New York City is dispensing the ‘morning after pill’ to girls as young as 14 at more than 50 public high schools, sometimes even before they have had sex. (But nothing to infer there!).
Sure, they can’t give the kids aspirin without their parents consent, but why would they need parental consent to hand out a hormonal drug cocktail that snuffs out potential life?
The conventional wisdom for this policy is that “kids nowadays simply aren’t going to abstain from sexual intercourse” or some version thereof. Many of the kids who are handed the pill are under 16. In most states, that’s the age for statutory rape. New York City’s schools already offer regular birth control pills and condoms, but apparently that’s not near enough. Need those emergency ‘abortion’ pills, too.
Dr. Cora Breuner, a Seattle physician and member of an American Academy of Pediatrics’ committee on teen health, has said emergency contraception is safe and effective “if you use it in a timely fashion. It provides relief or solace to a young woman or man who has made a mistake but doesn’t want to have to live with that mistake for the rest of their lives.”
One thing is clear. If this pill is used in a timely fashion, it is safe… to believe that it doesn’t provide relief or solace to the potential young women or men who didn’t make a mistake- just were the innocent result of one- and who don’t now have a “rest of their life” to live.
Remember what your school is teaching you, kids. You don’t have to deal with the consequences of your own actions!
And the cheapening of life continues unabated, as difficult as it is for some of us to conceive.
