Read in today’s newspaper “Increase in sale of emergency pills. Doctors say that easy availability of emergency pills has led to an increased carelessness towards safe sex, even leading to more abortions”.
And then read yesterday “99 cases reported of swine flu and people are walking with masks on their faces. But there are lakhs of cases of AIDS and still people are hesitant to use condom”.
Both these items made my dormant mind to come back to life.
The so called magic pills --I pills and Unwanted 72 pills which are easily available at any chemist are meant for rape victims to save them from getting victimized because of no fault of theirs or for married couples who want to plan their families and thus help in controlling the population of the country.
I don’t think these pills are meant for immature teenagers who are still coming in grips with their sexuality and increasing demands of their growing body.
We hear of so many cases of abortions of unmarried girls ( a survey conducted in Mumbai during Navratri days revealed that cases of abortions suddnely shoot up after navratris)
With the easy availability of these so called magic pills unmarried girls and boys will not think twice before indulging in premarital sex.
The sudden panic of finding oneself pregnant after a quick session of sexual satisfaction has just vanished from the minds of over enthusiastic, over stimulated young couples. There will be no moral restrain on budding minds, no fear of society, no dread of parental discipline.
Moreover the blooming young boys will not take precautions and will easily fall prey to much dreaded HIV syndrome. (Why should they bother about any repercussions on the girls, it is not their headache now. The girls can easily pop up a pill and all tension is over). Even the girls are moving on the same wave length. Gone are the days of panic of finding oneself burdened with results of temporary physical pleasures? The days of parental confrontations and explanations have flown away.
Live in relations, mixing with members of opposite sex, easy access to secluded areas all are contributory factors in continuously decreasing values.
I may be sounding old fashioned and many of my blogging buddies may pass my post as OH! It is generation gap. She doesnt understand the present day, fast moving , savvy youngsters.
But is it really that?
Has the concept of society and parents permission (in the form of marriage) before enjoying the physical pleasures becomes obsolete?
Have the satisfaction of carnal desires superseded the moral values of today’s generation?
what kind of character building traits will the so called modern youth pass on to their progeny?
