TEENS REJECT 'SAFE SEX' EDUCATION
SUPPORT PARENTAL NOTIFICATION AND 'RIGHT TO LIFE'

By Bob McCoskrie

A nationwide poll of 600 young people aged 15-21 poll has found that
they hold conservative values on sex issues – which are significantly
similar to the views of parents.

SEX EDUCATION
When asked "Do you think sex education in schools should teach values,
abstinence and consequences such as pregnancy, or just teach safe
sex?" only 19% supported just the 'safe sex' message currently being
taught in schools, with one in three (34%) wanting 'values,
abstinence, and consequences such as pregnancy' taught instead, and a
further 42% asking for a combination of both – especially amongst
older teens. The support for just the 'safe sex' message dropped even
lower for the older teens.

"This is a direct rebuke from young people to the 'use a condom' and
'everyone's doing it' messages being pushed by groups like Family
Planning, AIDS Foundation and Rainbow Youth," says Bob McCoskrie,
National Director of Family First NZ.

"Many parents were rightly horrified last year when details of what
was being taught in schools under the guise of 'sex education'
surfaced. Judging by the results of the current approach – which is a
good place to start – sex education has been an utter failure. New
Zealand has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the OECD,
our STD rates are out of control and the number of teenage girls
having abortions continues to rise."

"For those youth who are sexually active, they are not being told the
truth. Groups like the Family Planning Association and the AIDS
Foundation are perpetuating the myth that as long as you use a condom,
you can pretty well do what you like in terms of promiscuity,
experimentation, and fringe behaviours – with little or no information
on the physical or emotional ramifications or prevention of disease."

In one example, a mixed class of boys and girls were asked by the AIDS
Foundation if they had masturbated lately and were given condoms and
strawberry-flavoured lubricant. They were also given a leaflet
featuring graphic pictures, terms including "c*ck" and "w*nk", and
advice on the best condoms. Reports last year highlighted that
children as young as 12 are being taught about oral sex and told it's
acceptable to play with a girl's private parts as long as "she's okay
with it". In other cases, 14-year-old girls are being taught how to
put condoms on plastic penises, and one female teacher imitated the
noises she made during org*sm to her class of 15-year-olds. One
concerned father took his 12-year-old son out of a sex education class
at his all-boy school after he came home upset about what had happened
during one of the lessons. It included a question-and-answer session
that focused on, "I have learned that my girlfriend has a thing called
a clit*ris. I really want to play with it. Is that okay?" The answer
was: "Yes, if you ask her and she's okay with it."

A poll of parents in 2010 found that three out of four parents of
young children want the abstinence message taught in sex education –
with 69% of kiwis overall supporting the 'wait' message.

PARENTAL NOTIFICATION
When asked "Provided it won't put the girl in physical danger, should
parents be told if their school-age daughter is pregnant and
considering getting an abortion?" 59% of young respondents thought the
parents should be told. 34% disagreed. More young men than women
agreed, but both had majority agreement.

"It is significant that even young people can see the importance of
having parents informed and involved, even when they know that those
same parents will be rightly disappointed and upset. This is a very
strong response from young people, and is a rebuke to the politicians
in 2004 who chose to exclude parents from this process when debating
the provision in the Care of Children Bill," says Mr McCoskrie.

According to the Care of Children Act 2004, access to abortion is not
restricted on grounds of age. Section 38 of the Act says that a girl
of any age can give consent to an abortion and that consent operates
as if it were given by her parents. Therefore, her parents need never
know that their daughter is having such a procedure. Family First is
aware of young girls being written to directly asking them to make an
appointment to have the Gardasil vaccine.

"This all effectively means that while a parent has to sign a letter
for their daughter to go on a school trip to the zoo or to play in the
netball team, they are totally excluded from any knowledge or granting
of permission for that same child to be put on the pill, have a
vaccine, or have a surgical abortion," says Mr McCoskrie.

When parents were asked a similar question in a 2010 poll, 79%
responded yes – only 12% said no.

Family First is asking for the law to be amended to allow for parental
notification in all cases of medical advice, prescriptions and
procedures unless it can be proved to a family court that it would
place the child at extreme risk.

"Parental notification laws in Texas, Michigan, Minnesota, and other
US states have seen a drop in both the pregnancy rate and the teen
abortion rate – a win-win situation for all concerned. This is
especially relevant when almost 80 teenagers a week have an abortion
in NZ," says Mr McCoskrie.

