Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as “safe sex.” When people are sexually active, they run the risk of contracting a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD), Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI)*, or becoming pregnant, regardless of how “safe” they are.
Pro-abortion organizations, like Planned Parenthood, have been selling the lie that people can practice “safer-sex” with limited physical or emotional repercussions. But, they can only guarantee safer sex, not foolproof, perfectly dependable “safe-sex.” What they are not telling young people is that any type of sexual activity, including or excluding intercourse, puts you at a high risk for receiving a sexually transmitted infection or disease. While contraception has been presented as ways to create a “safe” environment for sex, the level of security that they offer are often over-exaggerated.
As pro-life students, it is important that you are not only informing your peers about abortion, but about the only preventative measure they can take to avoid the situation all together. Share the truth about the risks involved with being sexually active.

How to Use the Box:
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and “love” in the air, now is a great time to plan a campaign at your school to share the truth about sex. With the flyers and literature provided, pick a week that you will focus on getting the information out.
Day one – Hang the flyers around your school.
Day two – Distribute the brochures and post cards throughout the school or your hallways. Feel free to make your own
Day three – Host a young, relatable speaker to talk about healthy relationships or sexual health.
Day four – Set up a table around lunch time with valentines and candy to distribute. Staples facts about the risks involved with sex to each piece of candy.
Day five – Place the LoveFacts drop cards around your school, particularly in the bathrooms and common areas. You can also distribute information about your local Pregnancy Resource Center.
*What’s the difference between an STD and an STI – All STDs start as an STI, but not all STIs will become STDs. People who are infected may or may not show signs of the infection. Therefore, you may have sex with someone presuming that they are STI/STD free! Although not all STIs will lead to a disease, it still is a threat to your health and to the health of your current and future partners.
