A Morning After Pill I Told You So

by Wesley J. Smith

Back in April, I predicted that the Obama Administration would happily concede to a trial judge’s dictat that requires the (sometimes) abortifacient pill be available to girls. Here’s what I wrote at the time:

In this case, the taken-for-granted values being furthered are that minors should have sex whenever and as much as they want, that parents should not be able to impose their own sexual morality on their children, and that the job of society is to keep “consequences” of having sex at bay for sexually active children through open access to contraception, abortifacients, and abortion–without notice or consent of parents if that is what the kids want. 

By the way, I think HHS Secretary Sebelius and Obama share these values. Thus, I predict either no appeal or a weak attempt aimed at losing the case. 

And that is precisely what happened. From The Guardian story:

The Obama administration will stop trying to limit sales of emergency contraception pills, making the morning-after pill available to women of all ages without a prescription. The US justice department said in a letter on Monday that it planned to comply with a court’s ruling to allow unrestricted sales of Plan B One-Step and that it would withdraw its appeal on the matter.

“Women of all ages!” Sickening. This is the fact: The Left thinks they, not parents, have the right to raise society’s children. And, for reasons I can’t understand, they seem to want boys and girls having sex with each other.
