Feds: $100,000 to teach teen girls ‘condom negotiation’

Washington Examiner

The administration is funding a $100,000 study of pregnant and “at-risk” 14-17-year-old girls on probation in Houston, Texas, to determine ways to help them choose safer lifestyles and avoid pregnancy, including better “condom negotiation” tactics.

The National Institutes of Health, part of the Health and Human Services Department, is providing a University of Houston researcher the money because of the lack of study of female teen juveniles in trouble with the law.

The school said the study, “Choices – Teen: A Bundled Risk Reduction Intervention for Juvenile Justice Females,” will include 30 at-risk girls, ages 14-17, on intensive probation with the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department.

The goal, said the school, is to determine if intervention programs will help the kids make better life decisions.

    So they’re spending 100 grand to teach girls who are already pregnant how to better negotiate with a guy over wearing a condom? Little late for that wouldn’t ya say? That is Liberalism right there. Oh Crap, here I go. I can hear the little wheels in my head starting to pick up speed…

    “Baby, if you don’t wear the rubber, we ain’t doin it…Period”. negotiations over!

    Typically the liberals want to teach everyone ‘HOW’ to think.

    There’s no real learning going on, they just love to spend our money.

    We’re over the moral cliff already, get ready for the splatter.

    Tons of $$ for birth control and abortion but forget trying self control and morality, I mean REALLY that religious stuff only held society together for thousands of years.

    Lights out folks….

    Condom Negotiation

    At first, I thought that meant they were teaching the girls how to negotiate any difficulties in actually putting the condom on the guy! As in: don’t unroll it all the way first.

    Oh! That’s lesson 2? Never mind.

    30 goes into 100,000, carry the naught … 14-years old, pregnant, and on intensive probation. Yep, polished, condom-negotiation skills will take care of all that. Do their 24-year old mothers have to sign permission for them to be in the study?
