One of our goals is to eliminate teen pregnancy. So today we are excited that there is a national day just for that. What we are facing, though, is there are so many organizations out there who want to reduce teen pregnancy.
Is this a problem?
Yes. It's not that they want to reduce it, it is how they are going about it.
We teach abstinence. Across the board, everyone says that abstinence is the only 100% effective option in preventing pregnancy. (And also STI's)
Our goal is to end teen pregnancy. You would think we would welcome all who share this same goal. After all, aren't we all going in the same direction.
That's true, but in only in one aspect. Ending teen pregnancy.
But the "how" is way different. Their way is using birth control. Ours is abstinence. These are very different.
We know that sex is not just a physical thing. It's mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and environmental. It affects in all of these areas. The effect on the brain alone should be enough for people to choose abstinence until they are in a truly committed, no turning back, in it for life relationship. Using birth control only addresses the physical aspect.
Will you help us eliminate teen pregnancy? Will you help us teach students, parents and families to live purely for Christ?
We are looking to spread our message to as many people as we can. Will you connect us to your church, your pastor, your youth pastor, family pastor, missions pastor... Whomever!!!
