This round is for acceptance only. The second will be for presentation of arguments. Third through fifth will be for rebuttals. In case if anyone doesn't know what I refer to, this is it: http://www.huffingtonpost.com...

I accept, although I just realised I'm not 100% sure which side you're arguing (I realise this is NOT the cleverest thing to do, haha!) I want to argue that kids SHOULD learn about contraception. . .

Perhaps the "ought" would've been just fine rather than "ought not". lol

To opponent: I was going to be arguing that. lol. You were supposed to argue that birth control should NOT be included in the curriculum.

Yet at the same time, it's curriculum has probably prompted for remaining abstinent and while there are contraceptives, they emphasized that they are not 100% effective, right? Again I ask you: can you name even 1 sex ed program that actually has a 100% effectiveness rate in preventing sex and pregnancies. Furthermore, you're using a small sample size to try to make a general argument about the public at large. Why is your public school representative of all of America when it comes to the effectiveness of the sexual education program?

Or...you can promote other stuff get sex out of the media and not even mention it till their 17. I mean seriously the public school down my street has birth control in their curriculum and yet I know at least 20 girls there that is pregnant. I mean seriously if we just not even mention the word sex they wont even know about it.

Because children are sentient beings who tend to make decisions for themselves, and have the ability to not do what they are told. Children (by this, we mean people who take sex ed, typically teenagers) are curious about sex and will probably end up doing it even if some old women in Sex-Ed tells them not to. The best solution is to tell them they risk pregnancy and the only way to not have a child before marriage is abstinence, but should the predicament arise, contraception and birth control are a necessity.

Ought would imply a moral obligation by definition. I don't see why you couldn't.

can I argue morality?

Message me when you find a sex ed program that is 100% effective at promoting abstinence whether or not they teach about birth control. If abstinence is absolutely not an option, the very least they could have is a knowledge about how to do it safely and prevent problems in the future. That's just my two bits.

And how is telling CHILDREN about birth control gonna help out with getting CHILDREN not to have sex.
