Why sex ed in schools is important

It goes without saying but teens will always have sex. Despite being lectured about abstinence, those raging hormones makes their brains take a backseat to their loins. Some teenagers intentionally have babies at that age but many more are surprised with their pregnancies. Lacking or not caring about contraception will always be an issue with every generation.

But news of the decline of teen birth rates is amazing. As many teens lack the means and experience to raise children, it’s unfortunate that they lose their youth for responsibility. Plus many argue that young parents are drain on society. Regardless of opinion, the fact is less and less teenagers are having kids.
