          Teens and Sex with the Bishop

          March 03, 2008


          Statistics show that 50 percent of all teenagers have had sex by the time they enter the 10th grade. Should schools be allowed to pass out birth control to students? Should teens be forced to take vows of purity? Dr. Phil and Bishop T.D. Jakes, renowned pastor and author of Reposition Yourself, tackle these and other controversial issues.



          Conflicted over Contraception

          Ed is an abstinence advocate who believes the only safe sex for teens is no sex. But 21-year-old Shelby calls Ed’s tactics “dangerous” and says kids need sex education in schools to stop teen pregnancy.


          Are abstinence-only programs effective? What does Dr. Phil think?


          Condoms in Class?

          Lisette says if she had had access to birth control when she was 12 years old, she wouldn’t have had a baby at 13. Is her school to blame for not handing out contraceptives?



          “If you play with fire, you’re going to get burned, baby!”


          The Age of Innocence

          Is it realistic for teens to live by purity pledges until they get married? A sexually active 14-year-old and an 18-year-old virgin face off on this touchy topic.



          “He’s having sex with her, and that’s respectful?” 



          Teen Forum

          Dr. Phil wanted to hear from the younger generation. Several high school students sound off on everything from sex education to birth control in schools. The discussion might surprise you.

          Time off for Pregnant Teens?

          Another issue making the headlines is: Should pregnant teens be given maternity leave? Dr. Lisa Masterson, an OB-GYN, shares her views.



          “We have given up control.”
