Quotes to Note

Advocates of "safe sex" – those with the idea of giving away condoms to students at school – must face the fact that there is no condom for the brain or heart.

For them, the only negative consequences of teen sex they seem to care about are the physical dangers (and even then, with the high failure rate of condoms kids are never fully protected from either disease or pregnancy).

What about the emotional and psychological dangers?

Heritage Senior analyst Robert Rector explains that the consequences of teen-sex are felt for a lifetime:

"Sexual activity by teens has both short-term and long-term negative psychological effects.

"Sexual activity disputes their ability to develop loving, intimate and committed relationships and thereby creates great unhappiness in later life."

Why don't groups like Planned Parenthood, etc., care about that?

The only way to truly protect kids from damaging their complete health -- and to have the best chance for strong life-long commitment -- is to teach them to wait until marriage.

[Sex, sadness and suicide, Heritage Fdn., 3Jun03; data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health, 1996, for the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and 17 other federal agencies. The in-home survey (given with parental permission) interviewed 6,500 people 14-17 years old]

Why Abstinence? Why Should I Control My Hormones?
How do I control my hormones?
How can I say NO?
Have you heard these?
If you are feeling...

 

 

HAVE YOU HEARD THESE "SAME OLD LINES"?

 

Don't FALL for the Lines!
Stand for Yourself or you will Fall for any body...
 

 

These are just a few sample comebacks. Practice saying them or similar responses, in front of a mirror (for eye contact practice).

"If you really loved me, you’d have sex with me"

If you really loved me, you wouldn’t pressure me!

"I thought you loved me!" 

I do, but I thought you respected me!

"Everybody’s doing it" 

That’s not true. I’m not ‘doing it’ and I’m somebody. OR Well, I’m not everybody. There ARE lots of people getting pregnant or getting AIDS or other STDs. There should be plenty of people you can do it with, but I don’t want to be a statistic!            OR - I can become like everybody else anytime I want to; but they can never again become like me.

"Don’t you trust me?" 

Marriage is built on trust. Do you want to marry me right now?

"I think you owe it to me" I don’t owe you anything.

"We might not get another chance." 

If you really loved me, you wouldn’t ask me to take chances.

  "It’s the only way to prove you’re a man/woman!"                                 

I don’t have to prove anything to you!

"If you won’t do it, I’ll find someone who will." 

If that’s all I mean to you, then you should find someone else, because I'm looking for someone to love me for me, not their own pleasure with my body.

"You can’t get pregnant the first time!"                                                

YOU won’t, that’s for sure; but I could!

"If you get pregnant, I’ll marry you."                                                    

Why wait? Let’s get married now!

"I love you so much, I want to give you more!" 

GREAT! Give me your self-control!

 

Use your will not the pill

 

 

Some creative ways to say NO!

Is that all you think about?

I feel like I may be getting the flu!

Not until I’m married. It’s past my curfew.

My parents are waiting up.

I just got my hair done.

I’m too tired.

I have to get up early in the morning.

I have sunburn.

I have a headache.

I feel nauseated.

I said NO and I mean it!      

I’m hungry.    

I don’t love you.

I don’t want our relationship to be just about sex.

I want to be loved, not make love.

I don’t want to be worrying about getting pregnant or getting an STD.

How about going to... (a movie, get something to eat, the baseball game, get our portrait made) or bake cookies instead?

No  -  Nein  -  Non  -  Nyet

Nyet is Russian for NO

NO is a love word

Go for NO

      The best birth control is              self-control

Purity Protects

SET the Limits – 

Don’t PUSH the Limits…

[Teen-Aid]
