Shouldn't it be up to parents to decide when their sons/daughters are "old enough" to start having sexual relationships? Should it be at all the government's business about when this happens? I personally think it's just government intrusion into something which should be up to the families. I know this will get me flamed because a lot of people out there think everyone under the age of 18 are still babies but trust me, that ain't so! Yes birth control and disease prevention are BIG items, but sex itself is not a morals issue and even if it were, it's not up to governments to dictate morals. It's just ludicrous to think that a person's sexual needs don't 'awaken' until midnight the day they turn 18, and for them to conduct themselves as if that were true.
