Charleston, SC: Bogus CRISIS! in Teen Pregnancy

Featured

don-t-believe-the-hype-t-shirts_design

Sexual Rights Advocates claim the victory for the lowest teen pregnancy rates in decades. They even claim responsibility for the majority of teens choosing to abstain from sex, yet none of their programs promote sexual abstinence or teach the skills to do so.

In order to keep the media hype going and millions of taxpayer dollars flowing in their direction, these teen sex advocates must claim victory where there is none. They use these bogus claims to convince school districts that all teens will have sex so that they will adopt their Planned Parenthood Sex Programs, exclusively, for middle and high school students.

Teen pregnancy rates have been trending downward for well over two decades. In SC, abstinence-until-marriage education was first funded in 1996 under Welfare Reform. Until then, condoms-only programs were the norm, resulting in skyrocketing teen pregnancy rates. Since 1996, pregnancy rates for teens (15-17) and adolescents (10-14) have dramatically decreased by 60% and 80%, respectively.

Heritage Keepers® is the predominant Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education program used in South Carolina schools over the past two decades. It is the only abstinence-until-marriage program in the nation listed by U.S. HHS as an Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program.(2012) This list of 35 programs is used by school districts to select sex education programs for their students. 

Independent evaluation of Heritage Keepers® in SC public schools reveals that a year after the program, Heritage Keepers® students initiated sexual activity at a rate that is 67% lower than non-program students.

This evaluation included 2,215 sexually experienced and inexperienced students in 7th, 8th, and 9th grade, with 63% of the students African-American.

Heritage Keepers® was shown to be effective across age, gender, and race.

These are amazing behavioral outcomes in the science of teen pregnancy prevention.

In Charleston County, Heritage Keepers® is the only Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education program approved for the public schools, while “safe sex” condom programs are also on the list. When Heritage Keepers® Certified Educators arrive on campus, the sexual climate of the entire school changes. 

Students choosing to abstain feel validated, and those contemplating a return to abstinence are empowered to follow through on their goals.

Pregnancy rates in Charleston have declined even more dramatically than the state, with pregnancy rates for teens (15-17) and adolescents (10-14) decreasing by 72% and 90%, respectively.

So, is contraception use driving down pregnancy rates? Not according to the most recent CDC Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) for SC released in 2014.

According to the YRBS, only 32% of SC high school teens were currently sexually active at the time of the survey. That means that almost 70% of high school teens in SC were not having sex! Who knew?

The survey also showed that there was a:

  • 26% increase (2005-2013) in teens who DID NOT USE a condom during last sexual intercourse.
  • 80% of girls DID NOT USE birth control pills to prevent pregnancy before last sexual intercourse. (UNCHANGED since 1995), and
  • 95% of girls DID NOT USE an IUD before last sexual intercourse.

The YRBS further reveals that between 1995 and 2013 more teens abstained from sexual activity. There was a:

  • 28% decrease in high school teens who have EVER had sex.
  • 49% decrease in 9th grade teens who have EVER had sex.
  • 46% decrease in 4 or more life time partners.
  • 30% decrease in high school teens who are sexually active.

Clearly, contraception is not the only reason that pregnancy rates have decreased, since their use has flat lined. The facts show that sexually active teens are not increasing contraception use! And, more teens are abstaining from sex.

Since “safe sex” condom programs used in SC do not teach teens how to abstain from sexual activity or teach about the benefits of abstinence and marriage, how can they take credit for any increases in abstinent behaviors?

They can’t, but they do!

The complicit media will not report the good news from the YRBS, because it does not fit the Sexual Rights narrative. They continue the drum beat demanding that abstinence-until-marriage education programs have failed and must be kicked out of schools in favor of Planned Parenthood Sex Programs.

Don’t believe the hype about a teen pregnancy crisis in need of the Planned Parenthood solution.

