One third of our population has a sexually transmitted disease. The information I have read says there are 20 million new STD cases! We have the highest rate of STDs in the world and 15 to 24 year olds account for 50 percent of new cases each year. It costs us $16 billion a year to treat them and 24 percent being treated still have unprotected sex! Chicago kindergarten teachers have to conduct 30-minute sex education classes a month!!

I have also read that America has the highest teen pregnancy rates in the industrialized world and two thirds of those 15 to 24 engage in oral sex. One of every four teen girls has at least one sexually transmitted disease. Eighteen percent of all women in America have been raped and 16 to 19 year olds are three and a half times more likely rape victims. Thirty percent of all Internet traffic goes to adult sites and 70 percent of men 18-24 visit a porn site at least once a month! An average high school boy spends two hours on a porn site weekly. Women under 30 are having over half their babies born out of wedlock. Law Enforcement estimate about 600,000 Americans and 65,000 Canadians trade dirty pictures of children online!

I have also read that there are 6.8 marriages to every 1,000 people and that 89 percent of all porn come from America. One of every three children has no father at home. Sexual assaults are at an all time high in our military. Sixty million abuse booze/22 million illegal drugs. Twenty percent of us take five prescription drugs and 70 million are on mind-altering drugs! Americans are the most obese on a list list that goes to 100. It appalls me! We have gone down the toilet in morals, and our children suffer. Wake up!
