Really. A doctor said that. An obstetrician, in a
presentation entitled The
Neuroendocrine and Biochemical Basics of Human Sexuality: The Results
of Non-Marital Sexual Activity. [Note: the link

The author, Eric J. Keroack, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., gave the presentation on
June 27, 2003, for the National Abstinence Clearinghouse 2003
He’s in the news, as described by UPI:
…the Bush Administration came under fire for
appointing Eric Keroack to head the federal Office of Population
Affairs, which oversees the government’s reproductive health efforts
and has a budget of $283 million. Keroack, an obstetrician and
gynecologist, was previously medical director of a Boston group that
opposes premarital sex, abortion and contraception.
Bush has called the appointment a matter of “principles” and stressed
Keroack’s experience dealing with women and girls in crisis, but
opponents of the appointment say it is putting ideology before science
— and women’s health…
Opponents of abstinence-only programs often point out the lack of
scientific justification for the programs. Keroack counters
by spouting nonsense that sounds scientific.
But germ warfare? That’s just plain idiotic.
