CPS Offers Free Condoms to 5th Graders: Because You Don’t Want an STD to Wipe You Out Before a Bullet Does
When Chicago Public Schools resume classes in the fall, students as young as 10-years-old – grades fifth and up — will have access to free condoms.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times crime blotter, the long, Fourth of July weekend was one of the deadliest in Chicago this year. Seventeen people were killed, and at least ninety-nine others were wounded because of gun violence.
Yesterday, Mayor Lori Lightfoot met with Dementia Joe to discuss ways the federal government could help with the gun violence in the city. Chicago already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, yet, somehow criminals keep getting guns and bringing them in.
But, I digress… Lori and Joe are on it, though—don’t you worry!
And Chicago’s other focus? Ensuring the children of the city are safe from sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.
Because you don’t want to get killed by a deadly STD before that stray bullet gets its chance.
Starting this fall, free condoms will be available at Chicago Public Schools with students fifth grade or older.
