Comprehensive sexual education is the education plan that teaches topics such as, but are not limited to: human sexuality, puberty, reproductive anatomy, and sexual health. 2. Abstinence-only education, on the other hand, is the sex education method that teaches teens sex should be refrained from until marriage. II. 1st paragraph: Studies done in the University of Georgia show the importance of sex education in a macro scale of just the US, but other research has been done on a micro scale in Memphis, Tennessee that other angles like economics must also be taken into account as to what the consequences are of no sex education or abstinence-only education.
Giver Questions By Jai Amin Period 3 Chapters 6-15: 1. Why must Jonas start taking pills and when will he be able to stop? Why does this occur when it does? Jonas had to start taking pills to prevent and “cure” the “stirrings.” Furthermore, based on Jonas’s age the “stirrings” is just the beginning of puberty. A theory to why the community instructs any kids who begin to have stirrings to take pill to “cure” it is that puberty could ruin their “perfect” society.
Some young adults may already be trespassing places they are not suppose to be and this specific example will teach young adults about thinking smarter and about following the laws. If Luis and Tino never passed the gate, Tino would have been still alive. Another sensitive, detailed topic that Luis Rodriguez describes is about sex. “The penis sank into the bristle of pubis, then slid into the oil vagina, covering it in flesh and juice and rhythm of pelvis” (Rodriguez, 128). This detail is very descriptive, and is another reason teen pregnancy is happening.
Increasing drugs and alcohol can make them feel like nothing is going on but when they are sober again everything will all come back eventually. Prokop says “Talking about wanting to die” page 1 is one of the warning signs to teen suicide. When teens say that they want someone too care and take notice of what they are saying. They want to see if anyone would care if they actually were to die because some may feel like they don’t have nobody. But when you hear a teen say this always offer to help and listen to what they really have to say and maybe there outlook will change on wanting to die.
Even so, some 46.8% of American high schoolers have reported having sex, with 5.6% reportedly having intercourse before the age of 13**. With these numbers in mind, doctors have recommended the HPV vaccination as a way to keep adolescents safe from the life threatening effects of HPV
In God's words a baby is always a blessing. “Behold, children are a gift of the Lord , the fruit of the womb is a reward”. (Psalms 127:3 the holy bible) “God is against any and every abortion even in the event of rape”.” You shall not commit murder”. (Exodus 20:13-15 Holy bible) If a woman is committing adultery outside of her marriage and becomes pregnant, abortion should not be an option because she was not faithful and it wasn't the baby's
Schools think teaching this will eliminate the risk of teens having coitus and that will eliminate the need for education on sexual intercorse, sexual activity, contraception, teenage pregnancy, and disease all together. But the proven facts are that abstinence only teachings do not delay the sexual intercourse of teenagers nor do they reduce teenage pregnancy. Another proven fact is that when teens are taught how to effectively use birth control, the rates of unwanted pregnancies go down. And finally when surveyed, over 90 percent of youth want to learn about sexuality and the dangers that come with sexual
“Providing a foundation of quality sex education is the only way to ensure that young people will grow into sexually healthy adults” (Hauser, 2013). The problem with early childhood sex education in the community of Danville is that there is none. Unfortunately, there are students as young as being in second and third grade beginning to talk about sex because of their curiosity towards the topic. When I attended their local school, their sexual education program did not begin until students reached the eighth grade. Also, the sexual education program that is taught in the eighth-grade health class does not goes as far as to talk about safe contraceptive use or the consequences that could happen if safe sex is not practiced effectively.
Becoming a young adult already has its share of personal issues, but having absent parents can result in loss of knowledge or wisdom. Teens are more likely to become pregnant if one or both parents are absent in the child’s life. “The impact of father absence on early sexual activity and teenage pregnancy was investigated in longitudinal studies in the United States (N = 242) and New Zealand (N = 520), in which community samples of girls were followed prospectively from early in life (5 years) to approximately age 18. Greater
When treatment first starts for HIV, some reactions are normal (fatigue, an upset stomach, headaches, aches as well as pains). And these side effects could be cured after a short adjustment stage (AIDS.gov 2017). Undoubtedly, the main way of HIV transmission in China is sexual contact; therefore, progressing sex prevention programs is the priority in this decade. It was announced by an organization called China Health and Family Planning Commission that teenagers, women, and migrant workers are the dominating objects of large-scale publicity companies and education institutions. For instance, individuals from any age group who had already attended HIV prevention programs could educate other groups about HIV prevention and awareness.
Sue Alford describes the Sex Ed curriculum as: “Teaches about abstinence as the best method for avoiding STDs and unintended pregnancy, but also teaches about condoms and contraception… It also helps young people explore their own values, goals, and options” (3). The Sex Ed curriculum understands that abstinence is the best way to prevent STD and pregnancy rates, but they are also understanding that not everyone will wait until marriage to become sexually active. Because of this, they make sure they provide information that could benefit everyone. Although Sex Ed includes information regarding all aspects of sex, Abstinence Only Programs are a different story. The curriculum in Sex Ed and Abstinence Only Programs differ but the overall message in both are the same.
Some people believe that sex education and abstinence-only education will not prevent teen pregnancies, but it can in fact influence them to either refrain from sex before marriage or avoid having unprotected sex. According to a study lead by author Pamela Kohler, “About 25% of teens received abstinence-only education and about two-thirds received comprehensive sex education” (Kohler). Researchers found that teens who received sex education were 60% less likely to get pregnant or to get someone pregnant than those who did not get sex education (HealthDay News). School boards schools consider utilizing sex education and abstinence-only education in schools. It could stop teens from dropping out of school and being in welfare.
