When I attended public school many years ago, America was still considered to be a Christian nation and many Christian values and morals were taught in the public schools. When it came to sex education, we were taught that sex was sacred between a husband and wife and the only way to avoid sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies was to abstain from having sex outside of marriage.
We were also taught to respect others, respect our nation and leaders, respect and obey our parents and to put the needs of others ahead of our own needs and desires. America wasn’t a utopia, but as a nation and a people we were a lot better off than we are now.
It all changed in the mid-1960s when a few whining atheists took their complaints to the US Supreme Court. The high court turned on American’s Christian heritage and values and threw God, the Bible, Jesus and everything Christian, out of our public schools and many other facets of public life.
However, any scientist will tell you that a vacuum cannot exist in an open system. In other words, when God, the Bible, Jesus and Christianity are removed, they create a social vacuum that is quickly filled. In America, that vacuum was filled with self-centered, hedonistic, perverse godless values and the consequences have been quite devastating.
Many forms of violent crimes began to increase in the absence of God and Christianity. Promiscuous and adulterous sex also became more prevalent, along with sexually transmitted diseases. The number of unwed pregnancies also increased, leading to the legalization of murdering unborn babies.
Organizations like Planned Parenthood developed sex education courses to be taught in the public schools. Their programs went along with the liberal agendas of those running the public schools. They taught sex was okay as long one takes precautions against catching or spreading sexually transmitted diseases, especially AIDS. If school girls got pregnant, Planned Parenthood was right there to perform an abortion and just get rid of the problem.
Reports are now surfacing that indicate that these liberally and promiscuously based sex education programs have been failures in their declared missions. One such study reported by the global independent network organization, Cochrane. Per their website:
“Cochrane is for anyone who is interested in using high-quality information to make health decisions. Whether you are a doctor or nurse, patient or carer, researcher or funder, Cochrane evidence provides a powerful tool to enhance your healthcare knowledge and decision making.”
“We are a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health.”
“Cochrane contributors – 37,000 from more than 130 countries – work together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest. Many of our contributors are world leaders in their fields – medicine, health policy, research methodology, or consumer advocacy – and our groups are situated in some of the world’s most respected academic and medical institutions. Contact us for more information.”
“Our work is recognized as representing an international gold standard for high quality, trusted information.”
The purpose of the study was:
“To evaluate the effects of school-based sexual and reproductive health programmes on sexually transmitted infections (such as HIV, herpes simplex virus, and syphilis), and pregnancy among adolescents.”
In their conclusion, the authors stated:
“There is little evidence that educational curriculum-based programmes alone are effective in improving sexual and reproductive health outcomes for adolescents.”
The study found no evidence to show that the promiscuous programs have reduced sexually transmitted diseases including HIV nor do they curb unwanted teen pregnancies.
Valerie Huber, President and CEO of Ascend, was not surprised at the outcome of the findings. Per their website:
“Ascend champions youth to make healthy decisions in relationship and life promoting well-being through a primary prevention strategy, and as a national membership and advocacy organization that serves, leads, represents and equips the Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) field.”
Referring to the Cochrane study, Huber commented:
“We’ve known for a long time what the best health message (abstinence) is for young people, and we’re getting more and more details that they’re resonating with that and that the opposite message (safe sex) is having the opposite effect.”
“I’m hopeful that this research study, the HHS study, and others that seem to be suggesting similar results will push the pause buttons.”
The only truly successful way to prevent teen pregnancies and contracting sexually transmitted diseases is to abstain from all sex until one is married. Then and only then should anyone engage in sex. It’s the only form of safe sex there is. That’s the way God intended it to be.
