SHOCKER: Sexually Transmitted Diseases on the Rise

A few days ago the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its most recent findings on sexually transmitted diseases in the U.S. Rates of the three most common STD's – chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis – all increased between 2013 and 2014.

And while this is tragic news, it should come as no surprise. After all, most school districts use "comprehensive sex education" curricula, which present abstinence as one of many choices, and "safer sex" as another. "Safer sex" usually translates to mean condoms, which the CDC itself says may reduce the transmission of STD's. Nothing is guaranteed to prevent them. Except abstinence, of course.

So what does the CDC recommend as a result of these new findings? That sexually active women under the age of 25 get annual screenings.

Interesting that when it comes to the health risks of smoking, the CDC doesn't take such a passive approach. They strongly discourage smoking, offer tips for quitting, and even offer testimonials from people living with smoking-related diseases.

You can read about the CDC findings on STD's here.



• Read about reviving chastity in "Facing Chastity: The Unpopular Virtue We Need To Make a Comeback" and in "Saved Sex: Loving Our Young People Enough to Tell Them the Truth."



• And learn more about sex education curricula in "Sex Re-education: A Parent's Guide to Sex Ed."