UNBORN CHILD'S RIGHT TO LIFE
When asked "Do you believe an unborn child or foetus has a right to be
born?" 56% of youth respondents said they believed an unborn child or
foetus has a right to be born. Slightly more young women than young
men agreed – 58% to 55%. Those aged 15 to 17 were strongest in support
– 66%.

"This is a pleasantly pro-life view from our young people. A decision
from the Court of Appeal last June that the law does not recognize or
confer a right to life on the unborn child sends a dangerous message,
and should make NZ'ers feel very queasy," says Mr McCoskrie.

"The message that an unborn child has absolutely no rights is
completely inconsistent with warning messages about prenatal alcohol
and drug use, recognising the unborn child as a victim with respect to
violent crimes on pregnant women, and even the report released by Sir
Peter Gluckman referring to 'environmental risks that occur
prenatally'.

"On the one hand we are imploring pregnant women to live a healthy
lifestyle to enhance the wellbeing of their unborn child, yet on the
other hand the courts are telling us that the child has no right to
life. That's a contradictory message that shows a complete disregard
for the most vulnerable. Just when does a child obtain the right to
live? 30 weeks? 40 weeks? In the birthing room? At the first Plunket
visit?" asks Mr McCoskrie.

Family First is calling for a law change that gives an unborn child
the same human rights as any other human being.

"Teenagers are right to say that we should not allow discrimination
against our most vulnerable."

The Curia Market Research poll surveyed 600 15-21 year olds
nationwide. The poll was conducted between 4 and 6 December 2011 and
has a margin of error of +/- 4.1%.

Narcotics' tangle
http://www.pakistantoday.com.pk/2012/01/narcotics%E2%80%99-tangle/

Pakistan Today Sunday, 8 Jan 2012 9:49 am

Drug addiction has made steady inroads in our community by eroding
almost all segments of society. This monster is playing with the lives
of our populace and has snuffed out many happy lives without any
remorse.

Afghanistan is acknowledged to be the largest producer of opium in the
world. On the other hand, our areas of FATA, KPK, and Balochistan are
not far behind in the cultivation of narcotics. Many families thrive
on this business for the sake of their survival. Nonetheless, today's
Pakistan has been declared a poppy-free country by the UN.

According to a UN report, cannabis is widely cultivated and is cheaply
and easily available. Pakistan being the primary conduit for drug
trafficking from Afghanistan has become primary victim of its
adversity. Even though, the price of opium has been increasing world
over; unfortunately, in Pakistan there are more than 628,000 opiate
users and out of which almost 500,000(77%) are heroin addicts.

The number of injecting drug users (IDUs) is exploding at phenomenal
proportions and is the main cause of the HIV/AIDS transmission.
Another report reveals that majority of opiate users were heroin
addicts and the remaining were addicted to opium, hashish, and
synthetic substances.

A survey of drug users showed that around eight percent were diagnosed
with HIV, 19% with tuberculosis and almost 11% with Hepatitis.
Majority of these addicts ranged in between age of 16 to 30 years,
with a smaller minority ranging in between 31 to 40 years and beyond.

Drug trafficking also identifies with gun and human smuggling through
cross-border infiltration by the militants. Through the porous Afghan
border, these drugs cross into the Iran, Pakistan, and Central Asian
States. Modus operandi adopted by the drug smugglers to traffic drugs
internationally includes smuggling by foot, roads, rails, and air.

Pakistan being the key transit hub for Afghan drugs has been
involuntarily implicated in the unwanted trade. This is a billion
dollars swap which is a flourishing business for drug mafias and
militants. Approximately 65,000 cultivators belonging to extremist
drug syndicates cultivate enough drugs in Helmand to procure drugs for
1500 paddlers which is enough to create a substantial black market
economy. The drug trade not only challenges state's writ but also
plays a major role in strengthen links between drug traffickers,
Taliban insurgents and criminals.

The book titled 'Narco Jihad' by Ehsan Ahrari posits that "a Narco
jihad is being funded by the opium related systems of trade in
narcotics in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Terrorist groups and trans-
national drug and crime syndicates are involved in protection, price
control, and distribution of opium to regional and global markets".
The whole game is managed by the "iron triangle" of corrupt officials,
the militants, and the warlords.

We have been unconsciously living with this menace without realising
its true horrors. We need diversification in our eradication efforts
pertaining to drug trafficking. These efforts include sealing the
border, denying the militants safe havens, and educating our public
about this peril. We also need to follow the money trail to cut the
funding which supports these nefarious activities.