It is only a distraction to hide the Sexual Rights Agenda, which has nothing to do with health. It has everything to do with recruiting adolescents and teens into a sexual lifestyle that benefits their business model.

It’s all about the money.

 

 

 

Sex Ed Racists and Bigots

Featured

HowIsPornAddicative_HiRes

People raised with strong beliefs about certain classes of people, faiths, income or education levels, intelligence, lifestyles, knowledge or ideologies, find it difficult to tolerate other beliefs. Neural pathways develop during early years making it easier to think, accept and act based on their own perspectives.

 

Unless something dramatic happens in their lives, this is their world and life view.

Many Black and White parents in the South taught their children “to not judge others by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Thanks to Dr. King, we saw results from those efforts in Charleston, SC after the tragic slaughter of nine faith leaders at Mother Emanuel AME Church. Much of Charleston’s response was based on looking beyond color to the content of character and understanding that it is the inside of a person that causes evil, not the outside.

Racism and bigotry are learned behaviors.

There is another, more insidious type of racism and bigotry doing great harm to all people and their families. That is the bigotry of low expectations, especially regarding sexual behavior. Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, and other Sexual Rights Bigots have targeted children for over 30 years through Comprehensive Health Education. These racists and bigots have specifically targeted Black, and other minority, children by using them to “test” sex programs and then by herding them into those sex programs through public schools.

For decades, these sex programs have taught that most kids their age are having sex, which is a lie, and that they have a right to experience sexual pleasures regardless of the consequences. (Kinsey Sex) As a result, millions suffer and are enslaved to a Master – the Government.

No one escapes this enslavement. Either you are forced to pay for welfare entitlements with your taxes or you must subsist on them. Many do both. Unless new generations learn the life-script for success and self-sufficiency, there will be nothing, but further social decline for our children and grandchildren.

There is simply not enough money in the world to support a welfare system that has more dependents than those paying into it.

Change is not easy. The majority of adults – who have never known a day without birth control, abortion, and STDs and have no idea how to form healthy relationships or make marriages work – are raising children to do the same. Not only are their brains wired, their children’s teachers, also groomed, normalize sex acts as entertainment. Sex is just sex. They cannot imagine a world where sex is meant for life-long marriage, intimacy, and procreation or where healthy married families thrive.

Their world is a complex mix of chaotic families, single parents, divorce, STDs, abortion, infertility, porn, sex trafficking, lack of job skills, poverty, domestic and sexual abuse, life-long dependency on welfare, depression and addictions, and more and more indulgence in sex acts as entertainment to escape their dire reality.

Many so-called “safe sex” programs do not teach children about puberty, conception, or reproduction. And, none teach your child about abstinence until marriage or about the benefits of marriage. They use pregnancy and STD prevention to teach sex acts (tricks), grooming the masses for self-destruction.

The proven, ideal life-script for centuries has been censored in public schools for decades. The benefits of marriage and delaying sex until marriage are barred topics from health and sex classes. Even now that Same Sex Marriage has been legalized in the U.S., these subjects are censored! (This proves that much of the Same Sex Marriage Movement is/was about sexual freedoms, not about so-called equal rights or about family.) Students are not taught how sex leads to pregnancies and babies, and therefore when pregnancies occur, they demand that the baby be eliminated. “I didn’t sign up for this! All I wanted was great sex!” Cohabitation and hook-ups are presented as normal, expected, healthy lifestyle choices, regardless of the impact on children.

There is institutional racism and bigotry within our government and academic bureaucracies to transform all people into sexually dependent minions. This is a bi-partisan issue! Both Republican and Democrat leaders have promoted this agenda in our schools and state agencies since the early 60’s. Federal funding will only pay for the implementation of Planned Parenthood Sex Programs in school districts, eliminating quality Evidence-based Abstinence Until Marriage Education programs from consideration. As a result, Sexperts teach vulnerable adolescents and teens how to perform “fun and pleasurable” sex acts to fit the Planned Parenthood/Sexual Rights narrative that “all teens will have sex,” thus leading them down the dark path towards chaos and welfare dependency.

