ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on why sex education is a necessity in the U.S. schools. The author read once that over 60 girls in one high school were pregnant or already had children due to unawareness of contraceptives. He says that it seems as if the U.S. is too prudish and conservative to give its adolescents proper sex education, at the expense of teenage girls. The author opts for sex education at each school, regardless of religion or belief in abstinence or conservatism.
