This sort of policy gives students a very warped view of sex. The message they learn is that sex is safe and that early sex with multiple partners is normal and healthy. Nobody warns them of the dangers. And boys learn to see girls as sex objects. It’s ironic that the people pushing contraception in middle schools are often the same people crying about a so-called “rape culture” on college campuses. It’s difficult to remove morality at age 12 and think you can reinstate it when kids are age 18.
Passing out condoms and providing IUDs show that both schools and parents have failed to protect these children. You don’t protect youngsters from pregnancies and STDs by passing out condoms; you protect them by teaching them morals. Having sex at age 13 is damaging to a child even if they don’t get pregnant or sick, and schools and parents should be preventing condom use, not encouraging it. Since schools seldom warn parents about these policies, or even give them advance notice, parents, you might want to check out what’s being passed out at your local school.
