Drugs Sex and Marriage

by James Jett

I am reviewing my notes from years pass and recall a show on TV discussing genetic testing. The questions were about kind, loving human beings donating hearts, lungs and other parts of the body for some one else to use and stay alive. With the kindness of others, many people will live. When the host asked the Geneticists how sure he was when he said “we have a match” once the test was complete, he answer, — as I recall, he said— ‘we are sure”.  When asked if he told the parents that could mean the father is not the biological father, he said “no, I do not want to get involved in a law suit”. Most of the time , he said, “I can see that the man is not the child’s father. Fifty percent of the Black men and thirty-five percent of the White men are not the biological father. Unless the labs have a better procedure, the paying customers will not get correct information to the question, is this my child?

Watching the TV show “The Doctors” as I chance to do some time twice weekly or more. Luckily I saw the show when the genetic testing kit, a tool or procedure that a person use to decide if he is the father of a child. As I understand it, a woman can give birth to a child and use this kit to prove that the man is the child’s father. Or better yet, a man can use the kit to show that some one else fathered the child. This gadget or kit is another example of the failed timing of the drug and instruments designed for human use and consumption. In that, it mimic the birth control pill, remember the birth control pill was use to solve the problem for those who could not wait until marriage to have sex, or wanted to delay the next pregnancy.

Couples using condoms to prevent pregnancy welcomed the “pill” because it seem to give more pleasure, closeness and overall satisfaction. We later learned that it –the pill— also exposed both partners to sexually  transmitted decease, even if only one partner was having an affair.  With the pill you could engage in sex without putting a condom on or taking anything off and unwanted pregnancy was no longer a concern.

What good is the “pill” now, if you or your partner is engaging in sex with people who— care less — about your well-being?. You could get aids or any other venereal decease, even if you used the birth control pill.  It would have been better if the rich, careless and unwise drug companies had spent time researching a cure for all venereal decease, then the pill would be a benefit and not a liability.
