Isn't that even the case for women also? And many times the women allows the man to not wear a condom or gives in to them saying they don't want one.

    With all the medical device technology, I'm surprised there isn't a small device that can act like a vasectomy. A device that can keep the vas deference closed keeping sperm from the ejaculate, and when that person is ready to have a kid, if ever, they can go to doctor and have it opened electronically. Seems feasible, as there already are tiny medical devices and ways to manipulate them externally. Hell of a lot better than the side effects of the pill and actually getting snipped. And much less invasive than having something stop the release of egg.

    I'm actually surprised that with all the technological and medical breakthroughs, there hasn't been much new in the form of birth control. THat is 100% and doesn't take away from sex.

    I understand that. When i speak of condom use it is the simplest form of protection. Not only does it protect from unwanted pregnancy but also against STD's. It is not harmful as is female birth control tablets. The use of condoms even at worst case would prevent probably 90% of pregnancies. That certainly would slow the abortion rate,
