The justification for offering Birth Control to high school students is that they "are going to do it anyhow;" the birth control helps keep them from actually conceiving, and supposedly promotes "safe sex." Opponents to this birth control, though, feel that this actually '''promotes''' sexual activity among high school students. They disagree with the notion that "they're going to do it anyhow." Providing birth control at the high school can also keep the parents uninformed about the sexual activity of their children; this can be bad or good, depending on the parents' attitude.

Should birth control be given out in school?

Yes and No. Yes. Young people tend to make mistakes - like getting pregnant. Anything that adults can do to keep them from ruining their lives is welcome. Kids who don't use condoms need all the help they can get. No. Teen minds work differently than adult minds. When teens receive birth control, they begin to think that sex is okay, as long as it's safe. In many households, people are taught to wait till marriage, so the schools could in some cases teach differently. Birth control and condoms should be passed out only with parent approval. If birth control is not given with permission, schools could receive complaints.
