A judge has ordered that the contraceptive drug “Plan B” be made available to minors over the counter. This is disturbing indeed. Parents are upset with the decision citing that the courts are infringing on parental rights and are sending the wrong message to children. Moreover, contraception is known to have side-effects that can harm a woman and even kill her. Some side effects include, bleeding, changes in menstrual cycle, bloodclot, headaches, changes in hormonal system, vomiting, breast cancer, liver tumors and endometrial cancer.
Is this what we want our kids ingesting, especially during a time where their bodies are going through hormonal changes?
This judge obviously did not think the decision through. Moreover, this sends the message to minors that they can be promiscuous without repercussions. This is a result of judicial activism. Parents must speak out against this ruling and demand it be knocked down. This will bring serious harm to our kids and society as a whole.
Ironically, schools cannot give aspirin to children with headaches, but now Plan B which does more harm is free to distribute to them.
