Yes. That all makes perfect sense. It WAS starting to happen on a limited basis --physical and mental health care professionals (nurses and doctors on recommendation of the nurse) available in schools . Now with funding reduced , those positions are being eliminated. All that's left is the limited basic education that teachers could provide if they allowed to even do that. I suppose the idea is that if we do not even talk about reproductive issues, the ignorance will stop couples who are hot for each other from indulging. It will not happen that way, never has, never will. Issue avoidance is not the same as issue solutions. As you correctly point out , education will not slow down hormones. With modern methods of contraception available, would it not make sense to teach people how to use them?

TSF, let's be real. You can educate them all you want; however, if they are already sexually active and have managed to miss the bullet of getting pregnant they NEED to see a healthcare professional. A teacher is not a healthcare professional. If a girl and boy are "in love" (as they always think) or just real hot for each other, do you really think they care what a teacher said in class?
I don't know the pregnancy rate for teens in your county, how many middle and high schools there are, but wouldn't it make better sense to hire a FNP, PA or even a semi-retired family doctor to see these children at school with their parents permission? Teachers cannot and should not write prescriptions, they're not trained to be doctors or nurses. I'm meeting you halfway here.
They can even get their prescriptions for birth control free and most times the doctor will give them at least a 3-month supply in the office. They can even get the Depo shot that's good for three months.
I get the idea of education reducing unemployment, poverty etc, but hormones will win the battle of education in the sex ed department almost all the time. Get the idea?

TSF, I must be out of the loop. Other than condoms what modern methods of contraception is available without a prescription. B/C pills, IUD's, Depo shots, are only available with a prescription. Teachers can teach what happens as a result of unprotected sex such as STD's, HIV, or unwanted pregnancies. If all you can offer is a picture of how to use contraception if you should ever get it, then the best lesson a teacher can teach is abstinence.

TSF, seriously, have you ever thought about trying to find semi-retired doctors that would each take a day a week without pay or minimal pay to help schools or give the local health department extended help? I know everyone thinks it's the government's place, but it only takes one or two individuals to bring such an idea before their local clinics or health departments. As you seem to have a good knowledge of your neck of the woods, people like you could help out. Also, I think you'd be shocked at the doctors who will donate time.

My child brings me information all the time about free services offered not only by doctors, but dentists too. Do you know if your area has ever had the Mission of Mercy dental team set up in a local church, warehouse not in use or some place to offer free dental services? It's dentists, dental assistants, oral surgeons, people that make dentures on the spot, etc all come together and usually for two days they see people back to back. People come from all parts of the state if they hear about it. Maybe you could help coordinate something like this. There's still good people out there and they don't need the government to tell them what to do, they just do it.

I agree with abstinence . I do not really expect that to happen on a widespread scale.

In a trial, decisions should be made based upon the evidence presented AT THE TRIAL. I think the jury did that and would have no reason to question their decision now. Zimmerman was not tried for character or personality . What he has done since then area different issues. You are making the same emotional mistake that you made originally and will not let go of---- that is ---deciding upon guilt before you know all the facts. If I want to get on national news , all I have to do is SAY that George Zimmerman threatened me and pointed a gun at me. His enemies will do that until he dies.

Reading the most recent article, Zimmerman had a prior Domestic assault in 2005 and was ordered to complete anger management sessions. Along with his two recent Domestic assaults and a murder charge, do you think that this man needs to be walking around with a gun in his possession?

IMO no. After being found not guilty of murder, Zimmerman seems to think he is invincible. Thinks he can just walk around pistol whippping anyone he wants. IMO, he's just as guilty as OJ. I put little faith in our court system. Like everything else it's a white collar money racket, where you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent. That is, if you have enough money to do so.

BTW, many a person has taken a plea bargin and admitted guilt even though they were innocent, just because it was easier to do the time than come up with the money they did not have to fight for justice.

If George Zimmerman is allowed to purchase a gun with his record, then I should be allowed to purchase a nuclear weapon with mine.

State don't get me wrong I have great respect for TSF and his intelligence is sometimes beyond my comprehension but on this Zimmerman case I have to disagree. Heck as far as I'm concerned Taxpayer don't need a gun either.

I just saw on evening news that Zimmerman was forced to relinquish his weapon as part of his bail agreement. His girl friend made national news. She looks good but doesn't present well. Looks like George is headed for a trial for threatening the girlfriend. She says he choked her about a week ago ,pointed a shotgun at her and threatened suicide..
George just isn't having a good week. I am curious if the trouble with his soon to be ex had anything to do with the girlfriend.
I agree that Taxpayer is in need of an evaluation. I fear he is suffering from acute communist paranoia.

Yes, for some of our folks living in remote hollers there are no doctors closer than 6 hours walking time.
Have YOU ever tried to see a doctor with no money in your pocket and no insurance? You will be told "If its an emergency, call or go to the emergency room at the hospital".(the hospital is 2 miles from the health department). With 9.9% unemployment here, you can imagine how many people have no insurance or money. Yes most people here have access t a car, but not all. How many indigent teenage girls do you know who have a car, or money to buy gas, or even money to buy food or even know where the health department is located?
I'm just saying that it makes more sense to educate them in ways to be reproductively responsible in public schools before they get pregnant. The law requires them to be there, transportation is already provided to get them there and educated persons are available to teach them. You want to slow abortions? Educate them and make contraception available. You want to reduce the need for welfare? Educate them. You want to reduce unemployment? Educate them. You want to reduce disease and poverty? Educate them. You get the idea
