ABSTINENCE
What Is It
And
How Can You Commit
To Being Sexually
Abstinent
Until You Are In An
Adult Committed
Relationship

Sexual Abstinence Means:
NO Sexual Intercourse:
(Penis in Vagina)
NO "feeling up"
NO Oral Sex
NO Anal Sex
NO Mutual Masturbation
ABSTINENCE must be practiced Correctly 100 percent of the time or It
WILL FAIL to Protect You
From:
Becoming Pregnant
STD's - (Sexually Transmitted Diseases)
HIV - (The Virus that Causes AIDS)
Should Teens Be Expected To Be Abstinent Throughout Their Teen Years
AND
Can They Be Abstinent?
YES ABSOLUTELY!
Parents, Teachers, Clergy, and other important adults in your life -
should let you know - and often - that they EXPECT you to remain
abstinent until you are in and Adult Committed Relationship
Life and Liberty for Women Expects That of YOU!

While It Is Not Easy to Remain Abstinent
YOU should know that YOU ARE Absolutely Capable
of setting Relationship Boundaries with your Boyfriend/Girlfriend
AND sticking to YOUR decision to remain
Sexually Abstinent
Alcohol Free
and Drug Free
How Not To Become Involved In These Risky Behaviors
1. COMMIT TO RESPECTING AND PROTECTING - First and Foremost -
YOURSELF
2. COMMIT to Protecting Your Future - The Future May Seem Along
Way Off To You Right Now - BUT IT WILL COME - and You Want it to
Be Filled With Fun and Opportunities NOT an Unintended pregnancy
- An STD - Or
A Certain Death from AIDS

3. Commit to Involving a Parent or Other Trusted Adult in Your Life
4. Be Involved In a School Sport or other School or Community Activity
5. Have a Part-time Job
6. Commit to Doing Well in School
7. Always Double Date
8. Don't Put Yourself in the Position of Being Alone with Your Date in
your house or theirs when Parents aren't home or Alone in a Bedroom

CONSEQUENCES OF AN UNINTENDED PREGNANCY
ALL THREE OPTIONS TO AN UNINTENDED PREGNANCY
HAVE LIFE-LONG CONSEQUENCES
Adoption - (closed and open)
Giving away your baby and parental rights to someone else
who will become your child's parents. In a closed adoption you'll
never have any contact with your child
Abortion:
terminating or ending the life of a pre-viable human fetus in the
uterus
Parenting:
a life long total commitment of time, money, and self-less caretaking
of another human being
RESPECT YOURSELF
PLAN FOR and PROTECT YOUR FUTURE
DON'T EVER PUT YOURSELF IN THE POSITION OF HAVING TO
MAKE SUCH A DIFFICULT AND LIFE ALTERING DECISION WHILE
STILL A TEENAGER

Life and Liberty for Women
 
Supports Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court Decision that
legalized Abortion in the United States, because the History of ILLEGAL
Abortion clearly shows us that it didn't stop desperate determined
women from having an abortion but it did make abortion more
dangerous to women's health and life
. Most women who died when
abortion was illegal - died from self-induced abortion.
Supports reducing the number of abortion performed in the United
States by reducing the number of unintended pregnancies through:
1. Abstinence-based age-appropriate comprehensive
sex education in schools

2. More birth control research
3. Better birth control availability - including health insurance coverage
of prescription female birth control
4. Men and Condoms - IF used correctly and consistently (100% of the
time) LATEX Condoms
are 98% effective in preventing pregnancy,
HIV, Bacterial STD's and offers some protection against viral STD's.
