Obama knows what he is talking about

I agree with Obama on this one. Sure, it's important to stress abstinence (especially since it's a REALLY young age that people are starting to get involved) but it's important to teach that if you're going to do it, at least be safe while doing it.
I don't like the talk about abortion, and how "it's a good choice" and whatnot. If you made a life, don't take it away. Keep the baby or put it up for adoption where it will have a better life. I just find it unethically right to take someone's right away to live, to have a chance because you forgot to use contraception.
I think, that if you're going to get involved, that it's best to use contraception (although you shouldn't be active at even 16, 17. I think it's WWWWAAAYYYY too young), but don't abort. Don't give up hope on life that would be cancelled because of a mistake. Give it a chance.

This is one thing I have to disagree with Governor Romney on. President Obama is right. Not only do we need to teach them about the importance of abstinence, it also is important to learn about safe sex using The Pill, condoms, etc.
But then again, I'm still going for Romney when it comes to the abortion thing. I'm glad he's taking that away unless in cases of incest/rape. Plus, President Obama seems to not care about whether teens are having sex and getting pregnant. He's the most pro-abortion prez we've ever had. And I don't like it, to be honest.

If teens want to have sex, odds are they're going to. Obama is right if they're going to do it anyway at least teach them how to have sex the safe way.
