With the rise of abortions, the possibility of politics dictating the future of free clinics like Planned Parenthood, and a spike in STD’s, sex education in schools is a hot topic. Just like other topics taught in school, sex education should be developmentally appropriate, sequential and complete, but the debatable question is what does this look like. There are some school districts that are starting sex education as early as elementary school. And with all that children are exposed through the internet, tv, and social media at such an early age, do you blame them?
On one side of the argument you have those who believe if you teach kids about sex it will encourage them to want to have it. The other side feels the exact opposite. In fact a study done by the Obama Administration in order to support his push for comprehensive sex education in schools suggests that in comparison to those who received abstinence-only education “teens who received comprehensive sex education were 50% less likely to experience pregnancy, 40% likely to delay sexual initiation, 30% more likely to reduce the frequency of having sex, and 60% likely to reduce the amount of unprotected sex.”
According to the National Campaign to End Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, 95% of all Americans have sex before marriage, and 2 of every 4 kids under the age of 17 are sexually active. It’s no wonder why there is such a rise in STD’s, abortions, and the serious crime of trash dumping babies. According to the Department of health 1 in 4 teens contract a sexually transmitted disease each year, and less than 50% of them have ever been tested. According to a research study done in New York city, there were more African American babies killed (31k) by abortion in 2012 than were born (24k). More and more stories of babies that were left to die in a dumpster are being discovered.
It appears that there needs to be some better education on preventions, protection, and of options after conception. Many school districts are starting to teach sex education as early as kindergarten. Discussions around the proper names for their body parts, what a “good touch” versus a “bad touch” is. It is their belief that in order for kids to grow into healthy sexually active adults the education needs to be real, comprehensive and open. Teaching about abstinence has only helped the 5% of folks who actually wait until marriage. What are your thoughts? Do you think kids should be taught about sex ed at an early age?
