A counselor and elder of the church of Pentecost, New Achimota District in Ghana, Mr Nii Armah Hammond, has admonished stakeholders to allow teenagers who can’t control their libido to be allowed to practice safe sex.
The respectable church leader, was speaking on Ahotor fm during a program aimed at educating the youth.
Hammond believes that the best means of preventing teenage pregnancy and its associated complications is through protected sex.
As he puts it, the stigma associated with teenage pregnancy affect the family concern long after the act and in most cases making the products of such pregnancy liabilities for the nation.
Telling the youth to abstain is a failed strategy, as they will have it anyway, he argued, so the best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to educate them on the use of condoms.
