**Yes. This is nothing new. It was this way 15 years ago when I was in high school. The school nurse and the “family life” elective class (what a joke btw) and p.e./health told me what all I could get, how to use it, and where to get it for free without my parents knowing.:mad: :crying: **
I know it’s a sin, and I’m honestly working on that side of it, but I HATE PP. Thank God my dh wasn’t the idiot, jack*, s** crazed, doesn’t really care about his girlfriend boy they promote all men as being and I wasn’t too ignorant to know better and can’t say no to sex girl they promote all girls as being.**
And what I can’t stand the most…
IF these young and/or poor clients are that ignorant and that jerky and that irresponsible and that sex crazed - Does anyone really think they can handle making such a medical choice and using it properly?! That does not make sense and the numbers of pregnancies they deal with are a witness to it. All the girls I knew in highschool were testimonies of pure dumb luck. “Oh I forgot my pills over the weekend, so I just took 3 Monday.” “He wore a condom, but it busted.” “I had an appt for my shot last week, but I had a band competition out of town and didn’t make it.” "I didn’t know birth control was a drug, I just thought it was hormones, so** I didn’t think about interactions with my other meds." (I kid you not about that last one.)**
**This was not a case of them not having sex education. Man oh man did we ever have sex education. Everything from putting a condom on banana, to putting diaphrams on those plastic models of female reproductive organs, to viewing a video of a live birth, to having unwed young mothers come in and tell us about how hard it is to raise a baby on their own, or give up for adoption, or worse, to pamplets with pictures of what some STDs look like.:eek: **
It’s not a case of ignorance about bc or sex or consequences. They are not capable of believing it will happen to them and they are simply not mature enough.
I don’t even think this is a religous issue at these ages. It’s just common sense and a health issue.
okay off my box now. sorry. time to grade long division and study plate techtonics.
