Re "County offers free test kits to combat STDs" (Our Region, Aug. 30): Abstinence would solve the problem. Testing after the fact is a losing approach.
Testing before the acts that transmit such diseases would be more effective. The boys would know what not to get into, the girls would know what not to let into them. Girls should know that there are seven days during which they should not date.
