No condoms in schools

2015-05-14 06:00

Government plans to introduce condoms in schools is another way of increasing teenage pregnancy.

Obviously children who are not sexually active will be tempted to try and they might not use condoms regularly.

Another factor is the large number of teachers who prey on schoolgirls.

If condoms are available at school, girls, especially in poorer areas will be even more vulnerable.

There is no need to make condoms available in schools.

Even now children have access to condoms but it doesn’t mean they use them.

Many pupils who engage in sexual activities have condoms in their pockets but they don’t use them. They want to experience the feeling of having sex without a condom.

Government should educate pupils about sex but shouldn’t offer them condoms. Otherwise teenage pregnancies will increase
