They just don’t get it, do they?

There is a good article by Melanie Phillips in the Daily Mail today (see: The Government's obsession with pushing sex education and contraception is just creating MORE teenage pregnancies). There is nothing that we have not all been saying for ages but Melanie writes up the basic points with vigour and clarity. For example:
The underlying message of providing contraception and sex education is that sexual relationships themselves for under-age children are perfectly normal and acceptable. But they are actually unlawful...

Giving the message that an activity is normal and acceptable means inevitably that yet more people will engage in that activity. Dishing out the condoms and offering children a menu of sexual techniques amounts to propaganda for sexual incontinence.
