Obama Admin Finally Admits Abstinence is the Best Way to Avoid Sexually Transmitted Diseases (2015)

When it comes to self-control, the government has a hard enough time practicing it — let alone promoting it! That’s why last week’s announcement from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) was so important. After years of burying its head in the sand and throwing billions of dollars at an STD problem it helped create, the government finally admitted what … common sense made abundantly clear: abstinence and monogamy are the only ways to avoid disease. In its 2015 “Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment Guidelines,” a two-word change made all the difference. Five years ago, the CDC used to say abstinence and monogamy were “a reliable way to avoid disease.” As of last Friday, the agency agrees it’s “the most reliable way”. [ http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/06/05/federal-government-shifts-now-says-monogamy-abstinence-most-reliable-protections-against-stds/ ] That may not seem like a radical edit to most people, but in this administration, moral purity is as foreign a concept as political transparency. For years, FRC and other groups have fought the spread — not just of infection and disease — but of the mentality that sexual liberalism should be promoted in schools, prioritized in health care, and paid for by taxpayers. As a result, the government is spending $16 billion a year cleaning up the mess it helped make with the “if-it-feels-good-do-it” approach. With more than 20 million new cases of STDs cropping up every year, America’s biggest health crisis may be the one nobody’s talking about. A monster strain of gonorrhea is spreading, and experts say it might be worse than AIDS. That explosion, along with the spike in chlamydia infections, syphilis, HIV, Hepatitis, and herpes is panicking the medical community,...

Only 45% said that their relationships were monogamous, while another 8% disagreed about whether their relationship was “open” or exclusive, according to an ongoing study by the Center or Research on Gender & Sexuality at San Francisco State University. The Gay Couples Study said that the couples interviewed typically put a positive spin on “open” relationships, with three out of four participants describing non-monogamous agreements as "positive" because it eliminates the need to lie to one's partner. The authors also claimed that, "we found that couples make sexual agreements because they want to build a strong relationship rather than for HIV protection." “With straight people, it’s called affairs or cheating,” according to Colleen Hoff, the lead researcher for the Gay Couples Study,...

April 2008: Marriage & Family

Poll: Young Americans Revere Monogamy The Incontrovertible Facts About Fathers… POLL: YOUNG AMERICANS REVERE MONOGAMY. Young Americans have a reverence for national institutions, traditions and family values, a U.S. survey indicates. A survey of so-called "millennials" — those between 21 and 29 — revealed the group overwhelmingly said they support monogamy, marriage, the U.S. Constitution and the military, The Washington Times reported Sunday. "We were completely surprised. There has been a faulty portrayal of millennials by the media — television, films, news, blogs, everything. These people are not the self-entitled, coddled slackers they're made out to be. Misnomers and myths about them are all over the place," said Ann Mack, who directed the survey and is the official "director of trend-spotting" at J. Walter Thompson, the nation's largest advertising agency. In addition to indicating 94 percent of millennials respect monogamy and parenthood and 84 percent revere marriage, the survey found 88 percent said they respect the U.S. Constitution, 84 percent respect the military and more than three-quarters believe in the "American dream." The survey of 1,250 adults was conducted online throughout January. No margin of error was reported. [March 30, 2008, Washington, UPI]     THE INCONTROVERTIBLE FACTS ABOUT FATHERS. This should be the final word –– 24 scholarly studies covering 22,300 separate sets of data published in the 20 years between 1987 and 2007 report essentially the same finding: active fathers are absolutely essential in preventing behavioral problems with boys and psychological problems in girls. With such a massive body of evidence the debate ought to be over and the findings established beyond question. Policymakers ought to make...

The Two Become One: The Role of Oxytocin and Vasopression

And the Two Shall Become One …A study of the human biochemistry associated with sexual intercourse suggests there is nothing casual about human sexuality. The delicate biochemistry of the human person seems to be designed and ordered to respond to intercourse by forming exclusive, intimate, stable pair-bonds that favor permanency… Though marital unity and indissolubility may perhaps seem ideal but unrealistic and even unappealing to contemporary culture, scientific research is beginning to uncover that the physiology of the person may actually be ordered to it. Sexual intercourse appears to be a threshold at which man and woman enter into a new relationship that is biochemically oriented toward staying together, geared toward their unity as a couple. Animals often serve as models for human beings in scientific research, especially in the testing of medicines and experimental medical procedures. For example, as a mammal, the mouse can be compared in numerous respects to humans and is therefore routinely used in laboratories. The same holds true for the modeling of some aspects of human behavior, though there are some very significant differences which must be acknowledged at the outset. Unlike animals, man possesses free will. Thus, while animal behavior generally follows immediately from interior biochemical signals, in man the process is far more complex. Human behavior is not only influenced by our biochemistry, but our biochemistry can be also directly influenced by our freely chosen behaviors. With this in mind, we can learn something significant about sex and monogamy by turning to the animal world. Biochemistry and Pair-Bonding Chemicals released during intercourse, such as oxytocin and vasopressin, introduce a unique effect that...

Higher Abstinence Rates in Many African Nations than in USA (9/04)

No one can deny that HIV/AIDS is an epidemic in Africa. What can be questioned is how the world should deal with the crisis. Recent studies pour water on the fire of contraception distributors across the globe who promote the myth that Africans are unable to abstain from sex and are, therefore, in dire need of condoms. The recent uproar surrounding President Bush’s decision to fund abstinence education efforts in Africa may soon be but a quiet whisper as studies reporting incredibly high rates of abstinence in many African nations begin to circulate… For Abstinence Research and Studies, click here. You don’t have to have a federal grant to teach abstinence until marriage. You don’t have to tell them about your past; just tell them how to protect their future! Teach your tweens and teens how to eliminate the risks by abstaining from sexual activity. They want to hear from you… Recent reports from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Division of Health Studies reveal the following: In Rwanda, 94 percent of 15-19 year old boys practiced abstinence (DHS 2000). In Ethiopia, 90 percent of males ages 15-19 were abstinent (DHS 2000). In Ghana, 85 percent of males ages 15-19 practiced abstinence (DHS 1998). In Nigeria, 83 percent of males ages 15-19 were abstinent (DHS 2003). In Zimbabwe, 78 percent of males ages 15-19 practiced abstinence. Estimates for Uganda‘s young men are roughly 78 percent. Surveys have also shown that monogamy rates in many African nations are higher than previously thought. Those who are sexually active usually have only one partner, most often a spouse. This data...
