It is prom season one high school offering more than special memories on his prom night the high school making condoms available.
For students as they leave the big dance what do you think about that shed.
President Concerned Women for America and doctor Cathleen London of family medicine physician.
At the iris cantor women's health center ladies good morning to -- in morning.
Well we were lucky to have of course Josh.
What do you think of this -- You know parents have the right.
-- -- but to the moral upbringing of their children and this is a case where this school and other schools are overstepping their boundaries.
And it -- into an area that is a parental responsibility.
And going beyond education without really an -- -- -- thing.
And we know the number one reason that kids it's staying from the -- is because of their moral value of their faith in the country the relationship with their parents.
And what this school stepped in between that relationship.
It's been very harmful -- -- the -- -- difficult.
It says that that could be the parents are making the choice to send their kids at the school the -- it's a prep -- -- by the -- right and it's a school for children who have actually not been successful -- other schools but let's go beyond that -- the -- of that just I didn't -- that -- -- -- -- that is unfortunately is not driven by statistics the states that have abstinence only education have the highest teen birth -- Mississippi 55 per 1000 dropped.
And in states that have concrete suspects.
Abstinence only but also condoms and birth control is how much are yes it -- channel it into the CDC he's getting me I'm not dot.
Sixteen per thousand in New Hampshire you got your point and it's my turn.
I'm we know that girls and what doctor would give your time take a log off the fire it's all cool nobody's villain anyway.
In America we are an embarrassment nine times the teen pregnancy rate of any other developed nation.
That's really reprehensible and I think I'll have -- -- saying if you do.
Here's a condom please use that be safe do not get a disease do not get pregnant.
That's all it's saying all right penny gave her an opportunity.
That that those like yourself and you're afraid that what this does is it sends the signal that news.
That that since it normalize -- teams acts.
Bill we know that.
Children seventeen and under about a third of them are having -- The majority aren't we have to abdicate the position that it's okay in his normal -- staying.
And -- we want to and we wanna help parents that are having trouble with their kids not let the schools get in between the parent child relationship that's the big name any day.
Patting the parent out of the DL if -- having trouble we know these kids -- getting into trouble.
Bring parents in the situation it's not just this one school we know that the condom companies.
Our offering today this kind of thing for a number of wolf it's a bad idea parents are outraged when they find out it happening in -- I think.
That they understandably are making doctor why is that not valid.
I I just disagree dozen -- obviate that a parent can discuss it with a child it's saying it's the responsible thing to do to use a condom.
And to prevent it and again abstinence only education has failed.
Over and over and over and again we have the statistically you couldn't shake your head all you want the CDC just as things are they.
And does -- only not a thing that way I think the end and 33% of condoms.
A L so he cinema content and that means that there always going to be thank -- what happened on that one -- And at schools not there to hand him a condom -- it in there and if he aided in -- -- -- on not and that's what ending.
But the next time.
Teenagers do all we know from being responsible are always gonna and that condom rat that's not the case we didn't need some big decision making -- that again economy isn't -- -- -- Making Staley and the fact that you're telling -- -- going doctor or give your last word her big point is that this is not the rule for the blue.
-- can you defend that -- it is absolutely the school is making it available -- parent isn't teaching.
And if -- if you haven't taught your teenager really by fifteen or whatever age do you really think that not giving -- information.
Is it gonna make a difference you have failed as a parent and -- that we're Pratt married about the way I was just think you know bad band and rented that he.
-- -- would probably make the night complete game and Stanley are gonna -- at least let them be hanging out.
Thank you ladies you -- vote bank champion.
It's not here on top of -- -- and on -- yeah.
Yep from bad dress maybe -- first littler out of my life I think.
I think I have my dad's -- -- still only in the present and panic here on out the first you're not the first time for other things.
