Media Alert: Charmaine on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell on Pro-Life Politics
Charmaine is back in Minneapolis-St. Paul for the GOP convention. Last night she worked the National Review and Weekly Standard
She has avoided the liberals who are smashing up St.Paul and beating up the (non-violent) cops. The liberals are hiding behind face coverings — like bandits.
This is legal in the Twin Cities.
Charmaine on an earlier appearance on ABC
Unrelated to the domestic terrorists, Charmaine will be debating a pro-abortion-choice woman and abortion in conservative politics, Jennifer Stockman.
Andrea Mitchell, from NBC, will be moderating. Check listings for MSNBC.
Hit time is 12:30 local time — 1:30pm Eastern.
Sex is always the theme — not with conservatives — but with liberals.
The Obama mantra would be that teens are going to do it, so let’s all educate them to be efficient, proficient [f-word deleted by Charmaine the Editrix] [no, it wasn’t THAT F-word…].
As long as they don’t smoke…
We can agree that it is best that teens don’t smoke.
We can agree that it is best that teens don’t drink.
So let’s agree that it is best that teens wait for sex.
We do not tolerant teens having a smoke.
We do not tolerant teens having a drink.
We should not tolerant teens having sex.
The Obama abortion defenders demand that the government teach safe sex techniques.
We do not teach safe drug use.
We do not teach safe alcohol use.
We do not teach safe cigarette use.
The goal in any human behavior is not perfection but to teach and work to the ideal.
If you are going to drink and drive, use a seatbelt.
If you are going to do drugs, use a clean needle.
If you are going to smoke, use filtered low tar.
If you are going to have sex, use a condom…?
This is liberal logic: We demand that children and teens be able to make adult decisions.
When adults set up the premise for failure for children and teens, (they are going to do it anyway…) we are condoning — not condemning the behavior. Somebody has to be the (discerning) parent.
Thank you (foot)notes,
The Abstinence Clearinghouse points us to The Heritage Foundation,
Christine Kim and Robert Rector of The Heritage Foundation, presented a comprehensive review of 21 prior studies of the effectiveness of abstinence and virginity pledge programs. Two thirds of these studies appeared in peer-reviewed publications.
“The overwhelming majority of prior studies of abstinence education report positive results,” Christine Kim said. “Sixteen out of 21 studies of abstinence education found youths who received abstinence education had lower rates of sexual activity or other positive behaviors, when compared to youths who did not receive abstinence training.”
Emphasis mine. Heritage continues,
Specifically, 11 of the 15 evaluations of abstinence programs reported positive findings. Five of the six studies of virginity pledges also reported positive findings…
Heritage also reminds us that the government funds sex ed $12 for every $1 in abstinence only. Abstinence only is outspent $12 to 1 by the government.
THE FEDERAL DEFINITION OF ABSTINENCE-ONLY EDUCATION, from the U.S. Social Security Act, §510(b)(2).
An eligible abstinence education program is one that:
A) has as its exclusive purpose, teaching the social, psychological, and health gains to be realized by abstaining from sexual activity;
B) teaches abstinence from sexual activity outside marriage as the expected standard for all school-age children;
C) teaches that abstinence from sexual activity is the only certain way to avoid out-of-wedlock pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and other associated health problems;
D) teaches that a mutually faithful monogamous relationship in the context of marriage is the expected standard of human sexual activity;
E) teaches that sexual activity outside the context of marriage is likely to have harmful psychological and physical effects;
F) teaches that bearing children out-of-wedlock is likely to have harmful consequences for the child, the child’s parents, and society;
G) teaches young people how to reject sexual advances and how alcohol and drug use increase vulnerability to sexual advances; and
H) teaches the importance of attaining self-sufficiency before engaging in sexual activity.
Alert Readers will recall that Charmaine and Your Business Blogger(R) sat in the President’s Box in DC’s Kennedy Center with Andrea Mitchell and Alan Greenspan. See The Devil Wears Prada and Alan Greenspan: Nuance and Silence.
See the Bill Bennett comment on the Palin family pregnancy on NewsBusters. It is refreshing to see conservatives on the attack.