These racists and bigots discriminate against entire classes of people, based on race, gender, and religion, to push their new world order. They target the most vulnerable when their brains are experiencing rapid growth.

The only solution is for parents to take responsibility for teaching their own children about sex, reproduction, and marriage.

Parents need to opt out (Sample from Defend the Family or write your own) of all classes or programs teaching sexual information and/or that refuse to teach about delaying all sexual activity until marriage, and the benefits of marriage. If the schools will not allow you to sit in on all of the sex classes for your child and allow you to view all DVDs, workbooks, and teacher manuals of a sex program, then we recommend that you opt out. Please, do not blindly turn your child over to the state. You have options.

Parents and their kids can sign up for Evidence-based classes in the community. And, faith leaders can be trained to teach science-based, medically accurate lessons consistent with their faith.

Tell your schools to teach Johnny and Susie to read, write and do math, and leave the sex information to you, the parents!

Bristol Palin Was Duped

Bristol PalinBristol Palin is no different than millions of Americans (50 and under), who are victims of the lie that “safe-sex” is equal to “abstinence.”

The Candie’s Foundation has never promoted Abstinence-Until-Marriage, nor does Comprehensive Sex Ed in the public schools. They promote “safe-sex” with condoms and call it “abstinence” education to betray the public.

“Abstinence,” as defined by the SexPerts in academia, education, media, and most Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs, is “avoiding unprotected sex” or “avoiding unsafe sex” or “wait until you are ready, but use condoms sex.” By re-defining “abstinence” the SexPerts have controlled the message. Marriage is never promoted.

Scott Phelps, a national leader in the Abstinence-Until-Marriage movement has an excellent op-ed in the Chicago Sun-Times about Palin, Candie’s Foundation, and the difference between bogus “abstinence” and Abstinence-Until-Marriage education.

Bristol Palin is Neither a Hypocrite nor a Liar

BY SCOTT PHELPS July 4, 2015 – Chicago-Sun Times

Bristol Palin is facing stiff criticism in the wake of her announcement that she is pregnant for a second time — and still unmarried. She is being called a hypocrite due to her work as an abstinence advocate for the Candies Foundation. Palin denies ever being paid as an “abstinence spokesperson.” Posting evidence online to the contrary, her detractors now say that she is not only a hypocrite but also a liar.

Bristol Palin is right. She is neither.  Read more here…

The Sexual Rights Coalition eagerly jumped on Palin to smear all abstinence education as ineffective and unworthy of funding, while they themselves rely on the term “abstinence” to lie their way into public school districts. They cannot have it both ways! Their brand of “abstinence” education is nothing more than promoting sexual foreplay and sex with condoms to millions of minors, teen and adults.

Marriage is the key concept in Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education. That’s why the Sexual Rights Coalition hates it so much. Their agenda is to promote sex at any age outside of marriage. It is the Kinsey, Planned parenthood, SIECUS Sex Agenda.

Everyone in America deserves to be taught Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education, regardless of sexual history or sexual orientation. There is no “choice” if this valuable sexual health message continues to be censored in our schools and colleges.

“Safe Sex” as “abstinence” is fraud.

 

 

 

Charleston, SC: Letter Exposing Sex Program Censored!

 censorshipThe Charleston Post and Courier only printed parts of a letter submitted about a recent sex ed meeting where Making Proud Choices! was recommended for the public schools.

See below. The RED is the texts that was censored!

June 2 2015

Last week, [May 21st] the Health Advisory Committee (HAC) for Charleston County School District voted unanimously (9 present out of 13) to recommend Making Proud Choices!, a Safer-Sex program for 11-13 year old middle school minors. This program is promoted and funded by Sexual Rights agencies on the federal and state level.  Abstinence is presented to children as equal to “avoiding unprotected sex.”

