Reasons for Abstinence

I believe…

that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change. I believe- that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that. I believe- that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love. I believe- that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life. I believe- that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be. I believe- that you should always leave loved ones with loving words.  It may be the last time you see them. I believe- that you can keep going long after you can't. I believe- that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel. I believe- that either you control your attitude or it controls you. I believe- that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something positive and solid to take its place. I believe- that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences. I believe- that money is a lousy way of keeping score. I believe- that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time. I believe- that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up. I believe- that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right...

Tweens & Teens!

Click here for kewl stuff…     Tweens & Teens!   Did you click this link to find out about sex? Good! What do you want to know? Other sites may tell you what you think you want to hear, but we will tell you what is medically accurate.   So, which way do you think will really protect you the most? If you want to hear that having sex is OK for teens, for 20-somethings, or even 30-somethings who are NOT in a life-long committed relationship (that means marriage), think again. Diseases, pregnancy, emotional damage, broken trust, inability to emotionally bond to another person, guilt, depression, suicidal thoughts & attempts are just waiting to visit you in any hooking up you plan — or allow — to get involved in. As much as some want you to believe that we are just like the animals, and that sex is just a pleasurable activity to do anytime, anywhere, with anyone, or with anything, you might want to think about the fact that you can, well, THINK… and REMEMBER. Do you want to someday meet that person you really love, and realize you need to keep your whole past a secret, because you are ashamed of things you did? Do you want to spend your whole future regretting your past? Do you want to marry that special person, and then as you marry and start to make love, you keep having flash-backs of OTHER PEOPLE you had sex with? You won’t even be able to enjoy sex with the Love of Your Life because all you can see is other...

20 Ways to Achieve Respect

CHASTITY FOR TEENS 20 Ways for Young Women to Command the Respect They Deserve   Women today are surrounded by attitudes, actions, and materials that demean, degrade, and disrespect them. Our society claims to respect women and yet thinks nothing of pornography, casual sex, and contraception. It tells women that equality with men means being the same as men and claims that women have a “right” to kill the children within their wombs. Women’s true dignity and worth is equal to and not more or less than that of men. Listed below are 20 practical ways for young (and all) women to insist on the respect we should receive. 1. Refuse to sleep with a man until you have his wedding ring on your finger. IF HE REALLY LOVES YOU, he’ll wait. 2. Don’t laugh at dirty jokes, making fun of the beautiful mystery of our sexuality. 3. Don’t wear degrading T-shirts with messages like “Who needs a brain when you have these?” (now discontinued because of protests). Consider refusing to buy from stores or manufacturers that make and sell these things. Women are not objects to be used. 4. Keep your heart and body pure. Think pure. Be pure to be sure. 5. Dress in a way appropriate to your dignity. As Crystalina Evert, a fabulous chastity speaker puts it, “Don’t walk around sending the message that your body is the best part of you—implying that your heart, mind, and soul aren’t so important. Instead, say with your modesty, ‘I’m worth waiting to see.’” 6. Don’t EVER let a guy oogle you with his eyes or touch you...

Heredity Does Not Predict Homosexuality (2006)

"Homosexuality Is Not Hardwired," Concludes Head of The Human Genome Project Francis S. Collins, one of the world's leading scientists who works at the cutting edge of DNA research, concluded that "there is an inescapable component of heritability to many human behavioral traits." However, he adds, "for virtually none of them, is heredity ever close to predictive."   In reviewing the heritability (i.e., influence of genetic factors) on personality traits, Dr. Collins referenced the research of Bochard and McGue for the estimated percentage of these traits that can be ascribed to heredity.   The heritability estimates for personality traits were varied: General Cognitive Ability (50%), Extroversion (54%), Agreeableness (42%), Conscientiousness (49%), Neuroticism (48%), Openness (57%), Aggression (38%) and Traditionalism (54%).   Such estimates of heritability are based upon unbiased, careful analyses of studies conducted with identical twins. The studies lead to the conclusion that heredity is important in many of these personality traits. It is important however, to note that even in such studies with identical twins, that heritability is not to be confused as inevitability.   As Dr. Collins would agree, environment can influence gene expression, and free will determines the response to whatever predispositions might be present.   Dr. Collins succinctly reviewed the research on homosexuality and offers the following:   "An area of particularly strong public interest is the genetic basis of homosexuality. Evidence from twin studies does in fact support the conclusion that heritable factors play a role in male homosexuality. However, the likelihood that the identical twin of a homosexual male will also be gay is about 20% (compared with 2-4 percent of males...

