Nullify Federal Ruling on Morning After Pill

In statutory rape, overt force or threat need not be present. The laws presume coercion, because a minor or mentally challenged adult is legally incapable of giving consent to the act.

Most states set the age of consent for cases involving statutory rape at age 16, so making it lawful for 15 year old teenage girls to purchase the morning after pill without parental approval comes into conflict with most state laws as it applies to the age of consent. The Obama administration's decision to allow 15 year old teenage girls to buy the morning after pill is aiding and abetting statutory rape.

Moreover, in most states parents are legally responsible for their children up to age 18, but this legal mandate clearly works at cross purposes with 15 year old teenage girls being empowered by the federal government to make their own decisions about their sexual activity.

This is a parental rights and states rights issue and states that disagree with this ruling should nullify it!

This is why Christianity is so feared by statists

If a man is drowning in a lake that says no swimming, the government says you can't swim to save him and will arrest you for doing so. Gods law would have you disobey the no swimming law to rescue someone.

God says protecting yourself and others comes first, and God's law of safety trumps even mans 'supreme' law.

I don't care what the FDA or government said about my 15yo. If I tell her no, its no. If government wants to challenge that, then they are altering my religious duties and attacking my religion itself. They are no longer in my best interest and must not be obeyed.

Welcome to Christianity folks, the most hated religion specifically because 'they' know, we are above the law.

What is the age limit for buying condoms?


Bump and a vote up! The Judge is right! If a parent has to be..

notified if a store pierces her ears, then the birth control pills should not be given without parental notification, either. As parents who are likely providing her every need, they have the rights to both know what is going on, and to be the ones to explain both their position on the issue and the risks involved in taking these type of drugs.

cant get a tattoo as a minor but you can take alien chemicals to distort your reproductive system ultimately mitigating one thing: Population growth.

The FDA, WHO, Codex, and all of the ilk are undoubtedly THE MOST brainwashed agencies of the NWO.. it takes a real leap of artificial faith to assume such things about ones own humanity yet still get up at 7am and show up for work everyday.

Sebelius is surely a responsible sociopath.

Thank you, Judge!

He understands that selling this to a minor without parental consent or knowledge is govt stripping parental rights yet so many in emalvini's thread just don't get that.

I understand

What you are saying, but many people (myself included) see this more like allowing them to buy condoms which prevent pregnancy rather than allowing them to have an abortion after the fact... this very same argument (pleasure without responsibility) could apply to any form of birth control.

One thing that bothers me about the people who are complaining about this is that in one breath they will fuss about the government overstepping it's bounds and being too big, but in the next breath they complain that they should create more legislation based on morals. Those two statements are completely contradictory. I think it is my responsibility to make sure my daughter doesn't buy (or need to buy) this pill... that's why I don't see it as "stripping away my parental rights."

little bit confused by what you said

You, as a parent, are very watchful of your daughter and set certain parameters of behavior. The government, another form of authority figure, seems determined to undermine those parameters by allowing a free-for-all where sexual activity is concerned - a 15yo is still a minor and if she does get pregnant it's statutory rape that can/should get a conviction for the offender. That level of protection has now been removed because the govt has decided statutory rape is no longer a concern and parents have no right to know what a child does behind the parents' back. That's how I see it. It's how a child pits one parent against another in divorce situtations. If Mom says no, Dad may say yes and not ask what Mom had said. Very slippery slope. From my experience, kids will try to get away with whatever they can. At that age they are really testing the boundaries and peer pressure is huge. If Big Guv says it's ok, why listen to old-fashioned mommy who wants me to miss out on all the fun?

So if

The government ends the drug war is that allowing a free for all of drug use for minors against their parents wishes, too?

Do you look at a 15yo's ability to buy condoms this same way? If not, why not?

And you totally lost me with the statutory rape should be prosecuted comment... are we talking about two consensually sexually active teenagers of approximately the same age here? I have 4 daughters, my oldest is 13, and I can not imagine pressing charges against a boy she was in a relationship with and had consensual sex with unless there was more to it than that. Teenagers have been having sex against their parents wishes for centuries ... if every parent pressed charges for statutory rape most males would be considered sex offenders. I wouldn't be happy, but I'm not going to ruin a kids entire life by making him a sex offender unless it is rape in the true sense of the word.

I'm not saying that this should be sold to young girls and I would have no problem with it having an 18 year age limit... I believe that would be more appropriate, I just don't really get all the fuss from libertarians especially. I think this is just being used to divide and distract us from something else. I also think it's possible that the judge being Catholic may have something to do with his position on this issue.
