Posted on 02/27/2012 11:06:18 AM PST by massmike
The California Department of Public Health has begun a program of providing free condoms by mail to children as young as twelve.
The Condom Access Project (CAP) was rolled out the week of February 14th in Alameda, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Kern and parts of San Francisco counties under the direction of the California Family Health Council. These areas were chosen, according to the STD Control Branch of the Department of Public Health, because of the high rates of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases and infections among teens in these counties.
Supporters of the program admit that while abstinence is the only sure way of preventing teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, they believe that providing more free condoms will help to decrease Californias staggering teen pregnancy and STD rates.
Across the West attempts at reducing STDs and unintended pregnancies by making condoms and other contraceptives easily available to children and teens, has not resulted in the anticipated reduction in teen pregnancy, abortion and disease.
In one case, a report on a massive sex-ed and contraceptive program carried out in Scotland and aimed at children aged ten to 18 said the initiative failed and that teen pregnancies and rates of sexually transmitted diseases continue to climb. Another study in Spain found that as contraceptive use increased, the rate of unintended pregnancy and abortion rate climbed right alongside.

California tax dollars at work...
One size fits all? Not!
Is this how a Libtard thinks? Seriously? What is next for these intellectual midgets? How about mailing out fake Driver's Licenses to children in an effort to discourage under-age drinking?
It feels like I'm taking Crazy Pills.
The California Department of Public Health by sending condoms to teenagers not just forcing these teenagers to have sex but are obstructing the creation of new life and even worse, promoting abortion.
There next step will to force all pregnant girls to digest abortion pills, even if they have to put the abortion drugs in the school lunches and municipal water supplies.
Who would hand their teenager an unmarked envelope to open?
The SAT has been “re-centered” and dumbed-down in other ways since the 70’s.
New, used, or recycled?
Well, those kids are eating those school lunches every day, anyway...
And they can start paying the SEIU Lunch-Ladies at the much higher “Nurse-Practitioner” rate. Win-Win, baby!
encouraging statutory rape with your tax dollars.
let them pay for their own raincoats, their own lunch and
their own ride to school.
Since when is any of these the responsibility of taxpayers?
I walked to school, with my packed lunch, and had no need of condoms.
Like free Korans - good conservatives should set up robo-programs to have millions of them mailed for free, then dump them somewhere obvious.
Maybe it would possible to bankrupt the system while clearly making it a public issue.
A little bit of Saul Alinsky right back at ya!
Assuming the sender is over 21, this constitutes “enticement of a minor, for illegal purposes”!
Buying and ending them out is one thing, getting them to use them is another. Maybe they need a tax credit or something for that. To get it they could have to mail the used ones back like a soda bottle deposit.
Just trying to help :)
THIS IS WRONG. THIS IS JUST SICK. MORAL DEPRAVITY!!!
Moral depravity consists in selfishness; in a state of voluntary committal of the will to self-gratification. It is a spirit of self-seeking, a voluntary and entire consecration to the gratification of self. It is selfish ultimate intention; it is the choice of a wrong end of life; it is moral depravity, because it is a violation of moral law.
Our nation is in serious decline! Where is the outrage? These are children!!! It is no wonder adult crimes are becoming more prevalent in school...another shooting incident today. Our culture that was once strong as evidenced by what our founders called TRUTHS! Not ideas, not opinions, but truths. Emphasis is mine...
“We hold these TRUTHS to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable Rights, that AMONG these are...”
“Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...”
No outrage at this government...means CONSENT!
