San Francisco weighs giving condoms to middle schoolers

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco’s public schools leaders are considering distributing condoms at middle schools.

The San Francisco Examiner reports Monday that the policy change was introduced as part of an overall effort by the San Francisco Unified School District to further prevent sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy among minors. A board committee is scheduled to discuss the proposal Monday.

The board first adopted a policy to distribute condoms at high schools in 1991, and in 1996 the board amended the district’s condom distribution program to allow parents to opt out or exclude their child from the program, the newspaper reported.

In addition to supplying condoms at middle schools, the superintendent’s recommended changes include eliminating the exemption option for parents. Parents would still be notified annually about the program.

    Nothing like subtlety telling kids to do as their urges to od as they please instead of teaching them abstinence and respect for themselves and their friends.

    Once they start with the act of having sex, the lack of a raincoat for Richard…isn’t gonna stop ’em!

    Pay attention people, this is usurping the parents rights and responsibilities and giving them directly to the government. This is a progressive march to government raised children. Taking the parents out of the loop of responsibility is making things worse not better. The more removed and less involved the parents are the more likely they will give up their responsibility and involvement to the government. We have already lost the last 20 or more years to liberal doctrine where young people do not know how the government works or how it was established, or what personal responsibility for their own actions is about. They genuinely do not understand rights and liberties and have little or no idea what the constitution is let alone what it requires of our citizens.