To achieve this, all involved agencies have to be vigilant and the
government needs to introduce a new task force which will have the
capacity and capability to deal specifically with money trail which is
the life line for these despicable organisations. Economic growth and
improvement in law and order will jump start fragile economies of
Pakistan and Afghanistan which will alleviate poverty by new job
creations, eventually, cleansing our societies from this nuisance.

Government of Pakistan is utilising its limited resources to their
fullest extent. However, to control the dispersion of psychotropic
benzodiazepines, we need to adopt a new prescription drug policy which
will have sufficient safeguards to enforce the flow of these drugs.
There is a need to identify the criminals through surveillance and
close monitoring.

Pakistan and India have signed an MOU to enhance the cooperation
between these two countries which will help stem the flow of
narcotics. It is moral obligation for our policy makers and civil
society to educate our society about nuances of drug use so we can
eradicate this sinister phenomenon. We can't resolve these problems on
the fly. The task at hand is hard but as a nation we have the ability
and perseverance to exterminate this malignant cancer from our society
at large.

Kenyan girls sip sweet freedom after escape of early marriages

English.news.cn   2012-01-06
By Ejidiah Wangui
NARIOBI, Jan. 6 (Xinhua) -- At the tender age of 12, Rachel Naitoi woke up to a devastating reality. Her fears of early marriage, which had sent her into shivers, were being confirmed.
Her father had found her a husband.
The 47-year-old man supposedly her husband to be, had come to their home for the final bride price negotiations. As she puts it, her dream of one day becoming an accountant was shattered.
A last born child in her family, Naitoi lost her mother at a tender age. She says life after her mother's demise has not been easy.
"It was one of the difficult moments in my life, though it was not a surprise, I had learned about the planned marriage from my husband to be after he paid the bride price. My father never informed me, I woke up one day and found the man together with his friends at home when they wanted to take me with them," says Naitoi.
She could not hide her pain as she narrated her ordeal to Xinhua. "I wanted to complete my education but this seemed not to be, as I was in Class Four my father forced me to undergo circumcision, and in keeping with our traditions, once a girl is circumcised, she has to getmarried," she narrates.
Sad is the fact that Naitoi's alleged husband had two wives already. Determined to achieve her education vision despite the challenges, she ran away from her home on the eve of her "wedding day".
"I pleaded with my brother to assist me; he gave me 200 shillings and directed me to a place in Kajiado where I could help. Were it not for him, I would be someone's third wife," she says her eyes beaming with joy.
She boarded a train the same day and arrived in Kajiado where through the area chief's help, she was admitted at the Seventh Day Adventist educational and rehabilitation center, a haven for girls who have been rescued from Female Genital Mutilationand those forced into early marriages.
Although Naitoi had already undergone the cut, she was lucky enough to escape marriage as a third wife and is currently going on with her education at the center and aspiring to achieve her accounting career.
At the center, those who escape the knife undergo an alternative rite of passage.
Her story is similar to that of Kasaiyan Kaperu, 14, who is now in Class Three. She had also been circumcised and set to be married to a 52-year-old man.
"My mother informed me of my father's plan but she stood up with me and promised to help me though my father could hear none of her pleas to let me complete my education first," she says.
"I remember that day I was woken up by screams from my parents' room when my father beat up my mother for opposing the marriage, he chased her away the following day," she says.
With no one to turn to, Kasaiyan ran away from her home and sought refuge at the center.
Having never been to a classroom, teachers were forced to give her special attention. Other children of her age have already sat their Kenya Certificate of PrimaryEducation (KCPE), but she is now in Class Three. She is however determined to pursue her education to the end.
Kajiado educational and rehabilitation center is home to more than 200 girls rescued from FGM and early marriages. The center receives one girl each month.
According to an administrator at the center, even though parents have become more enlightened on the dangers of FGM, more awareness should be carried out if more girls are to be saved.
Perhaps with more information being availed to parents on the dangers posed by FGM, the retrogressive culture could be relegated to the dark past, the administrator told Xinhua.

Bitter Truth - Care for the cure

Around the globe, on land and in the sea, the story is much the same.
Spurred by poverty, population growth, ill-advised policies and greed,
humanity is at war with the plants and animals that share the planet.
The director of Missouri Botanical Garden predicts that if things go
on like this, during the next three decades man will drive an average
of 100 species to extinction every year. Extinction is a part of
evolution but the present rate is at least 1,000 times the pace that
has prevailed since pre-history.

