I see that lawmakers are going to do away with sex education in schools (Feb. 23, "Utah House approves abstinence-only sex education" and Feb. 26 editorial, "Pols' sexual hang ups"). I should have expected it since it wasn't too long ago that one of the headlines read that teenage pregnancies had gone down. So, the legislators have to change that. As long as they are writing the bill, they should be adding an addendum that the state will take on the hospital expenses for teenage pregnancies. After all, since they want to pregnancies to go up, they should be willing to pay for them.
Of course, there is the other things that happen when the sex between kids goes up; the sexually transmitted diseases also go up.
Maybe they can get the Eagle Forum to pay the charges for these issues since one of the un-elected representatives of this organization runs the Legislature and wants this legislation.
