CDC Data Supports Teen Abstinence!

Mary S. McLellan, MS, SRAS ~ Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist

66511153-Teens-Stay-Healthy-705x522The CDC’s 2018 YRBS (Youth Risk Behavior Survey) Report is out and the data strongly supports students abstaining from all sexual risks.

It also shows that high school students who abstain from all sexual contact (this means oral, anal, and vaginal sex) are healthier than sexually active teens.

 

WOW! Did you hear any of this in the news?

 

Not only has the rate of teen sexual activity continued to decrease in the U.S., students who abstain from sex are also more likely to abstain from other risk behaviors leading to violence, suicide, tobacco use, alcohol and other drugs. Plus, they have better nutritional habits than sexually active teens, which protects them from life-long consequences of obesity.

 

“Students who had no sexual contact have a much lower prevalence of most health-risk behaviors compared with students who had sexual contact with only the opposite sex and students who had sexual contact with only the same sex or with both sexes. For example, the prevalence of all five injury related risk behaviors, all 13 violence-related risk behaviors, all five suicide-related risk behaviors, all 19 tobacco use-related risk behaviors, all 19 risk behaviors related to alcohol and other drug use, and six of the 11 dietary risk behaviors was higher among students who had sexual contact with only the opposite sex and students who had sexual contact with only the same sex or with both sexes than students who had no sexual contact.”(Pg. 108)

 

This amazing news was NOT reported by the main stream media because it doesn’t fit the Sexual Rights narrative. Rather, SIECUS, a spinoff of Planned Parenthood, reported on  “severe health disparities among lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) youth and youth of color.”

 

Of course, there are ‘severe health disparities!’ But, the so-called ‘disparities’ occur between those abstaining and those having sex! It only proves that teaching adolescents and teens that sex is normal, good, and expected is very dangerous to their health. 

 

 

SIECUS, CDC DASH (Division of Adolescent and School Health), and many others are responsible for creating these ‘severe health disparities!’ For more than 30 years, they have colluded to normalize high risk sexual behaviors in public schools and community agencies through harmful CSE and influencing public policy and laws.

 

New research by the Institute for Research and Evaluation reveals that CSE has been a dismal failure at protecting the sexual health of youth. Some CSE programs actually harm children. In addition, many of the CSE programs researched had no impact on condom use, which lines up with the CDC YRBS data showing that condom use among sexually active teens is at an all-time-low. No wonder STDs rates are soaring in almost every state.

 

Smart teens are winning! The majority of teens ARE making wise choices and more parents are getting outraged about the obscene and harmful sex ed in their schools.

 

Join the fight to protect the health and innocence of children!

Take a look at the harmful elements found in Rights, Respect, and Responsibility (3Rs), a popular CSE program that is sweeping the U.S.

ACLU and Activist Judge Need Sex Ed Lesson

Activist JudgesDid you hear the one about the ACLU and the Activist Judge in California? They don’t understand human anatomy, reproduction, or adolescent brain development. Or, do they?

This week, an activist judge ruled that abstinence-only education is “medically inaccurate” and should be illegal in schools. Not only is the teaching of abstinence a state mandate, but abstinence must be taught as the only sure way to prevent pregnancies, HIV and other STDs.

That sounds “medically accurate” to me!

The ACLU is using an 8-year old complaint against the Clovis School District to assault abstinence education and pregnancy care centers who deal with the consequences of sex and unplanned pregnancies every day.

Now, it seems the plaintiffs want to be reimbursed their legal fees, so they are using an activist judge to get them money, while denigrating all abstinence education and smearing pregnancy care centers – at the expense of children.

In 2007, the Clovis School District received complaints from some parents that the abstinence lessons were shaming sexually active students. The school district corrected the issues. Now the ACLU and the parents that sued the district want reparations or restitution for the time that the school district was in the wrong.

While some “mom & pop” abstinence resources have used shame-based rhetoric to encourage delay of sex, it is certainly frowned upon by professional Evidence-based Abstinence Education programs. In fact, most such programs that we have studied encourage all students, regardless of sexual history, to consider abstinence. They explain in great detail the scientific benefits of not having sex until they are in a mutually faithful, monogamous relationship, like marriage. There is no shame; just hope for a better future.

The situation in Clovis sounds like it was a training issue, not a medical accuracy issue!