A similar action failed 2 years ago when Trustees on the Strategic Education Committee actually read some of the sexually explicit and titillating pages in the curriculum.

However, it made no difference to the HAC that a dozen parents, grandparents, medical and education professionals testified against Making Proud Choices! It made no difference that this program violates SC Law by emphasizing sexual activities, rather than abstinence until marriage. Their main concern was getting out within an hour!

The HAC Chair commented that teens from married families might not need Making Proud Choices!, but teens from single parent, urban families certainly need it. That smacks of profiling, discrimination, and bigotry! Low income African American, Hispanic, and white teens from single parent families deserve to learn the same optimal sexual health message – Abstinence-Until-Marriage – as those teens from married families. No wonder there is a caste system in our culture; the marrieds vs. the unmarrieds.

It is preposterous that the HAC is actually targeting specific groups of children in Charleston to receive sexually explicit condoms-only instruction. Are they also told that they cannot take AP classes or the SAT?  

Making Proud Choices! is a failed condom advocacy program that teaches minors how to have “fun and pleasurable,” “erotic” and “worry free” sex with condoms. Evaluations conducted in 1998, 2010, and 2015 showed “no effect” on condom use by the end of the program and even made things worse!

Just last month, a report on a 3-year project in Texas revealed that more of the 8th grade Making Proud Choices! students had sex for the first time, had sex within 3 months after the program, had unprotected sex, and were less likely to consistently use condoms compared to students taking a regular health program. The Making Proud Choices! students scored higher on knowledge, but were less confident that they could Say NO! to sex. (http://tinyurl.com/nh7vzhd)

Making Proud Choices! will be considered again soon by the Strategic Education Committee consisting of Trustees Chris Collins, Kate Darby and Chris Staubes. Making Proud Choices! needs to be stopped again, because all of our children deserve better than failed sex programs.

[End]

 So, the truth is once again censored. This is why we must get the word out through social media. There is no Freedom of the Press and protecting children is not on their agenda.

PP-Network Takes Credit for Teen Abstinence??

1 in 4 girls has ever had sexWhile the Planned Parenthood Network (PP-Network) pumps out endless propaganda bashing abstinence-until-marriage education and takes credit for the dramatic decreases in teen pregnancies, CDC data shows that teens (15-17) have been abstaining from sex, at increasing rates, over the past decade. The most recent data shows that almost 75% of teens (15-17) nationally surveyed by the CDC, have not had sex.

To the PP-Network, the only problem with sex is that it makes babies and BABIES ARE A REAL PROBLEM for them. Sexual Rights is the PP-Network’s agenda. Therefore, whatever it takes to prevent babies from being conceived, developing or born is the goal of the sex and abortion industry.

Why is the PP-Network so OFFENDED by abstinence-until-marriage education?

Because, abstinence-until-marriage education promotes MARRIAGE and FIDELITY WITHIN MARRIAGE.

The PP-Network has no problem saying that they believe in abstinence, as long as they get to define what abstinence means. To them, oral sex, anal sex, and mutual masturbation are the same as abstinence, because these sex acts do not make babies.

And, these SexPerts have no problem telling kids to abstain, as long as there are no restrictions on how long they must wait. Abstinence to them can be until teens are 13, 16, 18 or whenever they feel they are ready to be “proud and responsible” enough to use condoms and take toxic hormones.

This is why Comprehensive Sex Education is such a farce. It is not, and cannot be, “comprehensive” since it would have to teach all views on the purposes of sex.

The PP view of sex ed is to promote hedonism without forming a family while Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education promotes romance and healthy family formation, within marriage, resulting in connected generations of families.

There is no comprehensive program or curriculum that could attempt to teach both views, with a straight face. It would be ludicrous! Which view do you think will provide the best future for your child?

Proponents of Comprehensive Sex Education claim that it covers abstinence and contraception and everything in between. Except that it doesn’t. What they hide from the public, and especially parents, is the fact that they do not teach about marriage, family formation, or the responsibilities of raising children. They teach sex.