Homosexuality and Anal Cancer (2/07)

Study: HIV-positive Practicing Homosexual Men 9000% More Likely to Develop Anal Cancer New research has again shown the grave danger of homosexual sex acts to the human body. The grave health risks associated with such dangerous sexual behaviours is one of the prime reasons why society as a whole should oppose homosexual acts, doctors have told LifeSiteNews.com under condition of anonymity.   A study which appears in the February issue of the International Journal of STD & AIDS, has found that "HIV-positive men who have sex with men are up to 90 times more likely than the general population to develop anal cancer."   The study was based on data from 244 patients at the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA) CARE clinic who had anal cytology screenings (similar to a pap smear) between February 2002 and December 2004. The UCLA authors of the study are: Ross D. Cranston, Steven.D. Hart , Jeffrey A. Gornbein, Sharon L. Hirschowitz, Galen Cortina, and Ardis.A. Moe.   A Canadian doctor who spoke to LifeSiteNews.com (anonymously for fear of reprisal) about the dangers of homosexual sex acts in 2005 stated: "Anal intercourse causes abrasions of the relatively fragile rectal wall, especially in the receptive partner. The penetration of E.coli, always present in the stool, and other bacteria, viruses and parasites penetrate through such lesions into the deeper body tissues. This leads to the suppression of the immune system of such individuals even if there is no exposure to HIV. The immune suppression increases the risk to develop certain cancers, opportunistic infections, to which otherwise one would be resistant, and other health problems...

Testing A Sexual Relationship

What if an unmarried couple is sexually active and one of the partners (A) asks the other (B) to stop having sex? How would being infatuated or being in love affect the other partner’s reaction? If the other partner (B) insists on continuing to have sex, then this person is not really concerned about the partner’s (A) well-being. Sex can be addictive. If you’re addicted to sex, you need to break this habit and learn a new one: this is sexual self-control. It’s definitely possible to do so, and there are great rewards. ~~ Love wants what is best for the other person. ~~ Love never puts anyone at unnecessary risk of pregnancy (outside marriage), disease, or heartache. ~~ Love is giving for the total good of another. ~~ Love – true love – always looks out for other people’s emotional, physical, intellectual, and moral well-being. If you are involved in a sexual relationship and want to stop, you need to develop cessation skills. Cessation skills set guidelines that help a person regain self-control by abstaining from a particular behavior, such as premarital sex, drug use, viewing pornography, or violence. The following cessation skills can help you regain sexual self-control: 1. Give reasons for your decision. Examples: • I want to feel more self-respect instead of feeling used. • It’s straining my relationship with friends and family members. • The health risks are too high. • I never really know the sexual history of another person. 2. Reinforce the decision by your behavior. • Avoid places and people that cause you to slip. • Body language can give a strong NO message. • Don’t flirt with the unhealthy behavior, thinking you’re strong...

Why does it Hurt So Bad?

Why would it hurt so much if your best friend betrayed you? (gossiped; dated your best friend; told your deep secrets…) Because you trusted your friend, and invested so much of your life (time, effort, attention) in that person. Because you shared so much… Because your trust in that person is broken now.   You realize that you are not respected by the very person you respected. You realize that this person is not as honorable, honest, respectful, and trustworthy as you thought… You had invested a great deal in the relationship and you lost it all… and that's why it hurts so bad…     If you haven't had sex outside marriage, don't.

Comparing Two Lifestyles

Summary: Many times, homosexual relationships are touted as being no different than ordinary married couples. But research shows that in several key respects, the homosexual lifestyle differs radically from other types of relationships.    Comparing the Lifestyles of Homosexual Couples to Married Couples     by: Timothy J. Dailey, Ph. D. …Are homosexual households…simply another variant of human relationships that should be considered, along with marriage, as "part of mainstream American society"? On the contrary, the evidence indicates that "committed" homosexual relationships are radically different from married couples in several key respects: ·  relationship duration ·  monogamy vs. promiscuity ·  relationship commitment ·  number of children being raised ·  health risks ·  rates of intimate partner violence Finally, this paper will present evidence from homosexual activists themselves indicating that behind the push for homosexual marriage lies a political agenda to radically change the institution of marriage itself. RELATIONSHIP DURATION …activists often point to high divorce rates and claim that married couples fare little better than homosexuals with regard to the duration of their relationships. The research, however, indicates that male homosexual relationships last only a fraction of the length of most marriages. Married Couples ·  A 2001 National Center for Health Statistics study on marriage and divorce statistics reported that 66 percent of first marriages last ten years or longer, with fifty percent lasting twenty years or longer.[2] Male Homosexual Relationships The 2003-2004 Gay/Lesbian Consumer Online Census surveyed the lifestyles of 7,862 homosexuals. Of those involved in a "current relationship," only 15 percent describe their current relationship as having lasted twelve years or longer, with five percent lasting more than twenty years.[4] While...

