Feeling loved and wanted is an innate human need. Creating a human Life, who is raised by a loving family, is our great responsibility. Pregnancy is a gift of human life that, from its conception, is to be treated by its parents and their surrounding community as the precious human being that it is.
The power to create Life means that controlling birth starts with controlling our bodies potential ability to produce Life. Responsible human beings, who are not ready to lovingly parent another human life, should assertively practice effective forms of birth control before they start making sexually-active choices.
The deep respect for Life begins early. We must treat our own children with respect for their life as we teach them, by our own examples, of the beauty and the power of the human body’s potential ability to reproduce and create another Life.
Are we, and our growing children, really learning what the scope and power of being sexually active means to all of us long-term?
Are we instilling respect for this capability and taking humble responsibility for the power of it by teaching our growing children and other uninformed adults how to use their body’s capabilities more responsibly?
Is teaching our growing children how to wait to become sexually active until they are emotionally and physically ready to handle its many long-term effects being taught as a wise and viable, first-choice option? If not, why not?
