As an abstinence speaker, former social worker and former crisis pregnancy center director, I’ve seen the devastation, too.
So I added my amen to her post by leaving this comment:

Do yourself a favor. Do your kids a favor. Do your country a favor. Educate yourself. Educate them. You can start here: Public Service Announcement: It Ought to Come with a Warning.
And then speak up. Speak up and Love.