Major Study Finds New Evidence That Childhood Family Factors Influence Sexual Orientation (10/06)

[Peer-reviewed journal, Archives of Sexual Behavior 10/06] It provides striking new evidence for the influence of childhood family factors on sexual-orientation development. The 12-year study used a population-based sample of 2,000,355 native-born Danes between the ages of 18 and 49. Denmark — a country noted for its tolerance of a wide variety of alternative lifestyles, including homosexual partnerships — was the first country to legalize homosexual "marriage". The study found that men who did not live with both parents until age 18 were 56%-76% more likely to "marry" another man. The researchers Morten Frisch and Anders Hviid conclude by saying, "Whatever ingredients determine a person's sexual preferences and marital choices, our population-based study shows that parental interactions are important." Notice they didn't say "parental genes" were important but family structures. [FRC, 13Dec06] The researchers assessed detailed marriage records for all Danish-born men and women marrying a same-sex partner from the years 1989 through 2001. With access to the "virtually complete registry coverage of the entire Danish population," the study sample therefore lacked the problematic selection bias that has plagued many previous studies on sexual orientation. Parental Influences on Sexual Orientation Development The authors conclude: "Our study provides population-based, prospective evidence that childhood family experiences are important determinants of heterosexual and homosexual marriage decisions in adulthood." Assuming that people who marry heterosexually are almost always heterosexual — especially in a country where homosexuality carries little stigma, and gay marriage is legal — and people who marry homosexually can be presumed to be homosexual, the study's findings offer intriguing evidence about family factors separating homosexual from heterosexual persons. The following are findings from...

Boys from Single-Parent Homes Have Sex Earlier (CDC, 6/06)

A CDC report shows importance of keeping families intact. A Centers for Disease Control report (6/06) shows boys from single-parent households are much more likely to have sex by age 15 than boys who live in two-parent families. The CDC study, which interviewed nearly 5,000 males aged 15-44, focused on their sexual attitudes and behavior. It found that 1-in-4 boys from single-parent households were likely to have sex, compared to 1-in-7 in two-parent households. Janice Shaw Crouse of Concerned Women for America says the latest report "confirms what we already know…While most single parents work hard to meet their children's needs and many are able to beat the odds, single-parent households put children from babies through teens at risk for a broad spectrum of problems," she said. Crouse — author of CWA's Data Digests, a quarterly publication that report on social science data and its impact on children, women and families — pointed out, however, the authors of the study downplayed the basic finding of the report. That is, she said, that boys of single-parents are more likely to have sex even though they are uncertain or don't want to. "But the truth is that children need a father's presence and influence," she said. "Father-absence is a major contributing factor to many of the social problems afflicting the nation's children." Other findings include: — More than a quarter of the white males and over 40 percent of the black males were either uncertain or did not want to have intercourse the first time they had sex.   — About half of the men who did not graduate from high...

The scientists are on the faculty of the Center for Cognitive Neurosciences, and their research was supported by the National Institutes of Health. The researchers began with what they called the "modulation hypothesis," which holds that the brain's emotional and memory centers interact to form emotional memories–and in the case of emotionally powerful events, may then form what they call an "indelible emotional resonance." These "emotional memories," note the researchers, are more strongly encoded in...

Is Your Girlfriend Under the Age of 16?

Having Sex With Her May Put You in Prison The State of Alabama has laws that make having sex with a girl under 16 a crime. You need to know this. Important Information for Males About Consensual Sex and the Law in Alabama from the AL Department of Human Resources   Having sex with a girl under 16 is considered RAPE if the male is at least 16 years old and at least 2 years older than the female.   Even if she agreed to have sex; even if she initiated the sex… If you have sex with her, you are guilty.   Rape Penalties The penalty for having sex with a minor could be up to 20 years in prison.    If the girl is younger than 12, you could go to prison for the rest of your life. Your name could also be placed on the state's list of sexual offenders. This list is available to anyone who wants to look at it and can be found on the internet.

Sex: What Do Women (and Men) Really Want?

