Resident supports education about sexually transmitted infections and teenage pregnancy

Thank you Christine Balfour for having the foresight, knowledge and common sense to provide a program for our teenage students about sex, specifically sexually transmitted infections and teenage pregnancy, the fast-track to poverty.

Equipped with this knowledge, young people make informed choices, often choosing abstinence until adulthood.

Ignorance and fear of God do not equate to purity and abstinence.

Regardless of your beliefs, choosing to be ignorant when education is available is not a realistic option. By providing facts, Ms. Balfour’s efforts are more likely to promote abstinence. For those who are sexually active, Ms. Balfour’s efforts have prevented STIs and teenage pregnancies. Be educated and always use a condom.
