    Didn't you recently post an article about an 11 year old giving birth? In that case, I'd say age 10 sounds about right.

    I'm not in total agreement with Planned Parenthood but they have a point about educating kids before they have sex, not after. And that includes everything - proper use of birth control, diseases, and yes abstinence. If we're going to raise the red flag about things like sex parties and pre-teen or very young teen pregnancy then don't just wring your hands, do something about it.

    "Planned Parenthood said it was unable to comment because the report was issued by its European office..."

    I am not going to get myself in a tizzy about what Europe does.

    10 is to young. Hell 12 is to young.

    It is PARENTS job to teach sex education not schools and not planned Parenthood.

    I disagree. Perhaps in some areas children are having sex in middle school, but for most children, "the pleasures of sex" can be discovered when THEY are ready - not when their fifth grade teacher thinks they are.

    I am particularly offended by the comments regarding "fundamentalist religions". If certain religions and religious schools do not want to teach youngsters about the "pleasurable and positive aspects of sex." and would rather focus on the CONSEQUENCES of risky sexual behavior, who the hell is Planned Parenthood to tell them otherwise?

    These people are hurting their own cause IMHO. I am starting to agree with some of the radicals on this issue that there is a more sinister agenda at work.

    Dagnabit! Didn't you get the memo? Don't concern yourself with details during demonization. It renders the entire purpose a moot point.

    You two are a laugh riot, you are aware that if they are doing it in Europe they are or will be doing it in the US as well? Guess not you two are just too stupid.

    And when the parents don't, or can't because they don't know enough themselves?

    Like I said, I don't completely agree with PP. I know some fundamentalists who are up front and realistic with their kids about sex, for example. But as far as how young is too young to start giving them information? I see nothing wrong with 10 or 12. If they're old enough to ask the questions they're old enough to start hearing the answers.

    Why try to infect others with your fear of education?