Today it is estimated that half of newly married couples cohabited prior to marriage. In the 2000 Census, there were 5.5 million cohabiting unmarried couples (up from 3.2 million in 1990).10 Given these facts, are people happier? Does this behavior aid growth in emotional or sexual maturity? Does it make people more generous or better able to persevere in difficult situations? What impact does this behavior have on marriage and family life? Are those who have multiple sexual partners better able to form lasting relationships? Better prepared to put the needs of loved ones above their own desires? Research provides answers to many of these questions.11 Over 25 percent of sexually active teenage girls 14-17 report being depressed all, most or "a lot" of the time, a rate of depression more than three times that of teenage girls who are not sexually active (7.7 percent).12 Sexually active boys 14-17 report being depressed all, most or a lot of the time at a rate 2 times greater than boys who are not sexually active (8.3 percent vs. 3.4 percent). "A full 14.3 percent of girls who are sexually active report having attempted suicide [in the past 12 months]. By contrast, only 5.1 percent of sexually inactive girls have attempted suicide."13 The contrast between sexually active boys (6.0 percent of whom attempted suicide in the past 12 months) and boys who were not sexually active (0.7 percent) is even greater – almost 8 times higher. Do teens regret having become sexually active? 72% of sexually active girls and 55% of sexually active boys said they wished they had waited longer before...

Contraceptive Sex Education: Most Harmful/Wasteful Government Programs Revealed / SBCs (2001, 4/06)

In a posted piece on Human Events Online, an annual top ten list of the most wasteful government programs was given. Ranked number 5 was the federal funding of contraceptive distribution programs in so-called “family-planning” clinics, like Planned Parenthood. Thanks to a 1977 Supreme Court decision, businesses like Planned Parenthood can give contraception paid for with federal funds to minors under 16 years old without parental consent. 38 public policy experts and scholars, including Dick Armey, Charles Baird, Allan Carlson, Michelle Easton, and more nominated and selected the list of disappointing federal programs for this year’s 4th annual report. [Human Events Online, “The Ten Most Harmful Government Programs,” 04/10/06, http://www.humaneventsonline.com/article.php?id=13885; Abstinence Clearinghouse E-Mail Update 04/12/06]     Ed.: Here is another reason to distrust comprehensive sex education programs and everything associated with them. This is a 2001 article, and already there were 1135 School Based 'Clinics' in our public schools. These are often channels for promoting sex among teens and 'tweens', and for abortion referrals, when contraception "fails" and pregnancy results… and then, of course, there is the pesky problem of sexually transmitted diseases that seem to pop up much too often when anyone, much less teens, gets involved in risky sexual activity…   According to a 1998-99 survey conducted by the National Assembly of School-Based Health Care (NASBHC), currently 1135 “clinics” operate in schools, an increase from only 200 in 1989. 63% are in urban areas, 26% in rural areas, and only 11% in suburban areas. Of these, 33% are found in elementary schools, 38% in high schools, and 16% in middle schools. Most SBCs promote condoms to...

Kinsey's Consequences

Kinsey. America has become the unsuspecting victim of his sexual revolution bomb. Before launching into his “research” on human sexuality, Dr. Alfred Kinsey was a confirmed atheist, eugenicist and evolutionist who believed that “religious-based,” “ancient taboos” were to blame for America’s supposedly repressive sexual attitudes and resulting social disorder. The worst harm has come to our children… The unsuspecting victim of Kinsey’s sexual revolution bomb, America respected fatherhood, motherhood and marriage, and protected its children. Kinsey saw any sexual taboo as abnormal repression and set out, by using science, to break down those barriers to sexual “freedom.” He used and abused science much as the South Korean researcher Hwang did by claiming to have achieved human embryonic stem cell lines. Ideas and Their Consequences Ideas always have consequences, and Kinsey’s ideas surely caused irreparable harm to men, women and families; but the worst harm has come to our children. Kinsey, through flawed interviewing techniques, skewed sampling, and abuse of children, “discovered” that children are sexual from birth, can give “consent” to sex, and are even “helped” by sexual encounters with adults. His findings changed laws concerning human sexuality and gave rise to unprecedented sexual “freedom.” To illustrate how far we have come: The Kansas Supreme Court recently opined that the state does not have an interest in legislating morality – including bestiality, polygamy, incest, etc. This came on the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision stating that the right to privacy trumps sodomy laws. This is a far cry from the stringent laws in territorial Kansas and early statehood that protected women and children from rape, sodomy and...

