Do you know enough about sex to say that you are an expert? Most likelyÂ you do not. EveryÂ day new statistics show how teenagers are uniformed about issues that affect their future and everybody else around them.
There are several programsÂ that are focused on sex issues and how to educate teenagers about it.Â The purposeÂ of these programs is to inform teenagers ofÂ theÂ facts of sex and the consequences of having unprotected sex.
Besides pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, such as AIDS, HPV, and herpes, are just a few of the unreversible consequences of unprotected sex. It is estimatedÂ that there are over 900,000 teenage pregnancies a year in the United States.Â
A certain amount of these pregnancies are planned, but a majority are aÂ result ofÂ a variety of circumstances. These may include intentional forÂ a particular interest, unintentional when unprotected sex, and others for aÂ violation. Whatever may be the reason for these pregnancies, the truth is that is a concern to society in general. Because many ofÂ these teenagers do not have the proper income to support a new life,Â government programs have been created to help them start a family.
ButÂ where doesÂ the moneyÂ for these programs come from?Â Much of that moneyÂ comes from us: taxpayers. Whatever is your opinion on sex education,Â consider how it effects many inÂ general.Â
