R & C of Sexual Activity: Lesson 6, Analysis of Recent Developments in Repro Health

Type of Work: Indy Product: Doc/Embedded Class Time: Period EOC: Embed/Snip (Lesson 6) Due: Next Period
Concept: Below are some of the most recent developments related to reproductive health in our society. Your job will be to provide an analysis of these developments. As we discussed in the beginning of the unit sex ed is a values driven topic. These issues are inherently controversial themselves because although there are facts that may help you understand them ultimately you see these facts through the prism of your own perception (values, morals, upbringing, etc.). The sources listed are just a starting point, remember that any information may be biased and it is your job as an educated consumer to carefully analyze information for validity, reliability, and bias. Goal: Provide an analysis of the recent developments in reproductive health demonstrating an understanding of content specific information necessary to understand each issue (ie. What strains are protected against in the HPV vaccine, approved locations for the Safe Haven law). Complete each level (not just 1) working from left to right based on level attempted. ----------------Snip Below This or Delete Top Contents for Evidence of Completion (All Fit on 1 Page) or I will Show You How to Embed-------------------

Topic 1: The HPV Vaccine Debate


Information Necessary to Understand Topic

Potential Sources

Basic Overview: There is a vaccine for boys and girls that protects against the Human Papilloma Virus.

What it Does Protect Against: 1.Cervical cancer 2. Anal carcinoma 3.Genital warts % of Cervical Cancer Protection: 70% How Many Shots: 3 shots

What it Doesnt Protect (Think!): 1. Pregnancy 2. Bacterial STDs 3.Fungal STDs % of Genital Wart Protection: 90% Is there a shot for boys? What is it called?

My Level of Agreement: Highlight or Underline One (I think this is.) Really Really Bad For Good for Society Society Potential Advantages Potential Disadvantages 1. 1. + Protects people from HPV - Neurological damage

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
2. - Infidelity 3. - Allergic reaction

2. + Less people will worry about HPV 3. + Find new partners with less worry

Does this promote promiscuity or should we take advantage of something that could potentially help us? While it does allow for promiscuity, it is something that

is beneficial for us. In the event of a rape, someone with this vaccine will not get the virus from the rapist.

Level 5/Extra Credit/Going Beyond: Define Herd Immunity and explain how it applies to the debate.

Topic 2: Emergency Contraception (Plan B)


Information Necessary to Understand Topic

Potential Sources

My Level of Agreement: Highlight or Underline One (I think this is.)

Basic Overview: Plan B One-Step is a progestin-only ECP. Plan B One-Step is like progestin-only birth control pills, but contains higher levels of the hormone. Plan B One-Step is a one-pill emergency contraceptive available over the counter for people ages 17 and older. It must be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. Intended Use (Why people use it): To not have a baby that the woman didnt want. How close to failed / no contraceptives: (Time Frame?) 72 hours after sex

Really Bad For Society

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Potential Advantages Potential Disadvantages 1. - Good people not born

Really Good for Society

1. + Less children up for adoption 2. + Less abortions 3. + Happier couples

Do You Need a Prescription?: No

Cost:$10-$70

2. - Allow unprotected sex 3. - Girls dont have to talk to parents about it

Mechanism of action-how it works:

It uses synthetic progesterone to prevent a pregnancy from occurring. It by preventing ovulation.

Does this promote people not taking accountability for their choices or provide an alternative to someone not wanting to get pregnant?

Yes because then they can get involved in risky, sexual behavior, and not have to face the consequences.

Level 5: How is this similar/different than the abortion pill (RU-486)? It is similar in that it stops the woman from having a baby. It is different in that the RU-486 kills the
embryo, and the Plan B prevents the pregnancy.

Topic 3: The Condom Availability Debate


Information Necessary to Understand Topic

Potential Sources

Basic Overview: People are deciding whether or not condoms should be allowed to be available to minors in schools.

Provide one stat on teen pregnancy. In 2011, a total of 329,797 babies were born to women aged 1519 years, Cite: http://www.cdc.gov/teenpregnancy/abo utteenpreg.htm

Provide one stat on teen pregnancy. Nearly half of the 19 million new STDs each year are among young people aged 1524 years Cite: http://www.cdc.gov/HealthyYouth/sexu albehaviors/ In your opinion do these statistics warrant public educations involvement? Children should learn about their options, but I think that it is not the school s responsibility to give students more access to them. What does a schools condom availability program look like? Who gets condoms, where, when and how?

My Level of Agreement: Highlight or Underline One (I think this is.) Really Really Bad For Good for Society Society Potential Advantages Potential Disadvantages 1. 1. + Fewer teen pregnancy - More kids sexually active

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

2. + Fewer STDs among teens 3. + More access for minors

2. - Less parent involvement in their childs life 3. - Younger age of lost virginity

Anyone could get condoms in the school, usually with parent consent, in a school that offers this program. They would be available through the

So the big question is how would condom availability affect the student body? Does it promote unhealthy behavior or are you providing a healthy outlet for those that will do it anywaysif so is it even a schools place to get involved? I think kids will be

more like to become sexually active if they have access to condoms, because

schools nurse, other personnel, or in a vending machine.

they will feel more secure and less worried.

Level 5/Extra Credit/Going Beyond: What does your research say/cite? Do condoms make a difference? Cite at least 1 study and the results.
