Never before in human history has there been such a coordinated campaign to convince humans to dishonor the design of their bodies. Since the onset of the Sexual Revolution in the 1960s, there has been a concerted effort to thwart the normal functioning of biology. It seems no coincidence that the era of “free love” was birthed around the same time that hormonal contraceptives were introduced, promising predictable prevention of unwanted births.
Hippies were told to “enjoy” free love, to throw off the marital inhibitions of their parents. But to do so, to copulate without constraint, necessarily resulted in certain consequences: did anyone really want to bring a child into the world with that guy or gal they just met yesterday? Alas! What to do? For some, the “pill” became the fuel for the engine of sexual promiscuity, promising sexual pleasure unhinged from sexual responsibilities, an unprecedented upheaval in the ordering of human relations.
The advent of hormonal contraception was initially presented as a means for married couples to space the birth of their children. But in short order, laws prohibiting the sale of such contraceptive medication to the unmarried were ruled “unconstitutional”. Over time, sex outside the bounds of marriage became more and more common, as sex came to be seen merely as a recreational activity, that deserved, in an enlightened world, to be detached from cumbersome, lifelong commitments.
