Family ties, not condoms, protect teens’ health

December 2nd, 2013 Comments off
Some paediatricians do not agree with dishing out condoms to teen patients.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, a national organization of pediatric healthcare providers, recently issued a position statement that advocates pediatricians not only teach teens how to use condoms but also to dispense them in the office. Intuitively, this makes sense. Used correctly and consistently, condoms decrease the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted infections (STI’s) and unwanted pregnancies. Therefore, increased availability of condoms coupled with more education Read more…

Jase and Missy Robertson of Duck Dynasty: Stay a Virgin Until Marriage

November 25th, 2013 Comments off

by Steven Ertelt

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson went viral earlier this year when he talked about his pro-life views, asking America about abortion, “What in the world happened to us?”

Robertson said at the time: “Listen, from the time you started inside your mother’s womb, Thomas Jefferson had it right, you have the God-given right to life for crying out loud. You’re this long (pointing to his finger). You’re a week old inside your mother. They suck you out of there when you’re about like that (point to finger again). You wouldn’t be here tonight!” Read more…

In Sweden, abortion rates jump despite plentiful supply of Plan B pill

June 26th, 2013 Comments off

by Charlie Butts

Even though Plan B – the “morning-after” pill – was introduced in Sweden 12 years ago, the number of abortions has increased in that country.

The Swedish Association of Midwives says the organization was surprised and saddened to see abortions rise from 18.4 per 1,000 women in 1997 to 20.9 per 1,000 women last year, United Press International reported. Read more…

Detox your love life

June 10th, 2013 Comments off

by Tamara Rajakariar

Detox is all the rage these days. Detox your body with the so-and-so diet, cleanse your inner energy with this type of meditation, detox your life and find yourself at this exotic place… you get my gist. Most of these seem a bit far-fetched to me personally, but this new book on relationship “detox” seems like it could be a find. Read more…

HPV vaccine gets behaviour tick

October 16th, 2012 Comments off

by Carolyn Moynihan

This last paragraph is most key:

However, evidence that sexual activity does not increase among young teenagers vaccinated should not alleviate concern about the general sexualization of this age group and its effects on physical and moral health. Nearly a third of children 14 to 19 years old are said to be infected with HPV. If that is correct, there is a lot to worry about that the HPV vaccine cannot address. Its very necessity shows how badly a generation of children has been let down by the collapse of social support for pre-marital chastity. Read more…

September 18th, 2012 Comments off

By

As anyone who’s read my abstinence column here at Fox News Opinion could guess, my wedding is something that I’ve looked forward to for quite some time. After having tied the knot at the end of August, I can now say beyond all shadow of a doubt, that it was everything I’d hoped and prayed that it would be since childhood. (I’d also prayed to be bitten by a radioactive spider and develop sticky hands, but… I was an idiot.) Read more…

August 28th, 2012 Comments off

by Katie Hinderer

Recently I was talking with a friend who planned on attending a wedding the following weekend. The groom was a college friend who had stood up in her own wedding; while the bride she had only met a few times. In the midst of our conversation about the wedding and what my friend would wear she made a comment that caught me completely off-guard. Read more…