Proponents also do not want it exposed that add-on programs, like Making A Difference! and Making Proud Choices!, both listed on PP’s website, teach sexual foreplay and intercourse, under the guise of STD prevention, so that condoms can be taught to younger and younger kids. However, sexual foreplay also spreads STDs. Medically Accurate?

Abstinence-Until-Marriage education is the exact opposite of the PP-Network’s Sexual Rights Agenda in the following ways:

Abstinence-Until-Marriage programs are holistic, meaning that humans are viewed as whole beings with value and uniqueness. The act of sex biologically impacts the mind, body, emotions and spirit as humans engage in it, even if there is no intercourse. This is why humans are different. We are not animals.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights Agenda views humans as genitals to be fondled, and maybe if convenient, protected from disease with condoms. Little girls and women are to use hormones to prevent or get rid of pregnancies. In the end, humans are simply sex toys for someone else’s pleasure. This is why the PP-Networks want no limits or restrictions on sex.  

Abstinence-Until-Marriage programs teach students that abstinence means not engaging in sexual activity until marriage, including vaginal, oral, anal sex and mutual masturbation. Such programs also teach about the dangers of porn, sexting, and cohabitation.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights Agenda promotes unbridled sexual activity – at any age – with anyone or anything – as long as there is “consent” – whatever that means.

Abstinence-Until-Marriage promotes life-long, faithful marriage. The social sciences have proven that there are at least Thirty Benefits of Marriage and that children fare best on all social indicators when raised by their own two married parents.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights Agenda seeks to destroy marriage as an institution and therefore the traditional family. Even the gay marriage movement is just a Progressive ploy to gradually redefine the family and get rid of marriage as an institution and a societal good. None of the sex programs for schools listed on the PP website promote marriage, even for gay couples.

Abstinence-Until-Marriage promotes the fact that sex is wonderful and creates intimacy – within the context of marriage. When sex takes place within a marriage, it is more likely to be safer than outside of marriage. Research has shown that married couples have more sex and more satisfying sex than singles.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights agenda promotes sex without boundaries, especially without the restraints of marriage, monogamy, or commitment. They portray an unrealistic, unsatisfying, and false view of “Hollywood” sex to get people of all ages hooked on sexual pleasures.    

Abstinence-Until-Marriage promotes the fact that waiting until one has finished their education, and married before having sex and children is the best way to become an economically self-sufficient and prosperous member of society with a stable family life.

  • The PP-Network’s Sexual Rights agenda teaches that humans are sexual from birth and need to have sex in order to mature properly. (Alfred Kinsey/SIECUS) They target poor, minority, inner city neighborhoods to push their sex without boundaries, contraception and abortion agenda. This increases the risks of generational poverty, drop-out rates, and unwed childbearing. 
  • Planned Parenthood receives millions of taxpayer dollars annually to promote their agenda, plus they are large part of Obamacare so the revolving door of poverty and dependency will continue to spin out of control.

So, why are teen pregnancy rates declining? For many reasons.

According to several CDC reports, more and more teens are choosing to delay sex and those who are having sex are being more selective. The PP Network cannot take credit for the increase in abstinence, because they do not seriously teach it.

Real credit needs to go to the smart teens themselves who are choosing to abstain. Also, to parents, faith leaders and educators who really care about kids and are not afraid to tell them to delay sex until marriage.

Let’s not give credit to those who are promoting a Sexual Rights Agenda and are being paid by the sex industries.

That would be a farce.

Sex Ed: What can I get away with today?

RedYellowGreenLightsWhat are kids learning about avoiding risky behaviors?

Are we teaching them that some risks are worth the consequences?

This is not how prevention  approaches the use of tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. Parents and teachers use every scientific argument known to be directive and adamant about abstaining from these substances and there are laws designed to prevent youth and adults from engaging or promoting such risky behaviors. This approach is the reason that tobacco use among teens has dramatically decreased over the past twenty-years.

