Rep. Pitts: Abstinence Is ‘Only 100% Effective Method’ for Avoiding Pregnancy, STDs

Abstinence is the only 100 percent effective method for avoiding unintended pregnancies or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) including HIV, Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.) said Thursday, adding that it was “essential that our young people learn the risks and consequences of their choices.”

Speaking at a Capitol Hill briefing promoting “sexual risk avoidance” (SRA), or abstinence-based education, in schools, Pitts called for more funding.

“We may live in a culture that seeks instant gratification today but it is essential that our young people learn the risks and consequences of their choices,” he said.

“They must learn that sexuality is sacred and that it entails awesome responsibility of creating new human beings.”

“Government can’t love you, nothing can replace the solid foundation of the family’s unconditional love and support,” he continued. “Children who grow up without that are vulnerable to seeking conditional love, false love from all the wrong places.”

He added that “over one third of US children live with a single parent, the highest proportion among all developed countries.”

Yep - in the real world, the more illegitimate children you spawn, the more welfare you get!

And he would be correct.
A political party that promises no consequences sex for so long has caused this epidemic. That party would be the dumbocrats.

Let's face it; many have decided to live their lives as animals and not control their impulses. Their choice and was the choice of their parents and some of their grandparents. The beat goes on. Until we have a spiritual awakening we will continue to get deeper and deeper into the muck.

Abstinence from killing other people is 100% effective in stopping the murder rate.

So, at least we could put rubbers on gun muzzles! LOL!

How stupid can these people get?
