This article from the Daily Telegraph records the soaring rate of teen pregnancies in the UK. They have the highest rate of teenage girls getting pregnant in the developed world, and half of them now end by killing the baby.
The pro aborts actually say publicly that the 50% abortion rate is a good thing because the stigma of abortion is being lifted. Meanwhile the government ministers admit that the trend is ‘disturbing’ and believe the solution is yet more explicit sex education, more free condoms and other contraceptives.
It’s madness: Keep doing the same thing and expect a different result. “Oh. Throwing that gas on the fire didn’t make it go out!! I guess we didn’t throw enough. Let’s get that big barrel of gas over there and throw that on.”
Even accepting the premise that contraceptives are ok (which I don’t) the whole scheme is just about as stupid as stupid can be. Do these people not understand what it is like to be a teenager? Haven’t they read all the studies that explain how the male teen mind does not have the chemicals to adequately connect actions with consequences?
It was summed up by a friend of mine, “Geesh, my teenaged son can’t even put his socks in the laundry basket when he takes them off. Does anybody think he will remember to put on a doodad before jumping in the sack? Once he and the girl have had a couple of drinks the idea of responsibility is totally out the window.”
Technically throwing enough gasoline on the fire will put it out, probably by burning off all the near by oxygen and/or entirely consuming that which was burning.That would be counter-productive.
My local council has become the first in the UK to offer gift vouchers for teenagers to come forward for Chlamydia testing. Just about sums the situation up. The vouchers are worth £5 and can be spent in local DVD shops, fashion stores and music outlets.The government is obviously running scared after this week’s statistics on teenage abortions.They supressed an independent study in 2006 which gave the true figure of STDs among teenagers. Healthworkers have been telling them for years that the crisis is looming.Their conciences are clearly biting. Now they’re offering the price of a sandwich to calculate the true figure of our crisis.Horse. Stable. Bolted.
The stigma of abortion is gone – the stigma of unwed births is gone – When I speak publicly on pro-life issues, I often worry that because I “seem fine” and I speak of God’s healing; that those listening to me may come up with the conclusion that abortion, while never ‘okay’ is okay because I seem to be fine.Internally, a wretch like me is only fine due to the grace of God’s mercy.England is in such a mess with their youth because they refused to believe that their turning a blind eye would result in anything other than business as usual.The U.S. is also turning a blind eye – and the world is suffering …Oh Lord, hear our prayers for our children – our future – that we may not worry about what our children want, but worry about and give them what they need – good moral grounding.
I do not think that the stigma of abortion is gone. I think the cries have been muffled.
