Planned Parenthood Guest: OK If Teens Have Sex; Urges Parents Let Teens Have Sex in Their Homes

The Life Site News website reports today (March 20, 2012) that a featured speaker at a Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernadino Counties (California) luncheon last week suggested that parents allow their teenage children to have sex in their home.

Dr. Amy Schalet -- an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst -- said American parents should be more like parents in the Netherlands, who allow teenagers to have sex openly under their roof.

"In the Netherlands, if a girl is in a relationship, she's not a slut for wanting sex," she said.

Schalet -- who spent part of her life in the Netherlands -- said Dutch parents consider children ready for intercourse at the age of 16.
