California counties get federally-funded teen mail-order condom program

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Teenagers in several counties can get condoms in the mail for free under a program launched this week and supported by state public health officials.

The Condom Access Project allows youth between the ages of 12 and 19 to order a package of 10 condoms, lube and health brochures online at TeenSource.org, a website run by the nonprofit California Family Health Council. The package will be mailed to them in a nondescript yellow envelope.

Supporters say the program -- aimed at reducing pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases among teens -- will benefit young people who cannot afford to buy condoms or are too embarrassed to go to clinics where they are distributed for free.

"We can't keep our heads in the sand and pretend there isn't a problem...," Vice President of Public Affairs for the Family Health Council Amy Moy told the Bakersfield Californian. "We want to make sure (teens are) as safe as possible."

Teens and young adults have the highest rates of gonorrhea and chlamydia of all age groups in California, according to health officials. In Kern County, one of the counties where the new program is available, teenage birth rates are among the highest in the state.

Yeah free.

Soon it will be against the law to be responsible for anything but paying taxes.

If they are old enough to have sex they are old enough to move out and get a job.

Its a good thing liberals aren’t using the power of government to force their beliefs down our kids throats!

Leftist stuff always seems to be funded by taxpayers.

Except that the yellow envelopes will stand out like a sore thumb.

The attack upon Western morals continues unabated and Western man is not resisting very well. Indeed, our civilization is collapsing like “a house of cards.”

This is just the government doing work the insurance companies won’t do.

Either way, we pay for it.

But, if a person under 18 wants to go to a tanning booth in California, and get a healthy dose of vitamin D, they can’t do it.

What a depraved, wacky, twisted, disgusting world this is becoming.

The medium is the message. The government's message to 12 year olds is: have sex. A government school teacher will be happy to show you the ins and outs. Don't tell your parents.

The targeted groups for government handouts do not pay taxes; they just vote Democrat.

When a guy does not even have the money to buy a condom maybe that is a sign.

It's the real thing. Just go to TeenSource.org and check it out. Might as well order your free condoms while you're there.

“Lube”? Oh, it’s another free program to encourage homosexuality.

Everyone in CA should be forced to practice birth control. They love government control of everything, don’t they?

Correct, GeronL. Socialism IS Legal Plunder. That is how they operate. The civilization is looted. It is fundamentally transformed. Lot's of innocent people die.

DEFUND socialist collectives and "government" sponsored socialism (including social engineering). Start with ANY program...this one for example.

Given the failure rate of condoms, it looks like some parents of teenagers may have a good reason for some lawsuits in 9 months.
