School Board Decides To Encourage Pre-Teens to Make Babies

Some teens and even pre-teens have sex and some of them get pregnant. In those cases, if you could go back in time and force the couple to use a condom, that pregnancy would have been prevented. But if you could go back in time, why not stop the pre-teens from having sex altogether? In many states (all of them?) it is illegal for pre-teens to be involved in sexual activity. This would especially be true if the girl was very young and she was seduced/pressured/raped by an older male. So, because we can imagine preventing pregnancies by condoms, some people decide that encouraging the use of condoms will discourage pregnancy. This is bad reasoning. Encouraging the use of condoms could easily encourage more sexual activity without actually getting the condoms used correctly and consistently. If people are encouraged into a life of sexual activity then they are very likely to get pregnant in a year or two even with an attempt to use condoms. So what is the Oregon School District thinking? From Reuters: “Oregon school district to offer condoms to students starting in 6th grade.”
