Let's Talk About this Morning After Pill

Okay, Sisters, how about all the brouhaha over the Morning After Pill (Plan B) being written into law and available to  teens under the age of 17?  Unless you've been under a rock for a few months, you've probably heard the debate.  Should this pill be available for teens 17 years old or should any "child" even as young as 15 years old have access without parental approval.  Should it be available OTC (over the counter) marketed beside the various condoms, spermicides, etc. or only through the pharmacy with proof of identification? 

My heart is saddened and deeply sorrowful that our nation has come to this.  Is morality completely off the discussion table in America?  Forget about the advocates who are preaching that every woman has a right to decide what to do with her body, these are children who haven't even learned how to keep their rooms clean!!!   I mean are they really able to handle this type of responsibility? We all know how fierce the fight is, against a culture that continues to belittle our Lord and steals the innocence of our children, but do we dare give up? I say NEVER!!

 I agree it's a "rights" issue-- I'm standing up for  the rights of our existing children and those of the many unborn  who will never realize their destiny.  Yes, it is a child, a human being, designed with divine purpose according to Psalms 139:13-16 " For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,  your eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Let's pray and come up with some ways we can start reclaiming our rights as Christian parents.  Starting my list of things to do to combat the Enemy is:

1.PRAY WITHOUT CEASING....2 Thessalonians 5:17

  1. Sis. Betts I am so proud and inspired by you. I'm glad that I have met you through my journey of learning with God. Now on to the regular comment. I don't believe any minor should have the option of the Plan B pill let alone without parental consent. It takes away from the parent being a parent and I believe it promotes irresponsibility as oppose to promoting abstinence. It can also encourage many things that society as a whole is lacking; honesty, integrity, responsibility, being humble, being humane (there could be a little being budding), etc. It makes it difficult trying to bring your child/ren up the right way when laws such as this are passed.
