I would like to point out where their logic has led us.
It’s led us to cheap sex. Sex without consequences is also sex without meaning. Sex is supposed to lead to intimate emotional bonding, relational stability, and family. When it is abused, it leads to broken relationships, fatherless children, emotional scarring, and moral callousness. What counselor cannot attest to the devastation of the abuse and misuse of sex?
It has led to the devaluation of children and family. Some people value their boats more than their children. Some view children as an impediment to achieving their financial goals. Some pawn them off from birth onto others to raise.
It has led to the death of manhood. Dogs can have sex. Men raise children and take care of their families. But when expectations dictate that women are responsible for not getting pregnant, boys are given free passes to act like dogs.
It has led to the death of modesty. From toddlers with tiaras to 13-year-old girls in bikinis at local car washes, we train young women to be objects of lust.
It has led us to abandon responsibility and accountability. We understand that all health care providers should cover cancer, because cancer is a disease that attacks its victims. But to cover reproduction? Sex is a choice, not a disease.
Isn’t removing the consequences of behavior a prescription for a generation of self-absorbed, entitled people who don’t take responsibility for their actions?
