OH the shame: An event state's residents shouldn't be proud of

A Big Ten university known nationwide for its football prowess is inviting its students to take part in a "Sex Week" coming up later this month. Cleary, it's an invitation to participate in risky behavior, says a family advocate in that state.

The Ohio State University is planning to hold a "Sex Week" from February 11-17. It's sponsored by a student group called Student Advocates for Sexual Health Awareness (SASHA). The Sex Week website invites students to an event that will teach students about what crisis pregnancy centers are, and how they are dangerous alternatives for actual reproductive healthcare. At one event, according to The Daily Caller, students will get to send Valentine cards to abortion providers.

Other meetings during the week will examine the history of queerness, take a look at what 'healthy masculinity' looks like in boys, investigate trans-binary health and identity, and more. Students can even learn about "sex toys" and get a free one for participating.

Linda Harvey is president of the Ohio-based group Mission: America. She acknowledges this is a new thing for OSU, but challenges the use of taxpayer money for it.

"Ohio State has a long tradition of many fine activities – but holding a 'Sex Week' is not one of them," she tells AFN. "Most of the people in Ohio would be outraged to see where public funding is going, to support this kind of high-risk and anti-family activity."

She says as is usually the case with evil, there's something ironic about this event. "The sexual anarchist movement in our country is all about death and destruction while pretending that they aren't," she explains, noting that they pretend "reproductive healthcare" is anything other than the killing of an unborn child.

"… Many of [the other activities] are health-compromising, high-risk and, in some cases, life-shortening," she adds. "[Yet] a highly-respected Big Ten university is introducing kids to this as if this is a positive thing."

Harvey used to work at OSU's Wexner Medical Center – so she understands the risks of such an event. As she points out, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are still a thing.

"To see that they're going down this road of advocating high-risk, health-compromising, and very immoral – and frankly, anti-Christian – practices, is really, really saddening to many of us," Harvey laments. "It's going to result in tragedy in some of these lives. But will Ohio State be around to pick up those pieces? I kind of doubt it."
