It sounds like a good idea in theory. However, condoms are free in many places right now and there are still unwanted pregnancies. I haven't read too deeply into this issue, but from my own experiences with teenage friends, unwanted pregnancies resulted from lack of education and a theory that "it would never happen to me" coupled with "we'll be together forever."

I honestly feel as though America is becoming a nation of self-entitlement and irresponsibility in many ways. There's no accountability anymore. And with the numerous other scary issues we face as a nation, this isn't exactly what I would rate as a "top issue."
