Just in time for Valentines Day, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control released data Wednesday revealing that 20 million new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are diagnosed each year nationwide, costing some $16 billion in taxpayer funds.
Half of the 20 million new infections affect people ages 15 to 24 - who only make up a quarter of the population,l according to the statistics.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) tops the list as the most common infection followed by chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, hepatitis B, HIV and trichomoniasis.

As they say...God will not be mocked.
Does that mean that through Obamacare we will be forced to pay for other people’s birth control, abortions, erectile dysfunction, sex changes AND venerial disease treatments?
How many fags have passed on HIV??? OOPs...sorry....We all know HIV is not a fag thing.
happy VD day everyone
Who do you think has been paying for all the AIDS treatments??
Ah the good old days of Woodstock.
well when many little girls are being brought up by the schools or lazy parents and told not to respect themselves , to be sluts as it;s called women’s power nas rights, when boys are told to just get it in there and when young kids are brought up thinking there is no responsibility , well of course this is the crap we get.
The left are insane, insanity is doing the same ting over and over and expecting a different result, whether it be spending, green energy or sex.
They cannot accept that their agenda and policies keep failing
how long has cancer been about?
Now how ling HIV and AIDS, mostly a turd , feces pushing disease?
Yes weird how in the 80’s when AID’s came out they quickly moved to get a cure and yet cancer whilst many good things have worked it still kills too many .
to put the 20 million in perspective, that’s roughly 33% of the population of the UK.
“Now how ling HIV and AIDS, mostly a turd , feces pushing disease?”
A doctor I knew when I lived in Ireland called ‘em ‘dung punchers’...
you think they think their policies are failing? they want to take the country down. moral decay is just one area of focus. they may say they don’t but their actions show otherwise.

Overheard hubby tell the kid on his way out the door this morning:
“No means No, Herpes is forever, if another dude puts the moves on you, though you might want to knock him out, run instead - he might have HIV. PS... have a good time!”
Awww...those father-son moments are priceless :-)
Tell him he is old enough for sex when he moves out and gets a job!
Moral decay which they will deflect onto conservatives by saying that we won't approve "healthcare for all."
I have an underling at work with this attitude. She thinks we should just "give everyone healthcare." I feel like asking the glaring, unasked questions: WHO is the giver? WHO is "everyone?" For WHAT? WITH what?
Fifty years ago VD was virtually unknown around here. In the last thirty five years things have changed. You can’t pick up a skank at a bar without catching something.
Do STD’s send a message about monogamy?
In 2011, African Americans had 17 times the reported gonorrhea rates as Whites.
