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!
