What percentage of US teens (15-17) are having sex? Most people will say over 50%, if not 75%. They are wrong.
According to CDC data gathered from 2006-2010, almost 75% of US teens (15-17) had not had sex. (73% of females, 72% of males) This means that the sex education (mostly abstinence education) they received in schools across the nation prior to 2011 had a positive impact on their decisions NOT to have sex, even into high school.
This data also indicated that the TEEN PREGNANCY CRISIS for this age group was, and still is, a media hoax perpetrated by the Planned Parenthood Sex Ed Networks and the Sexual Rights Coalitions to drum up support and funding for more and more sexual foreplay education in our schools.
And, it has worked.
If your state, county or school district has data indicating a higher percentage of students (15-17) are having sex compared to the nation, then you need to ask some questions:
- Are your schools using failed policies and programs from the 90’s when Federal HIV funding pushed “safe sex-only” programs throughout the nation? Pregnancy rates soared during that decade.
- Are your schools forced to adopt so-called “new” Progressive policies and programs pushed by these same “safe sex-only” advocacy groups? Many are the same old programs from the 90’s, just wrapped up in prettier packages.
- Are your students told that they will have sex and the only safe thing to do is practice “safe sex?” This is a lie and students need to know that the majority of teens nationally are not having sex.
According to this CDC data, only 27% of US teens (15-17) were having sex just a few years ago, when abstinence education programs were still funded under the Bush administration. From 2000-2008, many students received medically accurate, age appropriate information about abstinence and marriage in our middle and high schools. Some still do.
Who knew that the CDC data was so strong in favor of abstinence education programs? The consistent mantra from the media was that Federally funded abstinence education programs had failed and that all school age children needed to be taught how to have “safe sex.”
The complicit media and “safe sex” advocates worked with the Obama administration to cancel all Community-Based Abstinence Education grants in 2008, and funnel the funding to “safe sex-only” programs. Since 2008, the sexual rights agenda has ramped up and many school districts across the nation are being forced to implement “safe sex-only” programs and to eliminate all abstinence-until-marriage education programs.
Will the CDC conduct another survey on sexual activity rates from 2010-2014 now that more and more students are being taught how to engage in sexual foreplay, oral, anal, and vaginal “safe sex” in middle and high school?
We hope so, but we are not holding our breaths!
Data on sexual activity rates is important for parents, school administrators, and state legislators to know because research has shown that sexual activity, alone, is an independent predictor of academic achievement. Sexual activity brings extreme drama into a teen’s life that prevents them from doing well in school. This research shows that regardless of contraceptive use, the abstinent teens did much better in school, and were more likely to graduate from high school and pursue further education compared to those students who were sexually active.
Measuring sexual activity rates reveals far more about whether teens are putting themselves at risk for a life of welfare dependency than pregnancy rates or birth rates. Pregnancy rates are no longer accurate because of home pregnancy tests and Plan B. And, birth rates only count those babies that are born ALIVE!
Contraception and abortion have skewed the data on pregnancy rates and birth rates. Therefore, sexual activity rates are the only valid criteria to predict the outcome of today’s sex education.
IF the CDC conducts another national survey on sexual activity, will the results be reported in time to protect this and future generations from the failed policies and “safe sex” programs of the Obama administration?
Let’s hope the CDC does their job, so that we all will know.
