Letters to the Editors
Thank you for the inspiring and insightful article about Days for Girls/Lake Chapala by Margaret Ann Porter about the new non-profit effort to educate local teenage girls about their bodies. Study after study has shown that when teenage girls — no matter where in the world they live — learn about their menstrual cycles and normal hormonal changes in a non-judgmental manner, they are less likely to get pregnant unexpectedly, less likely to contract an STD and more likely to delay their first sexual experiences.
Bravo to the El Ojo editorial staff for spotlighting this program. I can’t wait to return to Lakeside to volunteer!
