WEB Notes: Nearly one year ago we posted an article titled, “STDs Surge To 20-Year High“.

Today, the United States has record high rates. I wonder why…

Could it have anything to do with our lack of morality?

No, of course not.

Could it have anything to do with headlines like this from February of 2016, “HHS: Immigrants With HIV, STDs Welcome“?

No, of course not.

How about the hordes of illegal immigrants coming across our border?

No of course not. Even though they cost American tax payers a record $135 billion a year.

And it most definitely does not have anything to do with headlines like these:

Sexually transmitted diseases surged to a record high in the United States last year, with more than two million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis nationwide, officials said Tuesday.

This was “the highest number ever,” said the annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report released today by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Most of the new cases — 1.6 million in 2016 — involved chlamydia, a bacterial infection that affects both men and women.

Gonorrhea also increased among men and women last year, but the steepest rise was among men (22 percent), said the report.
