The Argentinean Society of Medical and Biological Ethics is warning that sexual ethics in the country are rapidly declining.
In a statement published by the AICA news agency on June 16, the society said the troubling outlook is based on various signs, such as the high production and sales of condoms at a rate of nearly 500,000 per day.
“Each year 18,000,000 packets of contraceptive pills are produced, which by law are distributed free-of-charge, as well as 4,000,000 packets of the morning-after pill, which are also free. The huge costs are covered by the state with tax dollars,” the society stated.
It also lamented the continuous push for “sexual education,” which has only led to an increase in teen pregnancies, promiscuity and sexual activity.
The society said the number of marriages and births is falling each year, turning Argentina into “a huge country with great riches but uninhabited, with demographic numbers in the red.”
Prostitution and the attention given to same-sex unions have become increasingly accepted, it said. “Rabbi Abraham Skorka was right when he said on TV: ‘Today we are living in extreme selfishness, and this is apparent in sexual matters as well, as each person seeks to satisfy his own fancies and there is no dialogue of love,” the society concluded.
