Do Sex Education and Access to Contraception Cut Down on Abortion? - KENNETH D. WHITEHEAD

All human generations previous to our own, and all known human societies besides our own, have understood that sex had to be controlled; and they have therefore maintained in place moral and legal checks and sanctions aimed at insuring the necessary control of the powerful and unruly human sexual drive for the good of both society and the individuals in it. Our plan to liberate sex by means of contraception and sex education has now manifestly failed.  Read more...

Don't Wear That Mini to Mass - Benjamin D. Wiker

As I have not received nearly enough hate mail of late, I thought it best to write something on modesty, this time modesty at Mass. I realize, of course, how delicate this subject is, but I also know that I am not the only one disturbed by immodesty.

Educating for Character in the Sexual Domain - Thomas Lickona

Before the sexual revolution, the societal norm was to treat sex as a serious matter, requiring prudent moral boundaries that channel this powerful drive in ways that benefit, rather than hurt, the individual, family, and society.  More recently, popular culture has made sex seem like a casual thing.  But in truth, as growing evidence makes clear, sex is an act that is full of consequences.  That is a good reason to save it for marriage, and a good reason for character educators to support that goal.  Read more...

Engaging Dawn Eden’s Thesis - "revised"1 - Janet E. Smith

Fighting AIDS with African Common Sense - Jennifer Roback Morse

Amid reports that the United Nations has been grossly overestimating the scope of the global AIDS pandemic, a new book points to what may be an even greater miscalculation: AIDS relief efforts have failed to understand the crucial role of family and community networks in controlling the disease.  Read more...
