I have chosen to stick with my topic for my argument paper. I will be writing about how abstinence only sexual education courses are not effective. Points that will help me develop my argument are that now a days shoving abstinence down teens’ throats is unrealistic. Yes, abstinence is the only 100% percent way to protect yourself against pregnancy and sexual transmitted infections but many teens are engaging in sex anyways and they need to know how to be safe. If teenagers are not taught about contraception and safe sex then we cannot expect teen pregnancy rates to go down. In fact, I have found out that through some research that teen pregnancy rates are actually going down. Schools are incorporating comprehensive sex educations within their systems and that is helping the rates go down. I will have to use the statistical facts I have found that prove that teaching safe sex to teens lowers the rates of pregnancy and sexual transmitted infections and that abstinence only sexual education courses put teens in danger of them. If teens do not know how to be safe when they decide to engage in sex than they will be blind to what is right and what is wrong and how to keep themselves safe.
I thought this topic might be difficult for me because I wasn’t sure if I would be able to find enough support or even statistical data that helps support my argument. But so far I have found plenty of date that supports that teen pregnancy rates are decreasing and the cause is that we are informing teenagers of how to prevent pregnancy instead of telling them to avoid the whole sex thing all together. The same thing with sexual transmitted infections. Those rates are going down because teens are becoming more aware of how to be safe. There is also statistical data on teens that are in abstinence only sexual education courses and the outcomes of them. All these stats help me prove my argument so now I am aware that I will not have a hard time supporting myself in my paper.