Yet, when risky behaviors pertain to sexual activity, parents, teachers, and even law enforcement, become ambivalent and provide wishy-washy guidance, at best, leaving young people exposed to the consequences of sex without boundaries. Why do we shrink back from using every medically accurate, scientific fact to teach our teens and young adults how to abstain and set clear boundaries for appropriate sexual activity?

Why are we, in fact, doing just the opposite?

Many parents tell us that they feel like hypocrites telling their teens to delay sex, even until marriage, because they did not do so. This is exactly how societies go from bad to worse! Adults need to know that this is no longer about them and their sexual history! They have a chance to effect their child’s future. They need to refocus their attention onto what is best for their children and their peers. They need to give them the best sexual health messages, because that’s what most good parents do.

Many Comprehensive Health Ed programs in our schools add-on pregnancy and STD prevention curricula found on the Planned Parenthood website. These curricula teach sexual foreplay techniques with condoms to 11-16 year old teens, under the guise of HIV/STD prevention. Rather than teach clear, protective boundaries, they teach what teens/adults can get away with in our culture. With the clear and unambiguous boundaries of marriage and monogamous life-long fidelity rapidly disappearing from our culture, Sexual Rights have become the predominant message.

However, even with hormonal birth control and condoms, sexual activity still leads to predictable consequences such as pregnancy, disease, and life-long regret. Planned Parenthood, and other abortion services, benefit financially when the inevitable happens. No wonder they push these programs in our schools.

For at least the past three decades, Sex Ed in our schools, military, and colleges has abandoned the science of reproduction, and the medical and social benefits of abstinence and pregnancy prevention. Sex Ed is almost entirely about how to reduce the risks of sex, while still having “erotic, fun, and pleasurable” sex with condoms.

Sex education is an integral part of a worldwide Sexual Rights Agenda that fails to protect the rights of its victims to be really safe and free from harm.

While adults can legally make decisions about their sexual risks, minors and teens cannot, and they deserve legal and social protections from this dangerous agenda and from the adults who indulge in it.

Just two decades ago, military and civilian personnel were effectively trained on sexual harassment using actual court cases, so that they would know the clear boundaries they must follow to stay out of trouble. In recent years, Red, Yellow and Green Light trainings deal with tolerating the sexual behaviors of others and how far a person can go without violating “consent.” Or, how to obtain “consent” without being charged with harassment, sexual abuse or rape.

The lessons taught are about how to avoid the consequences of behavior, not about how to avoid the behavior leading to the consequences. This strategy has never worked for alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use.

Why do we insanely insist that it will work for out-of-bounds sexual activity?

Click on the pictures below. These are very similar sex lessons taught to students, under the guise of HIV Prevention. These sex lessons are known as Red, Yellow and Green Light Activities, found in Making A Difference! (pg. 120) for middle schools and in Be Proud! Be Responsible! (pg. 54) for high schools. Both curricula are produced by Select Media and are provided “FREE” to school districts and “Safe Sex-only” agencies around the nation with Federal and State grants using our tax money.

MAD_Lights0001BPBR_Lights0001

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The purported goal of these lessons is to encourage the use of condoms (protected sex) while engaging in so-called “safe sex.” All of these activities are openly discussed in class as “safe” or “unsafe” ways to express sexual feelings. The Yellow Light activities are presented as “safe,” as long as condoms are used consistently and correctly at every incidence of sex. Even some of the Green Light activities are suspect, and the Red Light activities are really not off limits, as long as “protection” is used.

Even the CDC has stopped using percent effectiveness of condoms against HIV/STD transmission in their most recent Fact Sheet. They only claim that condoms are “highly effective.” However, condoms are only effective if used consistently and correctly during every act of vaginal sexual intercourse. The CDC warns about anal sex, yet promotes condoms for this activity, especially for gay and bisexual men.

