Morning After Pill Ruling BS

Category: I'm Not that Dad

I was asked by HuffPostLive to make a video comment for a segment they were preparing about the Morning After PIll and an activist judge’s ruling. This is what I said. I believe EVERY word in this short rant. I believe it’s ABSURD that a judge can legislate. I believe that a child THAT YOUNG should NOT have access to any sort of prescription meds. Kids need to be 16 to drive, 18 to smoke or enlist, and 21 to drink, but it’s OKAY that they can get birth control – after the fact , the morning after pill- at ANY AGE? C’mon, even you lefties have to see the craziness of this? Are we becoming like a totalitarian regime where The State parents OUR kids? This is yet another case of Political Correctness gone MAD!

Note: The “BS” in the title is simply my initials…

    My take is a bit complicated.

    On one hand, I think that if the child is too foolish and too irresponsible to protect herself, she’s too foolish and irresponsible to raise the child. I think abortion is a terrible method of birth control; I think there are instances when it may be justifiable, including rape, incest and medical problems that place the mother’s life at risk.

    However, I also believe that the courts should uphold LIBERTY and that churches and responsible parents should uphold MORALS. (It’s not that the courts “legislate,” but rather they decide what is and isn’t legal.) That said, I don’t have a problem with an underage child having access to the pill; I DO have a problem with an underage child having access to it WITHOUT the parents being involved at all.
