You know there are adults that are easily manipulated into just taking the condom off and finding themselves in sticky situations (no pun intended). What more the kids?
I mean be honest. The kids who are the STI statistics are the ones who started off the sexual encounter with a condom on, but were coerced or manipulated into taking it off for a more "pleasurable" or "natural" experience. Who is going to be more at risk of contracting an STI? A kid who is never taught the value of abstinence and the parent is ok with the child having sex with numerous people just as long as there is intention to use condoms and birth control? Or the kid who is taught to save sex for their spouse? Statistics tell me that the person who saves his/her self for their spouse will be less likely to contract an STI. (And don't try bringing up unfaithful marriages that may have resulted in someone contracting an STI because that is not the norm.) Our kids deserve to know that it is possible to AVOID sexual relations until they get married so as to avoid disease and unwanted pregnancy, but instead Planned Parenthood needs to make money off of disease, birth control, and abortion.
The kids are not getting STD's because they took a class emphasizing abstinence. They got the STD's because they started out with a condom like their sex ed teacher said to, but then boyfriend says "baby it doesn't feel as good with it on, I wanna feel you, I love you." Teach your kids to AVOID the risks instead of trying to merely reduce the risk. Common sense.
You can auto-deliver these kids Costco sized boxes of condoms and dental dams and they are still coming off and fluids will be exhanged, it's human nature. The only thing comprehensive sex education achieves is pressuring kids to have sex earlier than they need to due to the peer pressure. Comprehensive sex ed does not teach the child that sex is something that should be saved for one person, their spouse. Comprehensive sex ed fails, look at the CDC report and see that STD rates are increasing despite all the cool colors, textures, and flavors of condoms. Kids need to know that they are more valuable than their sex ed teacher says they are. They are not merely sexual beings who can be experimented on by others. They are valuable people who deserve someone telling them that sex can wait until marriage. Instead Planned Parenthood curriculum is just looking out for their bottom line, they want children to fail so they can come in for treatments and abortions. Abstinence works 100% of the time to prevent STD's and unwanted pregnancy (see peer reviewed journal on common sense). But who am I, what are my credentials? Oh yeah I'm just a crazy Christian.
