Who Didn't Know This Was Coming
Now that the FDA has approved the "Plan B" abortion pill for over the counter purchase for women 18 and over, the abortion lobby is in full swing to have it approved for girls of any age. Not that anyone didn't expect straw purchase by an adult to give to a child, but the abortion fans just can't abide any restrictions on their ability to kill off inconvenient complications to their pursuit of self gratification. What you and I would call children.
The maker of the morning after pill, along with women's groups and lawmakers, plans to press its success a step further, seeking to make the controversial abortion drug available without prescription to girls 17 and under...
... "The battleground now shifts to availability for women under 18, and that is likely to prove very contentious since it is tied to strongly held beliefs about abstinence education and parental rights," said Arthur Caplan, director of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania, according to MSNBC.
Those pesky parents always acting like they have some legitimate concern for their children when we should all defer to the wisdom of Planned parenthood.
Advocates of making the drug available to youths argue any restrictions might hinder efforts to curb the estimated 3 million unplanned pregnancies in the U.S. each year.
Abortion provider Planned Parenthood said it's "troubled by the scientifically baseless restriction imposed on teenagers."
"The U.S. has one of the highest rates of teen pregnancy in the Western world," said Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. "Anything that makes it harder for teenagers to avoid unintended pregnancy is bad medicine and bad public policy."
Scientifically baseless though it may be the fact remains that it is morally bankrupt to not have restrictions on minors for any activity that is potentially harmful. Morality however is the bain of Planned Parenthood who's source of income is abortion and aim is to shield people who are having sex from becoming parents.
The FDA was foolish to think they could do this without ending up here. The sad thing is there are girls who will be damaged by this and no one but their parents will be around to pick up the pieces after the fact..
