Abortion

Abortion What is Abortion? Abortion refers to the unnatural termination of a pregnancy resulting in fetal demise (death). Miscarriage is more accurately referred to as a ‘Spontaneous Abortion’.

Abstinence

Abstinence What is Abstinence? Abstinence means to abstain or avoid something, in this case, sexual activity. Sexual Abstinence protects young people from physical and emotional short and long-term adverse effects of promiscuous sex outside monogamy. It also teaches self-discipline, patience, and the ability to wait for something desired in order to achieve future goals. This helps to protect young people from the social and moral erosion of self-centeredness and immediate gratification. This section includes many illustrative studies on these points. It also provides insight to learn how we can respond to help our young people stay afloat in the sex-saturated world society in which we live today. Lesson plans, demonstrations, and instructive avoidance skills are included for those who want to help young people learn why their sexuality is important, and how to protect it.

Birth Control

Birth Control What is Birth Control? Birth control is the control or prevention of the birth of children who may or may not already be conceived. Some methods of birth control are barrier methods which actually prevent sperm from entering the female reproductive system and therefore cannot fertilize the egg if it has been released. Intrauterine devices (IUD) are also barriers, but are barriers to the implantation of the developing embryo in the uterus, and therefore, they are abortifacient (cause abortions) by their nature. Methods of chemical birth control can either have no effect because ovulation has not yet occurred, prevent ovulation, thicken cervical mucus to prevent sperm from fertilizing the egg, or prevent the implantation of the developing embryo in the uterus 6-10 days after fertilization. Barrier and chemical methods of birth control are discussed in detail in this section, as are the adverse effects and potential consequences of their use. Many women and couples intend to avoid conception; most do not realize the abortifacient potential of many chemical birth control methods, or of IUDs. Also included in this section are history and types of birth control, legal action, present-day research on natural, ecologically-approved methods, and permanent birth control – sterilization.

Cloning /Artificial Conception

Artificial Conception / Cloning What is Artificial Conception? Most of us are familiar with IVF, In Vitro Fertilization, which is a means to help couples have children, by artificially implanting the woman with a tiny embryo to achieve pregnancy. Worldwide, there are millions of human embryos frozen in time because so many extra embryos have been produced by IVF labs. After a number of years, these human embryos are thawed and destroyed. At this time, there is very little, if any, state or national oversight of the IVF industry. Besides cloning, many experimental projects are taking place worldwide. Some projects seek to find ways to correct genetic code sequences which cause human abnormalities. Others ignore the ageless wisdom which states “Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should” and instead, seek to try any and all experiments on human embryos including 3 parent mixtures, animal-human mixtures, and so forth, in the supposed name of scientific research. This category is not as ‘active’ as others. Not as much is published for two reasons: cloning has many significant problems which have not been corrected, and since many experiments are of a more ‘rogue’ nature, they usually maintain a cover to avoid unwanted publicity. What is Cloning? The attempt to produce absolutely identical living animals or humans by manipulation of the fertilized egg cell or zygote. Basically, a stem cell nucleus is implanted into the patient’s egg cell after removing its nucleus. The first successful clone was Dolly the Sheep. A major long-term problem that has been found is that cloned animals age quite rapidly. A major ethical issue with...
