    They shouldn't really be having sex at their age but it'd be better for them to take the pill than to have a baby.

    The age of consent is to prevent pedophiles not to prevent young people having sex.
    Are we as a society okay with children of the same age, any age, having sex?

    I choose to answer this question with another question. How are we as a society going to stop teenagers having sex?

    That's the politicians' job to figure out, but only if we as a society demand it. Do we?

    I was playing out, climbing trees and playing football at the age of 13, not going at it like rabbits. Talk about the early sexualisation of society.

    Whether they get the pill is a hard one though. I don't know whether it will help deter under age sex if it's not available, or whether we'll just end up with loads of pregnant 13 year olds.

    So you're happy to demand something be done, yet you have no solutions or ideas on how to solve this issue? If you really care so much about this issue then you should do something about it. Propose some ideas to your MP or something.
