This paper discusses how some people believe that early sex education or programs making birth control devices such as condoms available to school-age children, promotes sexual activity leading to increased teen pregnancy. It contends that this is a highly erroneous and misleading view as a comprehensive sex education program for the youth substantially decreases teen pregnancy. The author argues why he believes so and also discusses how the problem of teenage pregnancy can be tackled more effectively.
