Day #116 - April 28, 2010 - National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy

I talked about here the kind of students I have in my school. Well, I found out that next Wednesday, May 5th, is the National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. Most of the girls at my school have already had a baby, or 2 or 3... But, its my job to try to help them prevent it again. Because HISD is totally against discussing contraception, I have to focus on abstinence (totally unrealistic in my opinion, but oh well). Me and my creative self made this flier to hand out to the school next Wednesday to focus on not having sex. Most of the students will probably wad it up and put it in the trash can, but hopefully it'll get through to at least one student and that means I have done my job. It's going out to the boys too. These boys need to understand that their choices have consequences just as much as the girls do. Hopefully you can read the details of the flier, but if not, its focusing on the myths about sex and I got all the information from this awesome website!

I'm speechless that you aren't allowed to talk about contraceptive. I mean I'm all for abstinence, but obviously these girls are way beyond that point. I think the frustration of this would be a little overwhelming to me.
