Foreign students discovering sex

For young foreigners studying in Australia it's not all work and no play:

"One in three abortions at the Women's and Children's Hospital is performed on international students, University of Adelaide research has found.

"A paper by the Discipline of General Practice says the terminations are predominantly carried out on Chinese students.

"The high abortion rate has prompted calls for comprehensive sex education for the tens of thousands of students who make South Australia their temporary home.

"Principal researcher Dr Adrienne Burchard found that international students had limited sexual knowledge, could become more sexually active while living in Australia, and did not always know how to access contraception information."

Personal freedom and lack of knowledge, now there's a recipe for trouble.
