Good morning to and my all of you here. Before I start, I would like to apologize if the things that I say today may offend you but in order to make my goals ethically sound, I have to be direct and clear.

(1) Sex has always been a sensitive issue in this country. Religions like Islamic and Christian forbids premarital sex. Both religions promote abstinence in their teachings.

(2) If we think rationally, we will find that abstinence is the only sure way to prevent diseases assoc wit sex. I stand here today with a chance to persuade all of u to practice either abstinence or safe sex as a way to prevent STDs .(3)

(11) Although it may not prevent a pregnancy, having sex within a committed, monogamous, long-term relationship with someone who has tested free of any STDs is also generally considered to be safe sex.
