Portland is joking, right?

Please tell me someone is pulling an awful joke in Portland, Maine, that the school board really didn't authorize the distribution of birth control devices and condoms to middle-school children, that we really haven't gotten that sick that we encourage promiscuous sex at the ages of 11 and 12. Are there any responsible parents who teach their children total abstinence until married? Sex is not a "play toy," it's the culmination of total emotional love and commitment between a husband and wife.
