Why can't pencils have babies?



Because they have rubbers on their end!!


According to the Guttmacher Institutenearly750,000 teenagers in America become pregnant each year.  Two-thirds of those occur among 18–19-year-olds.

So what can be done?  If you're sexually active, use a rubber.  When used consistently and correctly, condoms are highly effective in preventing pregnancy (and STIs). 

And did you know that CHEW offers brand name condoms at a discount?  CHEW's "Condom Sense" program sells condoms for $4 for a pack of 12 to all Homewood students.
