    Surge Summary: Those who want to crow about the effectiveness of condoms must face up to the facts about the failures of condoms – and the failures of the sexual revolution.

    [Editor: National Condom Week just ended, but this column’s insights are still worth the read.]

    “Planned Parenthood’s National Condom Week is a dangerous fraud,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

    “Celebrated” February 14-21, National Condom Week is also known as Safe Sex Week. “That’s a self-serving lie,” Morse said. “Condoms fail. One study found that access to condoms in schools increases teen fertility by 10%.”

    Even Planned Parenthood itself states on its website: “If you use condoms perfectly every single time you have sex, they’re 98% effective at preventing pregnancy. But people aren’t perfect, so in real life condoms are about 85% effective — that means about 15 out of 100 people who use condoms as their only birth control method will get pregnant each year.”

    “What they don’t tell you is that over time, the failure rate adds up to something much higher. That 15 out of 100 pregnancy rate is for each year of using the condom. Year after year, sooner or later, your chance of getting pregnant goes up.

    According to an essay in the New York Times, the failure rate after 10 years of typical condom use is 86%. If you roll the dice often enough, sooner or later, you get snake eyes. To suggest otherwise reinforces a dangerous myth.”

    “But that’s good business for Planned Parenthood. Most of its income comes from the 345,000 abortions it performs each year. And these abortions are usually the result of a failure of condoms or another form of birth control.”

    “When those condoms they encourage inevitably fail, the nation’s largest abortion provider will ‘help’ the woman ‘terminate’ the ‘unwanted pregnancy.’ It’s great for Planned Parenthood, but not so great for the woman whose body is traumatized or the unborn child whose life is ended.”

    “In reality,” Morse said, “there is only one type of safe sex: within the marriage of two people who’ve made a lifetime commitment to each other.”

    “The Sexual Revolution claims you can have all the sex you want and nothing bad will happen to you or anyone around you. This is a lie. Planned Parenthood is the chief disseminator of this lie. Condom Week, or Safe Sex Week, which ironically begins on Valentine’s Day, should be shunned as the fraud that it is.”
