But by refusing to accept the inevitability of student sexual activity and stubbornly adhering to antiquated Church doctrine, the university is failing its students in its responsibility to promote sexual health.
If I was to ask you which university was being referred to, I wonder how many would come up with Georgetown. Stubbornly adhering to Church doctrine and Georgetown are not exactly worlds I would expect to appear in the same sentence. The odds of such an occurrence I would normally rate at a number with a very high value exponent. That Georgetown has not bought into the condoms for students mentality is positive indeed.
The Trojan Sexual Health Report Card gave Georgetown a 1.1 on "sexual" health. Yale got a perfect 4.0 and Notre Dame and Brigham Young got 0.0’s. I remember a time when a corporate sponsored survey on the availability of their products might have gotten sneers from students. Now it is just accepted wholesale and becomes the subject of a student newspaper.
Georgetown does not have to abandon its moral ideals and condone premarital sex, but in light of the health risks involved in the absence of contraception and STI testing, it is time for the university to accept responsible sex as the lesser evil.
So how exactly would an evil ever be described as responsible? Evil is always irresponsible.
