Raising the Behavior Bar III


The Add Health study overwhelmingly confirms the foundational principle of ABSTINENCE-ONLY Education while placing in serious question the tenants of the 'comprehensive' sex education ideology.

This study fully vindicates Congress, who in great wisdom, authorized funding for the Abstinence-Only message [1996].

This study places a great burden on various health department officials (state and national) who are  subverting the clear intent of Congress to promote abstinence until marriage.

This study, more importantly, goes a long way to resolving the debate over the type of sexuality education most appropriate for the health of young Americans.

This study provides strong evidence that the rise of privately funded Abstinence-Only programs is greatly responsible for the statistical decreases since 1990 of teen sexual activity, teen pregnancy, and teen abortion.

There is no doubt that the Add Health study should be a serious blow to the 'comprehensive' sex philosophy that has its roots in the 'free sex' revolution of the 1960s.

Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Upheld By Ohio Federal Court PDF Print E-mail

The 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has upheld the Ohio Partial-Birth Abortion Ban.

Recently, the U. S. Congress passed and President Bush signed a ban on this ghastly procedure which is now being challenged in federal courts. Perhaps the Appeals Court ruling will lend support to the federal ban. But, the two laws have a significant difference.

The Ohio law has a so-called "health exception," allowing the procedure to be performed when the woman's health is in danger. The federal ban does not because pro-life Members of Congress rightly felt that the exception would devour the rule in the hands of dishonest abortionists. Instead, the federal ban includes medical findings showing this procedure, is not only never needed to protect a woman's health, it can potentially be very dangerous. Obviously, the battle to defend the unborn is far from over.
