Comprehensive sex education is mostly trying to stop the spreading of sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancies. The class does teach that abstinence is the best way of making 100 percent sure a person does not get pregnant or get a sexually transmitted disease. They spend more of the class teaching about protection and contraceptives. Abstinence by itself is another way of teaching that can prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancy. The teaching of abstinence is telling people to not have sex until marriage.
Condoms would therefore be the most effective way to prevent pregnancies and the spread of diseases and it would be inexpensive for schools to provide. (Reising 2-3). Although these aspects positively affect teens, some people think it will increase people into having sex. Negative aspects of this controversy is that it may encourage sexual activity in teens. With condoms being available at school, many people expect that there will be sexual activity among teens and that peer pressure will be used to push people into more
They have the notion that it is used for protection against unwanted pregnancy, when there are many other benefits. In the book Dr. Spock’s Baby and Child Care, Dr. Spock states, “Does sex education encourage sex? Many parents are afraid that talking about sex with their teenagers will be taken as permission for the teen to have sex. Nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, the more children learn about their sexuality from talking with their parents and teachers and reading accurate books, the less likely they feel compelled to find out for themselves” (2004).
When a teenager feels he or she is ready for sexual intercourse they may be ashamed or afraid of entering a store to purchase contraceptives or condoms and they may fair that if they confront their parent about this, their parents may become disappointed in them or may even become angry with them. So they take the chance of having unprotected sex with their partners. They may feel that because it’s the first time having sex for both partners, they are not unable to contracted any STDS or even conceive a child. Offering condoms in schools helps to educate the students on safe sex practices. It helps them to become more aware of the dangers of unsafe sex, and also help them to make the right sex choices when it comes to sex.
Demetrius Crouch Honors English 3 Mrs. Beveridge April 14, 2013 HIV/AIDS: Abstract HIV/AIDS is a disease that anyone that is practicing unsafe sex or sharing needles can contract. From children, to teenagers, to adults, it is important to take the proper precautionary measures to protect yourself from it. This is a disease that currently has no known cure, but there are very good treatments that will slow down the growth of the virus so that you will live longer. This disease used to have a very negative reputation, but over time people have come to be more compassionate about the situation. Programs have been created to try and stop the spread of this disease and many other diseases around the world.
Q) “Fertility Treatment is never justified.” Discuss (10 Marks) Fertility Treatment is the use of medicine and medical procedures to help infertile couples who want children, have children. Fertility Treatment is allowed in the UK as it is viewed as a fundamental desire to want to have children and thus we should help couples who are having trouble conceiving to conceive. However some thinkers would argue that this is wrong and should not be allowed. Natural Law thinkers are set well against Fertility Treatment. They have many issues with processes such as IVF as masturbation to gain the sperm used in IVF is viewed as a misuse of the genitals.
Next, it will present how the reality counseling theory would be most effective in treating rape victims and how this treatment can be applied. Lastly, it will consider the secular and the Christian perspective approaches to rape treatment, with a detailed look at William Glasser’s reality therapy. How Effective is the Reality Theory When Treating Victims of Rape? Date rape is a misunderstood crime not only because of its social stigma, but because it is such a difficult crime to prosecute. Often people who hear the term date rape will dismiss the seriousness of the crime believing it was consensual because they perceive that the victim had an attraction to the person since they agreed to the date.
Abstinence is not the key to sexual education. The facts are most children are already experimenting and trying new things all the time: “By the age of 19, 70% of teens have engaged in sexual intercourse at least once” (Crary). It has been proven that abstinence does not and will never work; “The United States leads the world in teen pregnancy rates. Compared to France, the US numbers are more than tripled” (Jackson). The reason the United States is leading in teen pregnancy rates is because of the abstinence only program taught in schools.
As an alternative, some schools also now offer comprehensive education. This approach offers and provides more insight on sex education in which one can be better prepared for real life situations such as std’s and unwanted pregnancies. Although both these methods of teaching offer insight on sex education, it has been proven that they are not as successful as one may think. Sex among teens, as well as teen pregnancies, is at an all time high verifying that “teenage pregnancy has a lot more to do with what it means to be a teenager than with how someone gets pregnant” (Quindlen 297). Suggesting that sex is more of an ethical issue, sex education is merely facts built upon foundations that have already been instilled in teens.
