Fruit of Secular liberalism: STD rates in the US hit record levels amid ‘resurgence’ of syphilis

The number of people in the US who were diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease in the last year rose to its highest ever level.

Around 2.5m cases of STDs were recorded in 2018, including nearly 1,300 cases of congenital syphilis in newborn children, according to the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Congenital syphilis occurs when a mother passes on the infection to their unborn child in the womb.

  1. With STD rates at an all time high why not raise awareness for STD registries
