ABSTINENCE= MORE SEX? ABSURD!


On Wednesday, government statisticians said the teen birth rate rose 3 percent from 2005 to 2006. It is the first increase in fifteen years and people are seeking answers. Here is an amazing quote from U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo;

"Congress needs to stop knee-jerk approving abstinence-only funding when it's clear it's not working."

It truly makes you wonder how people can get elected, who think this way. Would it not make sense that abstinence only is the surest, purest, most definite way to keep from being pregnant? Abstinence works 100% of the time it is practiced, it never fails, by definition. But Rep. DeGette seems to not understand this very simple fact. There is nothing said by her about the fact that condoms are being used now more than they ever have been in the last fifteen years. I would advocate there is your problem. It is not the abstinence only teaching, but rather teenagers having sex and believing the lie that condoms will prevent pregnancies all of the time.

It would seem to me the facts would indicate and drive you to question the teachings of Planned Parenthood and others who would push for kids to have "safe sex", using condoms and other birth control methods. If the teen birth rate has gone up it cannot be abstinence teaching that is at fault, but rather the safe sex lies that kids are told by adults who should know better. Be warned, in the coming days you will hear abstinence only education under attack. As it is, watch and see all of the apparently educated people who will jump on the bandwagon. With all of their education they will, with a straight face, say the problem is we are teaching kids to abstain from sex totally, and because of that the teen birth rate went up! And the moon is made of cheese, the earth is flat, and Hillary Clinton would make a good President!
