Though our plans and discussions may have been similar, the outcome has been very different for people. While many families adapt and re-discuss and re-plan. Others choose to abort their child and continue with their original plan. That difference has led to a “shocking” new study with a “shocking” conclusion: pro-life families have more children than pro-abortion families.
The study says that not only are pro-life families larger, they are producing a generation that is “markedly more pro-life”:
What happens when you hand out condoms at the high school level?
If you’re a progressive, liberal, or lacking in common sense the answer is: kids have safe sex.
If you have a properly functioning moral compass and a shred of common sense the answer is: teen pregnancy rates go up.
While advocates of condom distribution studies insist that these programs are designed to encourage safe sex; a growing body of data points to the fact that condom programs simply increase teen pregnancy and abortion rates.
Take a moment to read about a new study that further suggests condom programs do little more than increase teen pregnancy and abortion rates. A recent report comments on the new study:
“Overall, the study adds to an impressive body of research which shows that efforts to encourage contraceptive use either through mandates, subsidies, or distribution are ineffective at best or counterproductive at worst. In many countries, increases in contraception use are correlated with increase in the abortion rate.”
The study supports other data, which suggests that teen pregnancy, abortion, and STD’s all increase due to the implementation of condom programs. To this I utter an exasperated and common-sense based “sigh.”
Common sense would dictate that the best way to avoid things like pregnancy and STD’s is abstinence. After all, if you are not having sex, it would be hard to get pregnant or get a disease transmitted by having sex. Right?
Well, for a number of years the current administration has been trying to convince us that abstinence is one option, but it’s not the best. They want us to consider condoms, and birth control as some of the best ways to avoid these issues.
It’s hard to take seriously anyone that argues condoms over abstinence as a more effective preventative against STD’s. But finally some common sense has kicked in and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has made a two-word change that makes all the difference.
As reported by LifeNews:
All you need to know about a taxpayer funded sex conference in Oregon is what a spokesperson for the event had to say about what the event is all about:
“We really think the message that they are bringing to these children is not value oriented. It’s about helping youth make good choices on their own personal sexuality. It’s about making good decisions about their relationships; it’s about giving them skills to just anything that has to deal with health.”
In other words, one of the organizers of the event says that the event is not about teaching values, but about teaching youth to “make good choices on their own personal sexuality.”
The problem with this statement is that every choice comes from a place of values, which begins with morality. So, for a person to make a “good choice” regarding sexuality that person must first have a moral understanding of his or her sexuality that will enable a good choice. The result of not teaching any values associated with sexuality is exactly the problem, it’s how we arrived at this particular point in our culture.
TheBlaze shared the visual art Vine of Ian Padgham which took about a year to complete. Considering that Vine videos are only 6 seconds long it doesn’t make sense that his video took so long to compose. Unless of course he was creating a video based on the transformation that comes with motherhood. This particular video uses his own wife as the subject and it easy to see why it was looped more than 6 million times in just two days.

Okay, now that we have the formalities out of the way let’s move on and discuss why anyone would disagree with the fact that abstinence is the only way to avoid pregnancy.
Only a conservative person could possibly draw the ire of liberals by daring to make the statement that pregnancy is 100% preventable by abstinence. Logically, factually, scientifically, this is an accurate statement. The problem is that many liberals don’t live in a logical, factual, scientific world, they live in a world where emotions, desires, and preference reign supreme.
So when a person, let’s say, Rush Limbaugh, says that pregnancy is preventable by women “if they didn’t do a certain thing,” of course liberals get angry.
Limbaugh was responding to a radio caller who was trying to reconcile the fact that the government believes it necessary to mandate coverage for birth control and abortion pills but not dental or eye exams. Hmm, there’s a great question for the ObamaCare framers. Limbaugh responded to the caller by saying:
One couple decided to take a photo every day of their pregnancy and make it into a music video. The result speaks for itself. It’s a beautiful picture of how valuable life is. At the very end of the video the man’s wife walks out of the picture and returns holding their newborn child.
This might be the most unique pregnancy video I’ve ever seen and it is obvious from the care that went into it that this couple was eagerly and excitedly awaiting the arrival of their child. Watching this video will do your heart some good and remind you just how beautiful life and “new things” are.

A long-term study in the panhandle of Texas covering 16 counties covering 1994 through 2010 shows the teen pregnancy rate drops significantly when Planned Parenthood is not around.
While Planned Parenthood claims that they serve an important role in the community evidence to the contrary suggests Planned Parenthood is the problem. A recent article explains the study:
When an 82 year-old Colombian woman went to the doctor for her stomach pains, she never expected to hear that she was carrying a 40-year-old “stone baby.” The condition, known as lithopedion, or stone baby, occurs when the baby begins developing outside the womb. Because a woman’s stomach is not suitable to sustaining life, the body fights what it believes to be an infection by calcifying the unborn child. The result is a “stone baby” that can go undetected for years.
It’s interesting to note that even the laymen’s term for this condition, “stone baby” makes reference to the fact that what is inside the woman is indeed a baby. Just as kidney stones or gall stones refer to the type of stone growing inside a person, so too does this name, stone baby, refer to what is inside the woman: a baby.
Even when things don’t happen as they should in order to produce a healthy, living baby, the humanity of the unborn can be seen. Click here for original article.
Planned Parenthood officials are officially “disappointed” by the results of Plan B on the unintended pregnancy rate. They believed this abortion drug would be the answer to their perceived problem but it has not had an impact on the rate, which has stayed steady at 50% of all pregnancies. Planned Parenthood recently said: “While there’s a lot of data to show it can prevent pregnancy in individual women, we’ve all been disappointed that on the population level, it just hasn’t had the effect we hoped…The unintended pregnancy rate hasn’t changed at all.”
It’s almost as if Planned Parenthood cannot understand that many people are pro-life, and taking a drug that will kill a living human being is simply not an option. So whether the pregnancy is unintended or not, Plan B will not be considered. This is a simple way to explain the steady unintended pregnancy rate. It might be too simple for Planned Parenthood to understand. Click here for original article.
