ALL THE STATS PROVE ABSTINENCE IS THE MOST SENSIBLE SEX EDUCATION

Lord God, thank You for people who are speaking out, lovingly, about the dangers of new sexual mores for children. Turn the tide of our culture.

This past week, Planned Parenthood celebrated the end of Pride Month by tweeting, “Young LGBTQ people need sex education that addresses their identities and experiences, so that they have the information and skills to take care of their sexual health.”

I agree.

So, let’s consider some facts. More specifically, let’s look at the real numbers as reported by our own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Sexual Health Association and other pertinent health agencies.

The most recent data available from the CDC indicates that nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted disease cases occur every year in the United States. Of these cases, half are among young people who are between the ages 15-24.

The same report shows that 25 percent of all millennial age women are presently infected with one or more STDs.

The American Sexual Health Association adds this alarming perspective: Presently one in two — 50 percent — of America’s sexually active persons will contract a STD by age 25.

The CDC goes on to estimate that one in eight people between the ages of 14-49 in the United States currently have genital herpes. . . .

Finally, 1.1 million people in the United States are presently suffering from HIV infection. Nearly 40,000 additional people are diagnosed with this precursor of AIDS each year. Of these new cases, 66 percent, or two-thirds, are reported to be caused by homosexual behavior. HIV continues to be a serious health issue worldwide. There are about 1.8 million new cases reported annually. Approximately 36.9 million people around the globe are currently infected. An estimated 940,000 people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2017 alone.

The CDC also says 23 percent — nearly one-quarter — of all high school students in the United States who engage in same-sex behavior experience sexual violence from a same-sex partner. About 18 percent report being raped by someone within their sexual community. LGBTQ adolescents are also 90 percent more likely than heterosexual peers to abuse illicit drugs.

The Trevor Project reports that suicide is the second-leading cause of death among young people between the ages of 10-24. For youth “who seriously contemplate suicide,” the rate for those engaged in same-sex choices is three times the rate of heterosexual youth. Actual suicide attempts for homosexual and “sexually fluid” youth are almost five times higher than for heterosexual youth. In a national study, 40 percent of transgender adults reported having made a suicide attempt. Ninety-two percent of these individuals reported having attempted suicide before the age of 25. . . .

So, yes, I think we can all agree with Planned Parenthood that, “young people need sex education so that they have the information and skills to take care of their sexual health.”

But, maybe, just maybe, sex education should focus on common sense and science rather than the science-denying nonsense of Planned Parenthood.

Is it possible that the best way to educate our children on how to “take care of their sexual health” is to tell them to abstain from sexual behavior that is proven to compromise their sexual health?

Call me crazy, but we might want to tell our kids that the best way to stay sexually healthy is to refrain from having sex with anyone but the one person (of the opposite sex) to whom they choose to be married. . . . 

[I]f they do so, they wouldn’t have to worry much about any of this. (Excerpt from The Washington Times, commentary by Everett Piper.)

  1. I think it was around Feb. 2004? Consumer Reports did a test on condemns. The ones they tested from Planned Parenthood had a very high failure rate. These are the ones PP gave out to high schoolers . CR thought they just got a defective batch so they got another batch to try- same results. It begs the question- did or does PP want teen pregnancies to stock
    their abortion mill from which they make millions of dollars? Giving out defective condos would certainly do that.
    Also there are many STDs that using condoms does nut prevent. Our kids are more and more being told lies.
    I was an abstinence educator . I Soon discovered how ill informed our kids and parents truly are. Thank you for this article!’

  2. I REMEMBER WHEN OUR CONSERVATIVE PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT LEFT THE ‘ABSTINENCE” APPROACH TO SEX EDUCATION TO
    A “SAFE SEX” APPROACH FROM MIDDLE SCHOOL THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL. OUR SEASONED COUNSELORS BECAME CONCERNED RE
    WHAT THEY THEN HAD TO DEAL WITH SUDDENLY IN MIDDLE SCHOOL. THIS STUFF WAS NEVER SEEN BEFORE; EXPERIMENTATION, PREGNANCY, RUMORS, PHOTOS ETC. LET’S PRAY OUR SCHOOL TEACHERS WILL NOT ATTEND THE ‘IN SERVICE TRAINING RE SAFE SEX OR STRONGER STUFF. I PRAY TEACHERS WILL FIND THEY DO NOT HAVE TIME TO GO DEEP INTO THE LIES OR TEACH THIS SUBJECT AT ALL IN A HEALTH EDUCATION CLASS…….UNTIL GOD REMOVES IT ALL TOGETHER AND SCHOOLS ONLY TEACH THE SIMPLE SCIENCE OF HOW BABIES ARE MADE ‘LORD LET ABSTINENCE TEACHING RETURN AND OUR CHILDREN REMAIN PURE
    AND WHOLESOME TIL MARRIAGE.’

  3. Devastating stats that fly in the face of California’s proposed legislation to lower the age of consent of a minor to 10 YEARS OLD so that “they too can be free to express themselves sexually “. Lord help us

  4. Lord, I ask that You give Christians the boldness to copy this article and send it to every Junior High and High School, School Board and Newspaper in the nation. Lets do a grass roots overhaul using FACTS. Lord, overcome the strategies of the evil one with righteousness. We pray a hedge of protection over our children.

    I am going to copy this article and give it to Youth Groups and encourage the kids to distribute at their schools. Lord, use this article for your glory!

    In Jesus Name! Amen

  5. Thank you Lord that the truth is in your word. Thank you that evidence of the truth is available in science
    and mathematics. Objective and realistic study lead back to you. Thank you for the guidance of the Holy Spirit which helps us discern the truth.

  6. I pray that parents everywhere will teach their children the right way to go as Your word declares and not to leave it in the hands of sex educators in or out of schools. NO to sex is the very best answer of all.

  7. Lord, please confuse the strategy of the demonic realm trying to destroy our children. Make one lie prove another wrong until they kill each other and fall to the ground, in Jesus name. Amen.
