If young adults are going to have sex either way, then why would it be logical to teach them that the only way to keep themselves safe from pregnancy and STDs is through abstinence? Stanger-Hall raises the point, “advocates for continued abstinence only education need to ask themselves: If teens don’t learn about human reproduction, including safe sexual health practices to prevent unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, as well as how to plan their reproductive adult life in school, then when should they learn about it and from whom?” (Stanger-Hall). It is important to ask why sex is portrayed as “dirty” in society when it is a necessary act. This taboo relationship that kids begin to see as normal hurts in the long run when they become too scared to ask their parents for information. Why does society continue to treat a normal human function as indecent and unfit for discussion?
When taking birth control there has to be a certain amount of trust that goes on in the relationship. A woman can say she’s taking the pill and isn’t taking it. Trust has to be built where a woman is taking the contraceptive and the man believes it. If the trust is not built both ways, it could cause psychological problems in the relationship. Psychologically birth control can be a great idea for both men and women because they are protecting themselves from an unplanned pregnancy.
For some married couples, they feel blessed that science and technology had found the way on how to avoid unwanted pregnancies. As it offers effective protection against pregnancies, they can do parenthood planning for the duration of marriage without having children especially young married couple. They may not ready to have children as the responsibility on a human’s life is not easy. They may need time to do preparation on being parents before experience it. On the other hand, most non-married couples are always hoping not to get pregnancies after doing sex.
It is only fair when applied equally for everyone. That is why the state has chose the certain age that is reasonable for the people to consent. Though the individual cases for the reasons of health and drugs would have a different outcome connecting with the laws. These laws may annoy those few minors that are capable of granting consent, but they tend to protect far more minors who think sex isn 't a big deal. Therefore Statutory rape laws should not be changes since they really help individuals that are not ready for this step to becoming a victim to rape other than few
Should parents even have rules for dating? Should parents just let their child go out on dates and do whatever the heck they want with their partner? In my opinion, I believe that in most cases there should be rules and constraints for that teen. Why? Well because teens are not the brightest in decision making.
Three key messages exist within abstinence-plus education. Unlike the repetitiveness of abstinence-only education, abstinence- plus teaches students that engaging in sexual intercourse is a big decision, according to Wilson. Another key point that falls under this approach is that abstinence is the heathiest choice. And the third and final point Wilson states is, "that teens who engage in sexual intercourse must use birth control and condoms correctly" (73). While abstinence-plus education doesn’t explicitly say chastity is the best way to live, the approach is to provide students with alternative options to keep themselves
"Also, if you are having casual sex, it's important to have regular sexual health check-ups because some STIs, such as chlamydia, don't always have symptoms. The only way to find out if you have one is to take a test." Skipping Pap tests The risks: A visit to the gynaecologist or GP isn't something most women look forward to, but delaying your Pap smear test can have serious consequences. The test is designed to pick up changes in the cervix, some of which can be due to infections or inflammation, but it can also pick up changes which could lead to cervical cancer the second most common cancer experienced by women. What to do: In addition to having a Pap test every two years, according to gynaecologist Dr Elizabeth Farrell, you can also self-examine your genitals so you know what's normal and what isn't.
Because of the many risks, abortion should be limited to help save the unborn lives and help not ruin a woman’s life forever. Abortion should not exactly be made illegal, but it should be allowed under certain circumstances such as rape. Presidential nominee Mitt Romney told CBS News that he is “in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother.” (Romney) Rape is one of the limits that abortion should tighten up on and let be legal. Another reason why abortion should be limited is because it makes health risks for the mother. “A mother’s health is an important part of their life and they can getting an abortion risks their mental and physical health.”(Mott) Risking health to get an abortion is not worth it and should not be allowed unless under certain circumstances.
It is undeniable that most college parties contain alcoholic drinks that may increase the chances of being a victim of rape. However, that does not mean there is no way for helpless individuals to determine when a date rape drug has been placed into a drink. While at George Mason University, I hope to investigate this problem and aid in discovering a better and easier way to detect date rape drugs that are unexpectedly placed in beverages. While I may not have been personally affected by this issue, it does not mean that I am not interested in the topic. Starting college is already a very scary time for most students, and I want to make the fear of rape
To prevent unwanted pregnancy in adolescents or adults, the use of birth control is not only a little pill you take every day, but a way of life. The birth control pill is a useful and beneficial medication that any women over the age of 18 can receive because it regulates their menstrual cycle, decreases unwanted pregnancy, and provides medical benefits. The birth control pill does a lot more than just prevent unwanted pregnancy. Birth control has the power to delay and regulate women’s menstrual cycles. Constantly knowing what day you are going to start your period is a relief for
