I'm conservative, and I think good sex education, and information for teens on how to avoid STD's should be taught to everyone of appropriate age.

Plan for it or pay for it.

"There's no good reason" to disagree with the recommendation, the San Francisco Chronicle asserts. But there are actually plenty of them.

Besides being deeply insulting to the dignity of adolescents, this approach exposes the reality that when we talk about sex, we all too often put good health and sense aside. "Women's health" routinely assumes promiscuity, whatever the age, despite...
