Bogus "Crisis" of Teen Sex

The Teen Birth Rate in America has declined since the 1950's to the point that it is at an all time low. Yet, the "Safe Sex-only" Cartels, including Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, Advocates for Youth, Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and the ACLU, are determined to fabricate a crisis so that they can justify mandating "Safe Sex-only" Education to all school age children. "Safe Sex-only" propaganda is the norm, but CDC data paints another picture…abstinence education works and this fact is creating hope for future generations.

Have you heard about the Teen Birth Rate Crisis in America? We can't let a good crisis go to waste! Let's teach all kids about condoms, contraception and "Safe Sex"!

Don't panic folks. The current crisis is fabricated to promote a "Safe-Sex" and sex without boundaries agenda. Over the past 2 decades, the so called national "crisis" has been addressed, at least for now, by teaching smart teens and their savvy parents about the science-based benefits of abstinence from all sexual activity until marriage.

Notice the steep downward trend in teen birth rates (graph insert) beginning in the nineties for all age groups? That's when Abstinence Education programs were first federally funded and monitored and that's when Welfare Reform began. "Safe Sex-only" programs have continued unabatedly receiving even more funding each and every year for more than forty years.

The initiation of Abstinence Education is the only variable that changed during those years.

Still not convinced that Abstinence Education works? No wonder. The media has done a lopsided job of convincing you that all teens will have sex and therefore "Safe Sex-only" programs MUST BE MANDATED. Even now the "Safe Sex-perts" want to take credit for bringing those teen birth rates down with condoms, contraception and "Safe Sex".

I beg to differ.

The CDC has released national data for the past 2 years consistently revealing that 72% of teens, 17 and younger, have not been sexually active. Since this is the same age group that abstinence educators typically teach, any reasonable person would admit that Abstinence Education Works!

Last week, the CDC provided data showing that the unwed teen birthrate is not the real problem.

"This is because teens account for only a small portion of unwed births, especially if only considering high school girls. While less than 8 percent of unwed births are to girls under 18, nearly 75 percent are to women between 18 and 29."

Only 8%, not 80%, of unwed births are to teens under 18 years old! Who knew?

Most parents of teens have never known a day without "Safe Sex-only" Education. They are targeted by Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and the ACLU with fear-based messages that their kids will have sex and there is nothing they can do about it but teach them the same. The definition of insanity comes to mind.

Don't be duped into letting your child be taught "Safe Sex-only" Education!

A Real Crisis to get angry about is the defunding of Abstinence Education by the current administration so that another generation suffers. Even worse, the "Safe Sex-only" Cartels do not want teens to abstain. They want teens to be taught the pleasures of sex. What will happen to teen sexual initiation rates and pregnancy rates when "Safe Sex" is the only message rather than abstinence?

That's the Real Crisis.
