The option of condoms being distributed in high schools needs to be implemented as soon as possible.
By providing condoms in high school it would give protection against pregnancy and STDs to otherwise at risk teens.
The best thing to do to successfully reduce these indicated risks is to stop trying to drill abstinence is the only way into teenager’s heads.
One thing teenagers cannot stand is someone telling them what they should do; therefore, just educate them on every means of protection.
Would providing teens with condoms in high school decrease the risk of pregnancies, sexual transmitted diseases, and emotional turmoil?
Providing teens with condoms will greatly decrease the risk of pregnancies and sexual transmitted diseases.Not only is abstinence taught but it also covers contraceptive and disease-prevention methods like condom use.If it were taught in high school than the teens would be well aware about prevention that needs to be taken care of if sexually active and the consequences of sex when protection is not used and even with a condom in use.If they are educated well enough on all possible options, teens are very capable of making good decisions even though such things are supposedly influencing them.People who are against the idea of allowing teenagers to have full access to condoms because it is morally unacceptable need to realize that some teens could care less about if sex is morally just or not.Instead of thinking about all the consequences, more and more teens are becoming sexually active without completely understanding the precautions that need to be taken when doing so.Providing teens with the option of using a condom without question would greatly decrease these risks.Teens that are sexually active will have sex with or without a condom so providing teens with condoms at total confidentiality would make most teens feel comfortable enough to make the responsible decision to use one.Some people will argue that distributing condoms to high school teens is misleading and will give the impression to teens that it is okay to be sexually active as long as you are using protection.If teens are educated well enough on all the options that are available than teens are capable of making the right decisions even with the media and peer pressure influencing them.Some people are against giving teenagers full access to condoms because they feel that it is morally unacceptable.
