Coming soon to the drug store aisles near you -- the morning after pill as an over the counter medication, available to girls age 15 and older. That's scary!
If you are a parent of a teenage girl or boy, please, please, please talk with your child about appropriate relations with the opposite sex before marriage.
Talk with them about the possible consequences from sexual relations, including sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy and increasing a girls' chance of developing cervical cancer.
Unbridled sexual activity in adolescence can lead to other consequences as well, such as emotional, relational and spiritual damage, limiting educational opportunities and hampering future career and family goals.
Never miss a local story.
Pleasure now is not worth all that. Please tell your children that. Don't wait for sex education classes in school to enlighten them.
