Condoms for teens?

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

A new school program that delivers monthly packages of condoms to the homes of students as young as 12 has some parents upset.

The controversial program has sparked outrage in San Diego County, California.

The kids do not need parental permission, and they can get up to ten condoms a month. Outrage is picking up steam across the country.

News Leader 9 spoke with local parent Brenda Harris on how she feels about such a program coming to Columbus.

The program runs on a $5,000 yearly budget paid by federal tax dollars. It has given out more than 30,000 condoms across California so far.
