The United State Food and Drug Administration have once again stood up for the rights of women to terminate their unwanted children. This decision happened after a judge stated that he did not believe it was right for girls under the age of 17 to have to have a prescription for the “morning after” pill. He also stated that he thought that whoever wanted to take the Plan B pill should be able to do so without a prescription. The Obama administration jumped on board the bandwagon today and stated that girls 15 and older should be able to get their hands on the pill without a prescription because it violated their rights. This is a travesty to the American justice system, and it takes away the rights of parents to raise their children the way that they see fit.
Since Roe vs. Wade, the nation has grown more and more supportive of the “right” of women to end the life of their children. It’s no coincidence that activist judges had to overturn the country’s ban on abortion, as most at the time did not support such a measure. Now, years down the road, this is another ruling that gives those who want to take away American citizens’ freedoms and the lives of unborn children more legitimacy than they need. Instead, they need to be told that terminating pregnancies means ending lives, and they should be a heck of lot more thoughtful before making the decision to end the life of an unborn human being.
That’s not what’s happening though. Obama’s administration has made it so that young girls can buy the “morning after” abortion pill with the ease it takes to buy chewing gum or T-shirts. Additionally, lowering the age from 17 years to 15 years for a girl to be eligible to purchase the pill without a prescription infringes on the rights of their parents. What if, for instance, a girl’s mother did not support abortion due to her religious beliefs? Under the new ruling, the beliefs of the mother would not matter as it would be up to the girl, who could be as young as fifteen, to decide whether or not she wants to terminate her pregnancy. It is a sick violation of parental rights, and it shows just how much of an abortion lover Obama and his administration are.
Some of you may think that I am being a bit too harsh. I don’t think so. While you may argue that the “morning after” pill does not constitute abortion, that is not the main issue that I have with this ruling. The fact is, parents should be able to tell their children what to do, and they should not have the federal government sending their kids mixed messages. Growing up, my parents instilled values and morals in me and my siblings, and this helped us become the people we are today. Unfortunately, the next generation will have the government telling them that their parents’ opinions don’t matter, and this could lead to a generation full of spoiled, bratty kids the likes of which the world has not seen.
So let’s petition conservatives and those who believe that parents should be able to educate their children the way they see fit. Let’s write letters to the FDA and Judge Edward Korman and let them know that violating the rights of U.S. citizens is not what they were put in office to do. They were given their positions to protect our rights not take them away, but they are doing exactly that. So let’s stand up peacefully for ourselves so that the next generation of Americans won’t have less rights than we have.
May God Bless America,
The Generation X Conservative
