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.
