Children are less likely to have sexual intercourse if they know nothing about it.

I accept your challenge, and I will be taking the position that children will find out about sexual intercourse anyway, and therefore it is good for them to understand sex.

How would they find out? If people are informed of sex and if the government attempts to make it "safe", children will feel less need to restrain their hormones. Besides, if someone gets pregnant, there's always abortion.

I'm just going to go through this self contradictory argument line by line.
How would they find out?
Well, duh, maybe their older peers, who already know. If we never teach anyone about sex, ban pornography etc. our race will die out.
If people are informed of sex and if the government attempts to make it "safe",
Isn't that what sex education is already about?
children will feel less need to restrain their hormones.


Ok I have 2 problems with this.

1. No sources or any research of any kind provided for this claim, so the voters and I have no reason to believe it.

2. Um, are we actually suggesting that hormones will just magically go away if we don't tell them about sex?

Besides, if someone gets pregnant, there's always abortion.

You clearly have no idea how drastic an intervention an abortion is. Are you seriously suggesting that instead of a cheap and effective condom, which is A PIECE OF RUBBER, we go through expensive abortions. No thank you. Condoms have been proven to be effective [1]. You might read that study, and say "But that is a study of HIV transmission". Well, it is, but HIV is remarkably 'good' for testing purposes, as it test the effectiveness of condoms as a barrier.

Finally, there was no definition of the terms last round, so please do it in the next or I will.

You win. I admit defeat. Sexual education is important to prevent children from the melancholy of being a teenage parent.
