Lowering the Age of Consent?… Shouldn’t we start by Addressing it with young people in Discussions first?


Lowering the Age of Consent; Professor John Ashton, president of the Faculty of Public Health wants to lower the age of consent from 16 to 15. Claiming it will “help teens to get ­sexual health advice on the NHS and help realign who should be exposed to sexual messages.”

Prime Minister David Cameron was quick to reject Prof Ashton’s suggestion. (Read full article here: http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/443623/Anger-at-calls-to-lower-age-of-consent-to-15)

I also disagree that the age of consent should be lowered. Yet, I do believe that adults & parents etc. started talking about Sex with their children and young people to help take the pressures off.

In line with the Article, I came across an On-line Talk Show addressing the issue of young people becoming sexually active too early. It was very interesting, and I encourage you all to listen too.
