I’m Waiting 21: Is Virginity A Disease?

[display_podcast]Recently we read an article in the The Washington Post about teen birthrates hitting an all-time low.  Part of the article jumped out at us.  Bill Albert, chief program officer for the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy was quoted as saying, “There has been a change in social norms that has happened in the past 20 years, and the idea of not having sex or delaying sex is now something that can be okay.” We wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Albert because w … [Read more...]
