Would there be consequences for starting a safe sex campaign at my high school?
It has come to me and my friends attention that there are a lot of pregnant teenagers in my school. Four of my friends (who are all under 18) have now had children this year. And everyday I see at least 5 or 6 girls whom I don’t know that are pregnant.
So my friends and I came up with the idea to start a safe sex campaign.
The only problem is, is that my school is very strict. And in the county where I live, the schools teach abstinence rather than safe sex. Now, I have no problem with teaching abstinence, but that’s not reality. I can’t tell you how many girls at my high school I know that got abortions last year.
So do you think my friends and I would get in trouble if we started this campaign? We want to hand out condoms after school dances like Homecoming and Prom, so that we are not seen as a ‘disruption to the school environment’. However, would we possibly get in trouble?
My school is very strict. Carrying a hat around, not on your head, is seen as a disruption to the learning environment.
We were thinking about ‘testing the waters’ first, by creating shirts promoting safe sex.
Would parents be in an uproar? Would you be in an uproar if schools started giving out condoms?
