U.S.: Sexually Transmitted Diseases Surge To Record High

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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.

  1. It breaks my heart to hear that these sexually transmitted disease are spreading to so many humans when it is so much easier to substain from having any sexual activity outside of marriage and if single practicing celibacy. Society tells people that open sexual expression is ok, but this is the work of Satan. We need to stay strong and faithful to God’s commandments.

  2. and one wonders why our Father goes through all the trouble of explaining how to live healthy in the flesh—via food rules of clean and unclean, sexual activities, and farming methods. You are correct; they are willingly ignorant–but the false teachers don’t help either.
