The Left Has It Wrong When It Comes to Sex Ed




Jonathan Abbamonte

For the past several decades, teen pregnancy in the United States has been on the decline. And since the early 1990s, the teen abortion rate has been in freefall. The reasons for this decline are multi-faceted, not the least of which includes the fact that more teens today are practicing abstinence than they were some twenty years ago.

But according to abortion advocates and the Left, teen abortion and pregnancy rates have fallen largely as a result of contraception. This comes as no surprise as a large part of the abortion industry’s business is largely dependent on making teens and young adults reliant on birth control.

A recent report released by the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that until recently was affiliated with the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, shows that, as of 2011, teen pregnancy was still on the decline. Additionally, a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released this past week found that the teen birth rate, as of 2014, has fallen to lowest level ever.

  1. Good for our whole society.

    the more girls who can grow up, get job skills, develop themselves before having families...the better.

    And for girls/young women who get pregnant unexpectedly...making sure we help them get an education means...they are truly empowered to support/raise the child.

    Third, let's not forgeet the male. If desired, perhaps advice on how to get a paternity test/financial support is good. And for males, help, counseling on helping to raise/support their child or ...if need be...how to establish child visitation for a born child.

    1. "And for girls/young women who get pregnant unexpectedly...making sure we help them get an education means...they are truly empowered to support/raise the child."

      No one gets pregnant 'unexpectedly', it's generally a result of having sex. It's only 'unexpected' in the mind of someone who has been 'empowered' to not be responsible for their actions.

  2. Here we need to speak to both young men and young women...Both have shared responsibility for the cause of pregnancy. Two people are irresponsible...in every pregnancy.
