A Washington Post story on March 13 that featured interviews with local teens, led with a quote from a medical expert who was “astounded” at the CDC figures. The expert, Elizabeth Alderman, adolescent specialist at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center in New York, said that although teens who come to doctors’ offices “tell you they or their partner are using a condom, obviously, many are not.”
Or maybe they are.
Medical authorities have known this for years. In 2001, the CDC released a study that concluded, “there was no epidemiologic evidence that condom use reduced the risk of HPV infection, but study results did suggest that condom use might afford some protection in reducing the risk of HPV-associated diseases, including warts in men and cervical neoplasia in women.”
Since that time, more than 10 million girls and women have contracted HPV. Thousands of them will get cervical cancer. Hundreds of thousands more who practiced “safe sex” as taught in their schools have come down with some of the more than 30 STDs that are now rampant. Many face sterility or other lifelong complications. Here are a few cited by the CDC:
Many sexually transmitted infections can cause adverse pregnancy outcomes including miscarriages, stillbirths, intrauterine growth restriction and perinatal (mother-to-infant) infections. Some STDs can cause infertility or lead to ectopic pregnancy among women and one, the human papillomavirus, can cause cervical and anogenital cancer. Furthermore, other STDs facilitate HIV transmission.
Why aren’t the media asking the following questions of the educators, liberal Congressmen and Planned Parenthood “experts” who are working to eliminate abstinence programs while shoveling yet more tax dollars to their own programs?
If a foreign enemy of the United States conducted a campaign that effectively destroyed sexual morality and put millions of teens at risk for lifelong diseases, we’d consider it an act of war. Instead, Congress keeps throwing tax dollars at the folks who have been responsible for this assault on our kids.
“Safe sex” proponents justify the continued madness by pointing to surveys showing that “most” Americans want more “safe sex” education for their kids. Assuming the surveys are accurate, the findings are not surprising when the media have done their best to cover up the shocking facts about the “safe sex” failures while showcasing partisan attacks on abstinence programs.
Terrified parents, who are told over and over that “experts” know what’s best for their children, have been conditioned by a compliant media to reach for the same bottle of poison, year after year.
And as last week’s legal attack on home schooling in California illustrates starkly, the sexual revolutionaries do not intend to let any children out of their media-protected net.