Factor in normal human behavior, and the consequences from engaging in these sexual activities are just a “roll of the dice.” One does not get to choose which consequence(s) – STDs, pregnancy, depression, school failure, suicide, or nothing – they would prefer to endure.

“Better to be safe, than sorry” use to be the prevailing wisdom.

Now it is simply, “What can I get away with!”

This is not wisdom and it protects no one.

61% Decline in SC Teen Pregnancy Rates!

Who knewTeen Pregnancy Rates in South Carolina have dramatically decreased since abstinence-until-marriage programs were integrated into the state’s public schools in 1995.

Until then, teen pregnancy rates were at an all-time high due to HIV Condoms-Only programs that had saturated the state.

Coincidentally, Heritage Keepers®, a non-profit established in 1995 and the first statewide recipient of Title V, Section 510 Abstinence-Until-Marriage funding under Welfare Reform (1996), was implemented and continues to be the most effective abstinence-until-marriage program in the state, and the nation.

SC Teen Pregnancy Picture

(Pregnancy rates are defined as “the estimated number of the sum of live births, abortions, and fetal deaths.” Therefore, regardless of the outcome of the pregnancy, rates have decreased drastically.)

The Planned Parenthood Sex Ed Network, and the complicit media, certainly do not want you to know this and, in fact, they are taking credit for all drops in national teen pregnancy rates, even for the almost 75% of teens (15-17) who have not had sex! (CDC)

Using CDC’s own data, if only a fraction of the 25% of teens (15-17) nationally, who are currently sexually active used condoms, or birth control, then it stands to reason that the pregnancy rates would decrease.

But, there is no way the amazing decreases in teen pregnancies nationally would, or could, be primarily due to contraception!

imagesCA4NUD1CIt is a matter of common sense and biology, that not having sex (abstinence) is the best way to decrease pregnancies and it is by far the safest method. Teens are absolutely capable and willing to abstain if they are given the medically accurate, age appropriate information that they need and the skills to set high standards for their behavior.

Certified Heritage Keepers® Educators have taught in schools that also provide condoms-only programs. Those so-called “safe sex” programs have never deterred the staff at Heritage Keepers®, who believe that, regardless of sexual history or sexual orientation, every student deserves to know the benefits of marriage, the benefits of abstinence-until-marriage, and to learn the skills to achieve their goals.

This is why a year after the Heritage Keepers® program, students abstain at a rate 3 times greater than students not receiving the program. Even when students are being exposed to Sexual Foreplay programs in the same schools! Students know the difference between real abstinence and counterfeit abstinence programs.

Students who are abstaining, or want to abstain, feel validated in their decisions just by knowing that Heritage Keepers® is in their school and community! And, teens, who learn that they can have real control over their lives, want to avoid the sexual pressures in their culture, and escape the DRAMA, poverty and shattered dreams that sex outside of marriage can bring.

Heritage Keepers® continues to be the ONLY Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education program on the US HHS list of proven effective Evidence-based programs. It continues to be the ONLY proven effective Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program listed that changes teen attitudes and behavior regarding abstinence until marriage.

Don’t be fooled by imitation Abstinence Education programs! If the programs in your schools and community do not promote marriage and abstinence until marriage, they are not teaching boundaries and neuro-science tells us that teens need boundaries for healthy brain development and to reach their potential.

Abstinence-Until-Marriage programs, when implemented effectively by educators who believe in what they are teaching, can and will reduce teen pregnancies and that means fewer single teen moms struggling to make ends meet.

For the already drained taxpayers, it means fewer reasons for lawmakers to increase taxes to support these fragile families. 

South Carolina has a long way to go to aleviate poverty due to out-of-wedlock births, but teen pregnancy rates (15-17) are going in the right direction.

Check out Heritage Keepers® today so that your state, your church’s youth group, and your community can also get on the right road to success.
