The main topic of this debate is whether or not the school system in America should teach abstinence only sex ed. My stance on the situation is that abstinence only education only increases teen pregnancy and the spread of AIDS and HIV. In order to reduce these rates we must teach about contraceptives and the proper way to keep yourself safe.
There would be no need for contraceptives if the youth were educated on sex and why they don't need it. They should be taught to wait to be in a committed before having sex. This would benefit them in the long run and keep them from ruining their future in with pregnancy, STDs, and even a bad reputation if you are having sex at a young age.
