Have you guys ever been taught in school about sex and health?
The reason why it is prohibited is because that if a child had sex, and the risk of them having a baby is very stressful, embarrassing, and puts a large toll on the parent of the child’s life. Also including, that EVEN if you think you’re mature enough to handle a baby, which may or may not be true. You don’t have a good enough job to pay for childcare and to take care of it without ruining your life. via. dropping out, abortion, etc. So 12 year-olds could or could not be ready for intercourse, but if you’re ready doesn’t make it right.
