Teen sex crackdown in KS: We're not KY!

Cdc_girlandboy_45010By Greg Reeves

Kansas AG Phill Kline is poking his nose into the lives of 62 Kansas families in which an underage girl had a baby.

Just what a family with a newborn or a toddler needs - lawmen in the living room. But the law's the law, right?

Legal sex in Kansas occurs on a complex ascending age scale we don't understand. We have calls in.

But we know a million or so American teens are probably sex criminals under the law. A major CDC study released last month shows that much underage sex.

Taking the CDC's data, we calculated the number of 15-year-olds in the U.S. having sex:

Kansas is just under 1 percent of the U.S. pop. That would mean about 11,000 15-year-olds are having sex among the sunflowers.

Go Phill Kline! Or, what do you think?
