The British Daily Mail reports on a new 38-page study done using U.S. government-funded National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health, based at the University of North Carolina, which found that sexually active teen girls are twice as likely to suffer from depression than those who maintain their virginity.
The study involved more than 14,000 adolescents aged between 14 and 17.
It found that having sex apparently doubled the chances of girls becoming depressed, with 19 per cent of those who had sex exhibiting major symptoms of depression, compared with 9.2 per cent who had not had sex.
Sexual anarchists in Britain are, of course, spinning as hard as possible to try and dismiss the results, stating that "American attitudes" don't necessarily apply in Great Britain.
We can continue to ignore the fact that traditional morality exists for practical reasons, and continue the mounting cost to our children and our society.
Or we can accept that we can't live as if we are soulless animals, adjust our behavior accordingly, and live much happier lives.
The choice is ours. But we don't have the option of cheating the law of consequences.
