New York High School Nixes Plan to Distribute Condoms at Prom

"Passing out condoms like you’re passing out candy to these children"

Earlier this week, it was reported that New York's Bedford-Stuyvesant Preparatory High School was planning to distribute condoms to students as they left their prom.

The school's principal reportedly told the New York Daily News, "This is necessary...It's practical and it's the right thing to do."

About 25 students were expected to attend the prom, and the principal explained that there have already been several students in the school with children.

“We’re fooling ourselves if we think we can leave this up to [teens] to be proactive,” he concluded.

But now, following national disgust over the matter-- and the fact that distributing condoms to high school students is in many ways tacit approval of the act-- the school has seemingly revised its plan.

Watch Fox News contributors explain the issue, below:

Fox News contributor Santita Jackson examined the dilemma from another angle, saying: “I’m looking at the profit motive here, because … this pharmaceutical company who are making the condoms are passing them out.”

She continued, “You cannot have privilege without responsibility … because I don’t think that you should be passing out condoms like you’re passing out candy to these children.”
