More from the what-do-we-do-about-teenagers file:
“A CONTROVERSIAL program that allows girls as young as 13 to get the contraceptive pill without parental consent was launched in the UK today.
The pilot scheme on the Isle of Wight – an island county five kilometres off the southern England coast – will allow girls who ask for the morning-after pill to also get a month’s supply of the contraceptive pill.
So, young women who are by definition sexually active (since they’ve asked for the morning-after pill) are to have the option of taking proper, much-less damaging medication in order to avoid an unwanted pregnancy for which they’re not ready.
Naturally that has sparked outrage:
Parish priest Father Anthony Glaysher described the program as “depraved,” adding it would encourage promiscuity.
No, it’ll encourage sexually-active young people to get the necessary help.
Some girls do start menstruating at 13. They can become pregnant from that point on, and some do. What principle is achieved by denying them the options that other women have to avoid conceiving? What is the point of making them more likely to have babies at a time when they’re unprepared and unwilling to take care of them?
Obviously these church groups are determined to see more abortions, and ruined young lives. Young people having sex deserve to be PUNISHED! God said so!