However, many if not most of the so-called “safe-sex” programs that the ACLU and others in the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education , promote sexual activities without boundaries as the only normal, healthy, and expected behaviors for children, adolescents, teens and adults. Sex is forced as the only “choice” for young people.

Virgins and those who have decided to commit or recommit to an abstinent life-style are made to feel ashamed of their decision. And, many sexually active students, who do get to hear a strong science-based abstinence message, are relieved to know that they can say NO! to sex.

Girls will say, “No one ever told me that I didn’t have to put out.”

And, boys will comment that, “Now, I know that I don’t have to have babies all over town. I can finish school, get married, and then have children.”

These students, and millions like them, need to be validated and admired for their mature decisions to look beyond the orgasm to a future of real intimacy, health, and success!

One only has to review Making Proud Choices!, a popular sex program for 11-13 year old minors, to understand the extreme pressure that students are subjected to by their teachers and other authorities in the public schools. They are groomed to experiment with sex, delay marriage – if at all, and to engage in risky sexual behaviors. All, while taught that “abstinence” means “avoiding unprotected sex” and if they use condoms, they “do not have to worry.”

Clovis High School did their due diligence to correct their sexual health program years ago. We hope they fight this idiotic decision and win.

When are the Sexual Rights Activists going to take responsibility for the generations of chaotic families they have produced over the past decades? What about all those children who grow up in poverty and dependency on welfare checks with little hope of escape? They are given no “choice.”

It is the Sexual Rights Cartel that should be shamed for their legacy of lies built on the fraudulent science of Alfred Kinsey, and it is their brand of sex education that should be ruled illegal based on “medically fraudulent information” and obscenity statues.

They are the ones that need to pay restitution or reparations to the taxpayers and get kicked out of the schools!

“Live-Tweet Mama” or Sexual Rights Activist?

Alice Dreger 2
We posted last time about the “Live Tweet Mom” who attended her son’s abstinence day at school and was outraged. Her tweets went viral and she is now the new HOT MAMA! Except she isn’t. She is a long time Sexual Rights Activist. This was a set up, from the get-go, to boost her name and image among her network and colleagues.

Thanks to our ExposeSexEdNow colleagues, we now know that she did not take the time out of her busy day as a “medical professor” to find out what her child was taught about sex, but that she had a self-serving agenda to exploit for her own fame and glory.

News outlets are admitting that the mom is an author and activist. The “ordinary” mom who has her tweets going viral…has her own wiki page, did a TED talk, happens to be writing a new book, “Galileo’s Middle Finger”….about “ethics,” and apparently likes the nice things Dan Savage has to say about her.

The mom writes for the New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal and she’s also written for The Atlantic (see screen shot inserted with a list of some of the titles).

“I am sure the publicity from the “what’s trending” in the twitter world

will help with her future book sales.”  Susan Duffy

ACORN vs. Abstinence Education Programs

The following Op Ed, entitled Abstinence Ed, first appeared in The Post and Courier, in Charleston, SC, July 31, 2014.

ACORN sting

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most people are aware that Congress cut off funds for ACORN after the organization was filmed undercover, advising potential clients on how to start a brothel.

I am sure the public is not aware, however, that President Obama and Congress defunded 169 contracted abstinence education providers across the country, effectively putting most out of business in 2010.

Heritage Keepers, a program I am familiar with in South Carolina, had to let 50 teachers go, even though Health and Human Services later put their curriculum on its approved list for middle and high schools as an evidence-based pregnancy prevention program.

For over a decade, anti-abstinence organizations have systematically portrayed abstinence education as an application of Bible-belt reactionary sentiment and as being rooted in ignorance.

However, the program above is based on a Utah statistician’s study of risk factors for teen sex on five continents.

As an example, he identified a child’s future orientation – whether he had aspirations beyond high school – as a risk factor for early sex. Those factors that could be impacted in a classroom setting were included in the syllabus.

Teachers were trained in medical accuracy and periodically evaluated on how well they impacted the attitudes and behavior of their students after the classes.

The South Carolina program served over 200,000 students before funding was cut. After one year, students receiving this program abstained at a rate three times greater than comparable non-program students.

The program was proven effective across age, gender and racial lines, regardless of a student’s sexual history. It was evaluated by Mathematica Policy Research, a Princeton, N.J., independent contractor.

The evidence against ACORN was anecdotal, with only a handful of observations. The evidence for good abstinence programs in our state is empirical, and is based on extensive documentation.
