Contraceptives only a quick fix, won’t curb teenage pregnancies

In the article, Nicholas suggests including sex education in the competency-based curriculum and mourns the refusal of the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development.

He argues that while pornographic content, unfortunately, is widespread, vice teaches Sex education will teach good values. So far his essay looks reasonable, but is that it?

“Sex education” is a euphemism – terminology that is meant to sound good but means the exact opposite.

Nicholas points this out found that KICD stakeholders have proposed a sex education curriculum.

Most likely, it was a version of comprehensive sex education (CSE) that has always had negative responses from the church and other moral purists.

These critics have long exposed the joke that CSE is. The truth is that CSE has these three principles among others:

The first is that sex education should be morally neutral; no right and wrong talking. The LGBTQ + ideology is taught to school children and under this umbrella immoral and unnatural behavior is presented as “okay”.

Minors are taught that enjoying sex is a right to only use contraception or abortions should if that fails.

Second, sex education should be explicit enough, thus emphasizing “knowledge, attitude, skills”. They insert “age-appropriate” to fool the naive. Basically, it is pornography that is openly taught and advocated.

Third, sex education should be free from parental supervision. Children are taught their “rights to sex” which parents have no right to interfere with.

Nicholas appears to be in favor of contraception. I don’t. I think contraception is wrong.

Good. When we teach contraception to children, we are implicitly encouraging sexual activity. While our goal is to reduce teenage pregnancies, we will not solve the cause.

We would pave the way for an unprecedented marital crisis. Instead, we should solve the cause. Teenage pregnancies are a resulting problem, contraception only a seemingly quick fix, but one that instead fuels problems.

The main cause, I believe, is the moral breakdown, the abandonment of our Africans and religious people Ideals. Sexuality must take its rightful place among our values. We have to understand it anew, as sacred, solemn and a reality that is only suitable for marriage.
