From the Huffington Post:
According to new government reports, there are nearly 20 million new cases of sexually transmitted infections each year in this country.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that nearly half of these new infections occur in people between ages 15 and 24.
Researchers also found that there are 110,197,000 cases of STIs in total in the United States right now, including those occurring in people who newly contracted an infection and those who have been living with an infection. Young people between ages 15 and 24 make up more than 20 percent of the overall cases of both new and established infections.
Let me get this straight:
- There is one sexually transmitted infection for every three people in the United States.
- There are 20 million new infections each year
- This costs us $15,600,000,000 annually
Apparently “free sex” comes with a price tag after all. The sexual revolution kills, cripples, and bankrupts its own participants.
When will the intelligentsia learn that the solution to our current mess is not to wear a condom, but to keep your pants up until marriage? When will we learn that there is a reason God has designed sex to be expressed in marriage alone? We would be so much better off if we followed God’s commands.
I also find it amazing that lawmakers want to target smokers and the obese because of the associated medical costs, and yet ignore the price tag of the sexually promiscuous. Political correctness once again.
