Posted on 11/30/2012 4:29:18 PM PST by drewh
The administration is funding a $100,000 study of pregnant and "at-risk" 14-17-year-old girls on probation in Houston, Texas, to determine ways to help them choose safer lifestyles and avoid pregnancy, including better "condom negotiation" tactics.
The National Institutes of Health, part of the Health and Human Services Department, is providing a University of Houston researcher the money because of the lack of study of female teen juveniles in trouble with the law.
The school said the study, "Choices - Teen: A Bundled Risk Reduction Intervention for Juvenile Justice Females," will include 30 at-risk girls, ages 14-17, on intensive probation with the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department.
According to the school's release, "Parrish notes one of the big issues for this population of adolescent girls is condom negotiation. They may have a boyfriend who says it isn't 'cool' to use a condom. To prepare the girls for these types of situations, the counselors and pediatricians will teach them how to negotiate condom use with their partner. The intervention also helps empower and motivate girls to make healthier choices regarding their alcohol use, smoking and prevention of unplanned pregnancy."
The goal, said the school, is to determine if intervention programs will help the kids make better life decisions.

Separate school and State now!
And we’re supposedly trying to avoid the fiscal cliff. LOL
I know its a tiny amount in the grand scheme of things but if we can’t cut that tiny amount, we are fools to expect bigger cuts.
Public sector leftist unions and their card carrying, dues paying members just adding more perversion and sickness to a dying culture/nation. I’m so nauseous that they see this as “normal” is beyond comprehension; are these the last days prophetically speaking? It sure seems like it.
Just give every girl a quarter and tell her to hold it between her knees until she is married.
why don't they spend the money teaching the boys and men how to USE a condom rather than throw another responsibility on women....
Send them to a good church and let them hear the Gospel. It's free and will 1) Save their souls and 2) Save society.
THese kids are not stupid.
They know they need to get pregnant in order to start cashing in on the handout society.
I thought the “young female voters” wanted the government and politicians, except for Slick Willie and Barry Benghazi (Prima Nocta), to stay out of their “lady parts”.
...2 kneed pressure is the Atkin Plan, right?
14 - 17 yo girls are having sex.
“They may have a boyfriend that says it isn’t “cool” to use
But I guess it’s cool to have kids that they have no intention
“14 - 17 yo girls are having sex.
Because they can.
Because they know guys are a lost cause. We know how to use them, most just don’t care.
Often times, forcing a teen to go to church has the opposite effect.
Tell the guy you won’t have sex with him unless he uses a condom.
They can have that advice free of charge.
That doesn't sound like so much until your put it into a personal perspective... for me and my family, that is about what we've paid in to the feds in taxes for the last 15 years.
So, that's what these thieves have done with all my hard earned money they have confiscated from me under penalty of prison - given immoral "classes" to underaged worthless whores? Believe me, my family could have used it a lot wiser even if we had just thrown it into the river or used it to start a campfire!
Is anybody else as outraged as I am!!??
Where's the rope?
... is it time yet, Claire...?
the left bitches you can’t stop kids having sex.
apparently though they think they can stop kids from drinking sodas and pizza at lunch.
libtard pretzel logic and screwed up priorities once again.
