This study is from the Institute for American Values. Despite their name, they are not conservatives. It was done by Norval Glenn and Elizabeth Marquardt.

If you download the 88 page PDF, the first few pages are an executive summary.

There are a couple of things that really struck me about this IAV study on hooking-up.

First, this one from p. 15:

A notable feature of hook ups is that they almost always occur when both participants are drinking or drunk.

A Rutgers University student observed, “You always hear people say, oh my gosh, I was so drunk, I hooked up with so and so…” Perhaps not surprisingly, many noted that being drunk helped to loosen one’s inhibitions and make it easier to hook up. A number of students noted that being drunk could later serve as your excuse for the hook up…

Consequences of a Sexually Desensitized Society

In a review of many scholarly journals studying negative effects on youth, sexual promiscuity and early sexual activity, are listed as a risk factor along with drug use, delinquent behavior, and violence. However, society is now changing its standards, and is actually encouraging what once was considered (and still is) a risk factor. The encouragement of promiscuity and experimentation along with “sexual rights” are desensitizing our society to sex, and the consequences are great.

Promiscuous behaviors and beliefs are not only risk factors in themselves, they are also a catalyst for a variety of negative consequences. Widely known is their potential for causing pregnancy and STD’s. Other less known consequences are confusion and the destruction they cause to relationships.

During sexual intimacy powerful chemicals are released in the brain. One of these chemicals is oxytocin, also known as the “cuddle hormone.” Oxytocin plays a role…

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood markets abortion on the backs of children

The abortion lobby is trying to redefine pro-choice w/ terms like Reproductive Justice.

Why?

Let’s let Planned Parenthood’s prez, Cecile Richards tell you:

The ‘pro-choice’ language doesn’t really resonate particularly with a lot of young women voters,” Richards told the New York Times.

Votes matter- because VOTES translate into BIG DOLLARS for the six digit salaries tax funded that Planned Parenthood employees make !

So…how will the killers of unborn children and some women change their image?

Again- we bring you Cecile Richards:

We’re really trying to focus on, what are the real things you’re going to lose? Sometimes that’s rights. Sometimes that’s economic or access to health care for you or for your kids.”

Case in point is this tweet:

Obama Administration Shifts Abortion Pill Payment Onto Insurance Companies

By Heather Clark – Posted at Christian News Network:

birth-control-pillsWASHINGTON – Faith-based organizations across the country continue to express objection to the abortion pill mandate in Obamacare after the Obama administration rolled out a new rule on Friday that shifts the burden of paying for abortion-inducing contraceptives onto insurance companies.

As previously reported, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision in June that the federal government cannot force closely-held companies to obey regulations which violate the owners’ religious beliefs. The ruling was a victory for the Christian owners of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, who objected to Obama’s abortion pill mandate on the basis of their religious beliefs. Hobby Lobby has been providing birth control coverage to employees for years, but took issue with four contraceptives that it considered to be abortifacients.

Review: Preparing for Motherhood: The Inside Scoop on Your New Job

Preparing for Motherhood

A useful little book that I got for the expecting mothers in our church, it is a useful tool as a pastor to use and pre-birth counseling.  It is short and readable and great to prompt discussion.  I appreciated the author’s emphasis on praying before the baby arrives.  The main emphasis of the book is actually on praying but it touches on different prayers for the parents-to-be and the baby.  Has practical wisdom here and there but always a reminder to the reader that the primary concern for a new parent for their child ought to be spiritual.  How I used it in our church is to have the couple highlight two or three things from it so that we can share about what they learn and also the couple’s discussion generated from the book.  A helpful resource.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Is Not Pro-Life, But Can Be

By Sunny Shell – Posted at Abandoned to Christ:

The extraction of stem cells from unborn babies is completely unnecessary for this or any research. There are many other options for stem cell research where the opportunity to live is not callously stripped away from one person so another person can live.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ASL) commonly known as Lou Gherig’s Disease, is a fatal neuromuscular disease that presently has no cure. No ALS patient is alike. Some people experience a slow degeneration, while others experience a more rapid degeneration of the motor neurons in their brain and spinal cord that disperse messages to allow voluntary muscle function throughout their body. Variant rates of motor neuron degeneration allows for patients diagnosed with ALS to live anywhere…
