Which situation would you find more difficult dealing with as a parent: daughter engaged in safe sex with a male partner OR engaged in unsafe sex and now has an incurable STI and is pregnant?

How could anyone say contracting an STI?

I think it's getting at the fact that with comprehensive sex Ed, the safety option is more likely. Abstinence only, it's flipped. He's getting at the problem with morally opposing abstinence only sex Ed I think.

Mattwall asked a question earlier about condoms in schools. The majority, by a lot, opposed it. Yet, when broken down it seems as if people on SOH prefer it to the alternatives.

We do we just also want to prevent underage sex. There has to be balance between making contraceptives available enough so that if they are determined to have sex they can have them but strict enough to discourage the venture

Very good point. I remember seeing that question. This is not just opinion, the world health organization has data on this for teens (countries with primarily comprehensive sex Ed vs the US where it sort if depends where you are).

And @skinner- I also found in the world health org data that countries with comprehensive sex Ed had teens start having sex later. I think once the mystery disappears and the know the gravity of it, they think a little more.

So, in your mind 17 year old should be treated the same as ten year olds?

In regards to sexual activity yes

Do you prefer your blinders with sequins or classic black?

Cite Are you going to have a civilized debate with me or not?

I'm not entirely sure it is possible. You inhabit your own personal reality that barely resembles where the rest of us live. If you cannot agree on basic facts, then where will debate happen? Your perceptions are too skewed.
