You Know What School Children Need? More Condoms!

Teen pregnancy rates and STD's are so rampant in Chicago that Mayor Rahm Emanuel has decided to put free condoms in the high schools. Perfect! Let's give young hormone crazed teens a false sense of security and a wink and a nod to some profoundly bad decision making.

I always get a kick out of those who argue that the country needs MORE contraception because they're the same people who quote the statistic that 98 percent of women use contraception. Well, if 98 percent of women use it, then we clearly don't need more of it.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel defended a plan to make free condoms available at 24 high schools starting next school year, expanding an effort to reduce teen pregnancy and prevent the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases among youths.

“I want everybody to understand that doesn’t mean you’re absolved either as a parent or an adult to talk to an adolescent about responsible behavior, respecting who you’re with, and doing what’s right not what’s convenient,” the mayor said.

WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports the Chicago Public Schools already have condoms available at two high schools, and will work with the Chicago Department of Public Health to identify two dozen schools to get condoms in the fall.

Chicago’s teen pregnancy rate is double that in New York City. The expanded condom distribution program will be funded by a five-year, $20 million federal grant.

The mayor said he supports the program, but said it would not replace parental guidance.

“That doesn’t absolve a parent from talking to their child about responsible behavior and respect,” he said.
Sure parents can guide their kids...but the school is going to be giving them condoms with their pizza and milk in the school cafeteria. Hope that doesn't interfere, right? (Cigarettes are still illegal on school grounds though.)

The fact is that study after study shows that increased access to contraception does NOT lead to a decrease in unintended pregnancies. In fact, the opposite is true.

The USCCB reports:
Researchers in Spain examined patterns of contraceptive use and abortions in Spain over a ten-year period from 1997-2007. Their findings, published in the journal Contraception in January 2011, were that a 63 percent increase in the use of contraceptives was accompanied by a 108 percent increase in the rate of elective abortions.10

In July 2009 results were published from an expensive three-year program at 54 sites, funded by England's Department of Health, seeking to "reduce teenage pregnancy" through, among other things, sex education and advice on access to family planning beginning at ages 13-15. "No evidence was found that the intervention was effective in delaying heterosexual experience or reducing pregnancies." Young women who took part in the program were more likely than those in the control group to report that they had been pregnant (16% vs. 6%) and had early heterosexual experience (58% vs. 33%).11

David Paton, author of four major studies in this area, has found "no evidence" that "the provision of family planning reduces either underage conception or abortion rates."12 He sums up the U.K. experience: "It is clear that providing more family planning clinics, far from having the effect of reducing conception rates, has actually led to an increase…. The availability of the morning-after pill seems to be encouraging risky behavior. It appears that if people have access to family planning advice they think they automatically have a lower risk of pregnancy."
Here's the deal, the moment they took values and prayer out of school, condoms were coming. That's the deal. If you don't have morality, you're going to have kids bouncing off each other like endorphin soaked pinballs for their own enjoyment and paying a terrible consequence for it. All the while, you'll have the mayor brilliantly tut-tutting and suggesting that this just shows we need more condoms.

I smell a rat! Served up chicago style!
Please tell me his bro, "doctor" zeke, primary author, advocate, defender and beneficiarary of obamacare, "didn't" have any influence on his brothers decision to do this? Please, tell me he had no vested interest in promoting such adverse behaviors among juvenilles, under his brothers trust, as a public servant. And please tell me, that anyone in white house, or any member of the emmanuel family is "not" exploiting this situation for social, economic or financial gain. Thanks!

Actually, I 'm bettin' they will "ALL" be billions wealthier, before obama leaves the whitehouse. At the expense of our children.

Who are the "they" who do this and that? We all are the "they." Only fifty per cent of the electorate, both Republican and Democrat, voted in the last presidential election.
School board elections, truly local, are far more important than a presidential election, and yet voting for the democratically-elected body that runs each local school district is a lonely experience. The phrase used above is "the school is going to be giving them condoms." "School" is an abstract; an adult human, hired by the school board and directed by the school board, is going to give condoms to children. And the people hire the school board.
The source of power is the people, but the people have abdicated.

This is systematic abuse of the children and adolescents - morally, psychologically, socially.

Teenagers might have sex, so let's provide condoms.
Teenagers might drink alcohol, so let's give them a six pack and a bottle of JD.
Teenagers may try marijuana, so let's give them a joint or two.
They may smoke cigarettes, so give the a. Pack of smokes.
You know. When entering HS, students should get a care package of condoms, alcohol, tobacco and marijuana. All the things they are likely to try. Let's not stop them, but show them how to use them properly. Maybe a joint rolling class and a how to drive after a few beers section of drivers ed.

Condoms do not protect against any virus, not HIV/aids, herpes, even the cancer virus. I have heard that the condoms are sabotaged with tiny pin holes. The insert used to say to test the condom by filling it with water to test for leaks.It is safer to play in traffic. Will public schools next tell our children to play in traffic?

What ever happened to the laws against statutory rape. "If you love me" we will not use the condoms. God and prayer and values and respect. Taxpayers money wasted without representation. Put it on the ballot. Even the condom in the picture has a pin hole. Does this prevent lawsuit?
