Tax payers fund planned parenthood to the tune of 500million per year.

There is a bigger issue at play then whether or nor BC is handed out in our schools.

Any sane person would be hard pressed to argue that pregnant teenagers running around is a good idea. I also believe that most sane people agree that it is the parents responsibility to teach their kids to be responsible. Whether or not parents in general are smart enough to teach their kids to be responsible is irrelevant.

The bigger issue is the entitlement mentality that is removing from an entire generation (or 3) the human ability to learn from mistakes. Yes it is tragic when unwed teenagers have babies. Yes it is a drain on society, tax dollars, welfare, WIC etc programs. But those are short term pills to swallow compared to the generations to come who have become accustomed to the Government granting them their every need and desire.

As a race, we do not gain knowledge by avoiding hardship. We gain knowledge via failure. For the sake of humanity, lets not attempt to eliminate failure.

Some women have died from taking the pill. Rushed to the hospital and bleed out uncontrolable. Doctors could not stop the bleeding.

I don't care if they are dropping birth control supplies from parachutes, I am going to do my best to keep my girls from getting knocked up before they get the fukc out of my house. I am teaching them responsibility for their actions and punishing them if they screw up. They are 6 and 8 respectively and I've already explained how the plumbing works. I will repeat this talk as many times as neccessary. All I can do is teach them how everything works and how boys operate. I know they are going to become sexually active in their teens so I want to make sure they understand and use protection. I am not giving my consent for genital recreation but merely guiding them so they make intellegent choices.

A 100% success rate is an oddity.

Half of me wishes they would norplant everyone until you prove capable of supporting your off spring. The other half of me thinks the government should stay out of it. I think things would change in a quick minute if the government stopped supporting unplanned offspring.

Especially since the poor and those who make poor life choices tend to multiply at a much higher rate than responsible people.

Won't giving them birth control lead to them having more sex at say 14? Hence leading to more teenage mothers. You know they are just going to keep screwing until something happens if there are no consequences with this pill.

Not to get off topic but the big soda companies are currently fighting the drink thing in court btw. I imagine the state will side with baseball parks and the regulation of beer or something along those lines. Total bs. I am already paying almost $1.50 for a freaking 20 oz. The calorie thing at the fast food places I like though.


Personally I don't like the "drug" side of any kind of "control" everyone is freaking different. Check out March of dimes or Bethany christian centers sometime. The amount of preemies is staggering enough to make anyone second guess having a child. If kids are going to get pregnant after a month of screwing at least let it be one that was not a opps which will require constant medical care due to the drugs used before and in the early stages.
Screw the idiot kids, and the effects on them. The concern lies in the next generation. Ever wonder why so many babies are currently born with down syndrome? Yep, it involves "control".

It is bad enough most of the kids in school are already coked up on pills to seem "normal". Do we really need to be introducing another "fix it all" pill.

Latex or Duck Tape. Hand them out like vouchers and hope the kids use them.

I guess my line of thinking is the gal had sex and thought that the morning after pill will prevent an unplanned pregnency. What was going through her mind when all this happened shortly after taking the pill? It was suppose to stop pregnency not kill her.
Maybe the company did not enough testing on thier product, not to say this type of pill is a good thing anyway.

Maybe it all comes down to parental intervention and abstenence on the minor children and not giving them the go ahead to and suffer the consequences if and when things go south.
It;s like giving a child a loaded gun and telling them to be carful. You know something bad is going to happen.

So, it's ok for parents to teach proper gun control but not sex control? Kinda a double standard there.

No they are supposed to teach both. Unfortunately they don't always do that, that's why its important that these options be available in schools. My parents literally taught me nothing about sex, so I learned everything from porn and jean auel novels. Seriously.

Duh stupid. My point was there is risk in everything you do. There was a 1% chance I wouldn't survive my knee surgery but the benefits outweighed the rusk.

Sexually mature kids already have a "loaded gun". Birth control is an attempt to replace the bullets with blanks.
