Accuracy of the Summaries
The summaries of the studies on this website have gone
through an extensive review process to ensure that the
summaries are accurate. The following are the steps of the
As promoters of
chastity and abstinence as the only way to lower or
eliminate the risk of both unplanned pregnancy and
sexually transmitted diseases, we search for studies in
six areas: "Today's Risky Lifestyle Behavior," “The
Media’s Influence on Behavior,” "Today's Danger with
Sexually Transmitted Infections/Diseases," "Why
Contraception is Not the Answer," and "Why Abortion is
Not the Answer" and “The Consequences for the Future.” After obtaining
a study, it is read by staff with academic degrees in
Nursing, Social Work, or Sociology.
A summary is written
and reviewed by executive and legal staff.
Each summary and
study is sent to a review committee made up of medical
doctors, nurses, doctors of epidemiology, and
adjustments, if any, are made to the summaries before
they are posted to the website and sent to subscribers
through the e-mail subscription service.
You can read the studies yourself by obtaining them. We
have provided the citation following the summary of each
What the Summaries are not
The summaries are not a review of the accuracy of the
studies. Many of the actual studies have been peer-reviewed
by the publication that originally published them. Some of
the studies may not have been peer-reviewed; but may be
initial findings that require further research.
We select materials that confirm abstinence as the
healthiest lifestyle for unmarried young adults today. The
materials recite health statistics and/or describe medical
risks from recently published articles and studies and
include citations to legitimate authorities.
In addition, recent developments in health and science are
shared so you are provided with relevant information to
enable you to make an educated and informed decision about
what to do. Some of this information is initial research
that may require further study and research. Some studies
we summarize may conflict with other published scientific studies. We
believe you have a right to this conflicting information to
decide how to proceed.