Hepatitis A Vaccine Approved by FDA (12/05)

FDA APPROVAL OF HAVRIX® (Hepatitis A Vaccine, Inactivated) for Persons Aged 1–18 Years. On 17Oct05, the Food and Drug Administration approved an application to allow use of the pediatric/adolescent formulation of Havrix® (hepatitis A vaccine, inactivated) (GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, Rixensart, Belgium) for persons aged 1–18 years. Previously, pediatric use of Havrix was approved for use in persons aged 2–18 years. The formulation, dosage, and schedule for Havrix were not changed. Each 0.5-mL dose of pediatric/adolescent Havrix contains 720 enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay units of formalin-inactivated hepatitis A viral antigen adsorbed onto aluminum hydroxide. The pediatric/adolescent formulation of Havrix is indicated for vaccination of persons aged 1–18 years against disease caused by hepatitis A virus. Recommendations for hepatitis A vaccination have been published previously (1) and are periodically updated. The primary vaccination schedule is unchanged and consists of 2 doses, administered on a 0, 6–12-month schedule. In a study presented as part of the labeling change application, 99% of 218 children aged 11–13 months and 100% of 200 children aged 15–18 months who received 2 doses of Havrix developed a vaccine response. According to general recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, inactivated vaccines usually do not interfere with the immune response to other inactivated or live vaccines (2).

Condoms, Teens, and Sex: Reality Check (en espanol tambien)

Condones, adolescentes y el sexo. Una visión a la realidad. There has been a major push for “Safe Sex” in America for at least 30 years. Parents have been pressed to believe that handing their children condoms and chemical birth control is the American way. “Teens are just not capable of controlling their urges” we’ve been told. Yet, through it all, teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (STD/STI) have sky-rocketed. About 900,000 U.S. teen pregnancies occur every year, and of the estimated 18.9 million new STD cases in 2000, 9.1 million (48% – almost half) were among 15- to 24-year-olds. Ha habido un empujón mayor en Norte América para implementar la idea de” el Sexo Seguro” los últimos 30 años. Los padres de familia han sido presionados a creer que la manera americana es darles condones y anticonceptivos a sus hijos adolescentes  Nos han dicho que ”los adolescentes no son capaces de controlar sus impulsos” Todavía, por todo, el embarazo en las jovencitas y las enfermedades sexualmente transmitidas alcanzan cifras por las nubes. Cerca de 900.000 embarazos en adolescentes ocurren cada año y se ha estimado que 18.9 millones de nuevas enfermedades de transmisión sexual (ETS) ocurrieron en el año 2000, 9.1 millones (48%) casi la mitad de ellas fueron en jóvenes entre 15 y 24 años. La anticoncepción química ( llámese la píldora, la inyección, el parche, la anticoncepción de emergencia) no funcionan para prevenir las ETS.

Sexual Abstinence. Worth the Wait!! (tambien en espanol)

Abstinencia sexual ¡Vale la pena esperar!! There are many consequences of sexual activity outside marriage. Abortion is one such consequence. About 80% of all U.S. abortions are performed on unmarried women. Many women suffer physical and/or emotional complications from abortion. Abortion hurts women. Abortion is not an easy solution to a "problem" pregnancy. Abortion lasts forever. Hay muchas consecuencias de la actividad sexual fuera del matrimonio. Una de ellas es el aborto. Alrededor de 80% de los abortos son ejecutados en mujeres solteras. Muchas mujeres sufren complicaciones físicas y emocionales después de un aborto. El aborto lastima  la mujer. El aborto no es una solución fácil al “problema del embarazo.” El aborto es para siempre.       Abortion Memories do Not Fade with the Sunset   El “sexo seguro” solamente reduce el riesgo de embarazo y de contagio de las enfermedades de transmisión sexual (ETS), no lo elimina. Cuando los adolescentes y los adultos jóvenes empiezan actividad sexual a lo largo del tiempo, los riesgos de embarazo y adquisición de ETS, Incluyendo el SIDA aumentan, aun usando el condón. La propaganda de sexo seguro al usar el condón, ha incrementado la actividad sexual prematura, ya que crea una falsa seguridad en las mentes de los jóvenes. Safe or "safer" sex only reduces the risk of pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs); it does not eliminate the risk. As teens & young adults engage in sexual activities over time – even with condoms, the chances of pregnancy and STDs – including HIV/AIDS – increase. Promoting condom use as "safe sex" has increased sexual activity because it creates a false...
