Unwed Pregnancies are a Product of Western Culture

Pregnant Mom Stress

In a recent article on sex education at The Week, the question was posed, “Should sex educators teach kids about pleasure?”  The responses were mixed, and the comments were along the same line—they’re going to do it anyway.

This has been the common refrain with discussions of birth control, abortion and unwed moms, but rather than going down the path of deciding the best method of prevention, I would rather like to focus on the fact that these problems are of our own design.

Like many things, unplanned pregnancies and unwed sex are the result of Western culture—specifically how we’ve chosen to view courtship, love, and marriage.

I believe that we have done our children a great disservice by changing from the traditional marriage arrangement with parental involvement for the betterment of the family to one that is based on emotions, feelings, and impulses.
