Abortion Industry Attacks Abstinence Programs
Planned Parenthood is leading efforts across the nation to shut-down government funding for any educational programs which stress abstinence. According to LifeNews.Com, they have been joined by some 200 organizations in a systematic attack on abstinence programs.
Planned Parenthood has actually labeled abstinence programs “harmful”.
Yet a study published by Adolescent and Family Health magazine in 2004 found that abstinence programs were primarily responsible for a substantial decline in teenage pregnancy rates among teenage girls.
So where is the danger? I believe it is the threat to Planned Parenthood’s profits which drive their irrational attack on encouraging children to abstain from premature sexual activity. But there is more: Abstinence runs counter to Planned Parenthood’s free sex social agenda for our children.