Experts like Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson believe that even mass
extinction of dinosaurs 65 million years ago did not significantly
affect flowering plants. But these plant species are disappearing now.
And people, not comets and volcanoes, are angels of destruction.

In addition to creating a habitable environment, wild species are the
source of products that sustain our lives. More than 40% of all
prescription drugs are originally extracted from plants, animals,
fungi and micro-organisms. Hidden anonymously in clumps of vegetation,
ready to be bulldozed or burned, might be plants with cures for AIDS
and cancers. Janzen said: "I know of three plants with the potential
to treat AIDS. One grows in an Australian rain forest, one in Panama
and one in Costa Rica. So far fewer than 1% of the world's 2,65,000
plants have been tested for their curative powers."

Researchers exploring magic potions hidden in the forests discovered
the power of a forest shrub. Reports say that a chimpanzee in the
Tanzanian forest was severely ill. Almost dying, the ailing chimp
seemed to summon her last bit of energy. She dragged herself to a
Vernonia amygdalina (botanical name) bush which is seldom eaten by
chimps. She sucked on its shoots, swallowed the juice and spat out the
fibrous leftovers. By the next afternoon, she had perked up visibly.

This was the first time researchers had seen an animal's health
improve after it ate a plant with known medicinal value. Tanzanians
use Vernonia to fight parasites and gastrointestinal disorders. They
think it was no coincidence, because chimps rarely touch the bitter
shrub. The sick ape was probably not just looking for food, say
primatologists Michael Huffman and Mohamedi Seifu. Rather, she reached
out for the plant much as a human might do in such situations.

Since this discovery in 1987, researchers have found that chimps are
not the only species that use nature's medicine chest. In recent time
the American Association for the Advancement of Science has been
devoting sessions to "Zoopharmacognosy,"the use of medicinal plants by
animals. Primatologist Kenneth Glander says: "If these work for
primates, then they are potential treatment for humans."

To recognise medically useful plants, animals exploit more than trial
and error. Glander finds that howling monkeys in Costa Rica sniff and
taste-test plants to remove poisons from potions. The ability to make
that distinction may be partly a matter of natural selection.

Like other healthy primates, the chimps appear to favour an ounce of
prevention. Huffman reported in the AAAS meeting that chimps ate more
Aspilia and Vernonia during the rainy season, when they were more
susceptible to disease than during dry season. There is evidence that
primates' use of nature's drugs extends to obstetrics.

Primates may not be alone in exploiting plants for more than
nutrition. Navajo (a tribe in Tanzania) legend has it that bears
taught the tribe that a species of the "Ligusticum" plant can treat
worms, stomach aches and bacterial infections. Ethnobotanist Shawn
Sigstedt wondered if bears might indeed have taught Navajos to use the
shrub.

With scientists and microbiologists scouring the globe to findand gain
profit fromorganisms that could cure some of the world's worst
diseases, some exciting discoveries leading to the cure for malaria
appeared to be in sight. Indian microbiologist Deba Prasad
Chattopadhya, researching in the forest of the Andaman Islands, found
that the Onge tribes, although surrounded by mosquitoes, did not catch
malaria.

Deb was led into one of the Onge's secret room and shown a pot
containing a bitter medicinal brew. He was given several of the plants
that went into the potion. Back in the laboratory, he came upon what
he claims as a remarkable discoverytwo of the plants contained fever
reducing properties and the third reduced the number of malarial
parasites in infected human blood.

Deb soon had a chance to test the Onge's medicine. After several
jungle visits, he was struck with malarial fever. He swallowed juice
from the extract and was cured in three days, his fever has not
resurfaced. He also asked local doctors to experiment with the drug on
other patients suffering from other strains of malaria, including
falciparum, which can be fatal. The brew appeared to be effective on
each of the seven patients treated.

Bio-sleuths are everywhere. Hardy researchers equipped with laptop and
backpacks filled with tools for collecting samples, are busy
extracting saliva of vampire bats from Mexico and clinically testing
it for a substance that might dissolve blood clots in humans. In
southern India, botanists are spending time with Irula tribesmen in
hopes of determining which berries and plants local medicine men use
to cure cobra bites. Taxol, a drug derived from the bark found in the
rain forest, has been tested as a possible preventive for several
types of cancer.
