I started working on a project about four weeks ago (since before my last post) on the dangers of sexual freedom, especially among young people, and why parents should be involved in helping their children through these difficult decisions. This research, however, led to a number of other documents and stories which expanded the scope of the project so much that I have seriously considered writing a book about them. For the now, I will be writing a series of articles on a number of different subjects, so keep your eyes out.
To whet your appetite, look at this article written by Mr. K Edgardh, reprinted by NCBI. The article mentions the sexual freedom of the Swedes: sex education since the 1950s, abortion on demand since 1975, age of consent at 15, easy access to contraceptives, and "during the past 20 years, approximately 70% of all teenage pregnancies have been terminated by an abortion," with about 90% of those abortions at the request of a 15- or 16-year-old.
The article goes on to show how these risky behaviors are affecting the rest of society, and the personal health of those that engage in it. This is where America is heading: if we don't rein in the mindset of "children should be able to determine what is in their best interest without Mom and Dad's approval," they will be hurt--badly.
