Want to end abortion?
Want to end teen pregnancy?
Want to end the spread of sexually transmitted diseases?
Want to strengthen marriage?
Want to strengthen the family?
Want to eliminate the culture wars?
I have the solution. Guaranteed.
It may seem a bit old school, but if society were to follow a few simple steps, all of these things would disappear within a generation. Here goes:
- Abstain from sexual activity prior to marriage.
- Never engage in sexual activity with anyone other than your spouse.
- Embrace the God-given gift of fertility and be open to life, always.
That’s it. It’s that simple.
Abstaining from sex before marriage resolves most of the abortions and unwanted pregnancies, including with teens. Staying true to your spouse would eliminate the transmission of sexual transmitted diseases. It would also strengthen marriage. Embracing fertility and being open to life will strengthen the family unit and eliminate abortion completely.
Implementation of all of these things would eliminate the culture wars in short order.
Not easy, but simple.
It requires discipline, faith and a high level of self respect. It requires control and thought and rising above our baser instincts. It requires us first remembering as creation in God’s image before devolving to simple animals.
But, it’s possible. It’s practical.
And it would work.
