Statistics and experience demonstrate that the Biblical prescription for sex within marriage is best for our kids. Few disagree that the well-being and future of American youth are threatened by alcohol and drug use, cigarette smoking and violence.

Dear Counsellors, I am a year-old student at the university. I am also a member of the Christian Union and a staunch Anglican.

Many teenagers are suffering physically, emotionally, and spiritually because of the lack of proper teaching by their parents, teachers, doctors, counselors, and pastors concerning sexual intercourse. This ungodly teaching has led to an increase in fornication, an increase in pregnancies, an increase in sexually transmitted diseases, and increase in abortions, and an increase in spiritual poverty. Teenagers must be taught the Biblical truth that fornication is a sin with a great price.
Under the Common Lawthe crime of fornication consisted of unlawful sexual intercourse between an unmarried woman and a man, regardless of his marital status. If the woman was married, the crime was Adultery. Today, statutes in a number of states declare that fornication is an offense, but such statutes are rarely enforced. On the theory that fornication is a victimless crime, many states do not prosecute persons accused of the offense.
