STD rampant among teenagers

The CDC announced that at least one in four teenage American girls has a sexually transmitted disease. Only about half of the girls in the study acknowledged having sex. This could be because many don’t include intimate behavior such as oral sex. Thank Bill Clinton for that. Of the girls that admitted to having sex, the infection rate was 40 percent.

The proaborts and the birth control lobby claim that the problem is from teaching abstinence. It sounds to me like the problem is the failure of teaching abstinence effectively.

The condom evangelists claim that the disease problem would be solved with a great condom give away. Safe sex has been their mantra.

The facts are contrary. The following is from the book Epidemic, written by Meg Meeker M.D.

The conclusion of one study was that while male latex condoms could reduce the transmission of HIV/AIDS, there was not enough evidence to determine that they were effective in reducing the risk of most other sexually transmitted diseases.

Another study showed that “condoms have no impact on the risk of sexual transmission of human papilloma virus (HPV) in women.”
Looking at the facts leads me to conclude that the message of safe sex has been a scam. The science shows that condoms do not protect one from disease. It makes me wonder about the motives of the condom evangelists. Could they be completely ignorant of research that contradicts their position or do they have social revolt as their goal.
