California govt. mailing condoms to teenagers at home in unmarked envelopes

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 California’s 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.

Meanwhile.... Adjusting for inflation, California spent $27 BILLION more on K-12 public education than they did the first time Governor Moonbeam was elected. Here’s what those who have not yet managed to escape the former Golden State have been getting for their money:

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.

The SAT has been “re-centered” and dumbed-down in other ways since the 70’s.

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!

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”!

Arrest them!

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!

Back in Boston(circa 1974) a conservative talk show guy, Avi Nelson, advocated “ Sex Stamps” for ugly,or fat,or pock-marked people, so they could get laid. Also, it would cut down on rapes, and other sex crimes. If you knew Avi(he was a personal pal of mine)you would know that it was a gag. But one caller after another called in “ Gee Avi....I’m not sure....”(or) I’m a liberal and all that, but....” (or) “I thought that you were a right wing nut, but THIS is a great idea!!”

Looks like we are almost there.......

RE: “Just trying to help :)”

You FOOL SoL. They are now liable to make that request and blame it all on “the conservative at Free Republic” who thought it was a good idea.

When oh when are you gonna either
end your sarcasm with a tag, or
simply end your sarcasm — it’s LOST on those it is aimed at.

I know it’s difficult to say what you really would like to say, but it may very well take much martyrdom before we see any real changes.

It would be interesting to see the "un-centered" scores so we could better grasp the educational decline.

LOL, yes I can dream up better ideas than even Newt.

The thought of those government workers inspecting and certifying each used and returned device brightened my day. Heck they could register each receipient genetically (without telling them of course) much like the government tracks the movement of wildlife. Think of the new policies they could come up with from that information in a data bank....and most people will tolerate anything for a rebate check...

What do you mean sarc?? :) Have I ever been known for that?

I’m sitting here reflecting on my experience with those areas of California, and those areas are the most Liberal of the State IIRC, therefore I must presume this is the result of Liberalism that Liberals are trying to “fix”.

First of all, increasing contraceptive access to younger and younger ages provably increases sexual activity more than it decreases pregnancy and STD’s.

Second, the younger the users, the greater the incidence of method failure (with condoms, the slip-rip-and-drip factor.)

Third, every STD but particularly HPV, correlates with girls having sex too young, too frequently and with too many guys.

Fourth, historically, contraceptive access does not correlate inversely with abortion and nonmarital pregnancy. They go up in tandem.

Fifth, sexualizing children directly enables sexual predators by desinsitizing kids to sexualized interactions with adults.

Sixth, would you trust the head of the California Dept. of Public Health with your car keys or your online banking password? Then why the heeking frell would you trust him with your kids?
