Throwing in the towel

June 11, 2013

morning after pillIt’s official – the Obama administration has thrown in the towel on its half-hearted effort to keep age restrictions on the over-the-counter sale of so-called “emergency contraceptives.”  The unsurprising capitulation now paves the way for what the Food and Drug Administration promises will be swift approval for making the drug openly and readily available to girls of any age.

Welcome to the latest lowlight in this culture’s mad rush into the abyss.

Welcome to an America where pills that can kill a new life after fertilization may now be stocked next to chewable vitamins and superhero bandages.

Welcome to an America where we have so cheapened the value of human life that we make early abortion pills as available to 10 year-olds as a pack of gum.

Welcome to an America where we seem to not care what the potential long-term health consequences might be for girls who grow up using and abusing emergency contraceptives.

Welcome to an America where parents will have no knowledge that their children are buying and using an over-the-counter drug in false expectations that it makes sex  ”safe.”

Welcome to an America where one teen’s right to buy pills to cause an early abortion is unrestricted while another teen has his microphone cut off during a graduation speech for deviating from the government-approved script .

Welcome to an America that has lost its moral compass.

Welcome to an America where even the wildest dreams of social progressives are coming true.

America has found Pandora’s Box and has gleefully ripped off its lid.  That is to our shame.  Let’s just hope that we will one day remember where we placed that lid, just in case we find our way back to sanity.

    Not terribly different from the “pill,” which has been accepted for years. We’ve known for a long time that the pill also causes abortions.
