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”.

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,...

What do Teens say?

Over 90% of 1000 teens polled believe that abstinence should be taught and urged by society. Also, 58% of teens felt that sexual activity is inappropriate for high school students. [The Indianapolis Star 5 May 2000 reported findings from National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy; from 6/2000 CPR News] Parents, read Amelia’s story. She explains why she is holding fast to her pledge of abstinence, as her friends give up theirs… Her words provide a good insight into our present age. “Last year I signed a card that showed the world that I would remain a virgin until marriage. I’m only 14, and even being so young, the temptations are great. Along with me my friends also signed a card. I know that, to many of them, this was a big deal and to some it was just something they could do to be more popular. The ones that did it to be popular broke their promises, and when you ask them why, they say it was just too hard. Many of them go out and party and get drunk, and it’s all downhill from there. “After seeing what they are doing to themselves, I strive to keep my promise to myself and not only for myself but for them also because I want to show them that it is possible. “I urge anyone who reads this that maybe has already broken their promise to get another card and check the box that says ‘from this point on I will stay sexually abstinent.’ I believe that good things come to those who wait, and that the greatest thing you...
