Philadelphia high schools to welcome students back with free condom dispensers
yahoo ^ | 12.25.2012 | Daily Caller

Posted on 12/25/2012 6:30:35 PM PST by Morgana

The Philadelphia Health Department will install clear plastic dispensers brimming with free condoms at 22 of Philadelphia’s public high schools over winter break.

The schools chosen for the pilot program have the highest rates of students infected with sexually transmitted diseases in the city, Philly.com reports. All students — even those as young as 14 — will be eligible to score free condoms unless their parents sign a form prohibiting them from participating.

The primary issue city officials hope to address with the pilot program is not teen pregnancy, but the growing prevalence of sexually transmitted disease among adolescents.

Teens currently account for a quarter of new HIV infections and STDs in the City of Brotherly Love.

“I support the policy strongly,” Mayor Michael A. Nutter told Philly.com. “This is a serious public health matter.”

Yea, but a free Bible dispenser would be not tolerated.

This alludes to the reason why “free health care” is such an important issue for young people. The pervasive presence of STDs. Rarely mentioned in the MSM because it is problematic for their agenda but a significant health issue nonetheless.

When I was a 20-something in the 60s, nobody that age gave a rat’s @ss about health care.

Perhaps someone can go to the district attorney and file a criminal complaint for “contributing to the delinquency of minors” and the local version of “immorality with minors”.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

Translation: the strongest students will extract all the free condoms as soon as they are stocked and sell them to a local bodega in exchange for malt liquor.

That is not what even worries me.

Remember that surgeon general, what was her last name? Elders? The one that said something about every baby should be wanted? Well before she was surgeon general she did something like this in her school system but Rush later said the condoms were sub standard and the kids got pregnant using them.

History has a way of repeating itself.

A Statement By Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders :

.... First of all.. I want to thank the President.. for the opportunity I have had over the last two years.. to serve the people of the United States.. particularly, the children. And even though I will be leaving this post, I will continue to fight for the children.. and for their basic, medical and sexual needs. As I have said, time and time again.. if masturbation is not taught in the home, then it must be taught in the schools!

again with the opt-out instead of the opt-in... and just exactly how will parents know about the program to opt-out of it???

Any day of the week?

Do Varsity players get more per time period?
After all, they are (deservedly) busier.

Are large sizes available?

Opt out? Oh please chode! They will just get one from a buddy who’s parents did not opt out. Even I have not been in the convent that long.

In many areas of this country the teen pregnancy rate is sickeningly high. Some studies show that 34% of females will have at least one pregnancy before they are 20.

The lefts answer to this problem is to give out condoms. Of course that involves teaching children how to use them. Complete with the use of bananas and cucumbers for practice. The children still probably won’t use the condoms.

The left won’t teach kids abstinence or allow any morals. Instead they teach them to have homosexual sex and push promiscuity.

Truly sickening and its a lot larger then a few stupid condom dispensers paid for with tax dollars.

I think it’s a great idea for Detroit ,Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington DC.

The country will be a better place when the denizens of these particular cities have fewer children.

Face it these cities are the Capitols of murder, less breeding, less citizens, less murders.

Kids need to be told NO

If they are old enough for sex they are old enough to move out and get jobs and take care of themselves

This works for me!
First of all, who on earth gives a rat’s behind about Philadelphia schools? Second, anything short of abortion that can maybe reduce the number of welfare litters spawned by Philadelphia school girls can’t be a bad thing.

I wonder if they’re ribbed condoms with receptacle ends?

third rate condoms are not the answer. Getting them to stop having sex would reduce their numbers.

That’s right. Ever since the kings of Israel and Magna Carta. But we live in “transformational” times: morality and ethics transforming into debauchery and deceit, and liberty into a nation of sheep.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

“Opt out”? Let’s call it what it is: RANSOM or JIZA

It is still possible to opt a kid out of the government temples of atheistic humanist secularism ( Oops! “schools”). It is called private or home schooling but at an extra price.
