Teen Sex News: Federal Judge Orders ‘Morning After’ Pills for Underage Girls

It is illegal to have sex with minors, but because perverts can’t help themselves, the federal government will now be their accomplice in getting rid of the evidence:

A federal judge ruled Friday that the government must make the most common morning-after pill available over the counter for all ages, instead of requiring a prescription for girls 16 and younger. . . .
Edward R. Korman of Federal District Court, ruled that the government’s refusal to lift restrictions on access to the pill was “arbitrary, capricious, and unreasonable.”
Judge Korman ordered the F.D.A. to lift any age and sale restrictions on the pill, Plan B One-Step, and its generic versions, within 30 days.
“More than 12 years have passed since the citizen petition was filed and 8 years since this lawsuit commenced,” the judge wrote. “The F.D.A. has engaged in intolerable delays in processing the petition. Indeed, it could accurately be described as an administrative agency filibuster.”

Reuters quotes Nancy Northup, president of the abortion-lobby group, Center for Reproductive Rights: “Women all over the country will no longer face arbitrary delays and barriers just to get emergency contraception.” And by “women all over the country,” of course, she meant jailbait girls who don’t want their Moms to find out they’re screwing around.

In 2011, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius explained why the Obama administration did not approve non-prescription sales of Plan B to teenagers:

“The average age of the onset of menstruation for girls in the United States is 12.4 years. However, about ten percent of girls are physically capable of bearing children by 11.1 years of age. It is common knowledge that there are significant cognitive and behavioral differences between older adolescent girls and the youngest girls of reproductive age. If the application were approved, the product would be available, without prescription, for all girls of reproductive age.
“Because I do not believe enough data were presented to support the application to make Plan B One-Step available over the counter for all girls of reproductive age.”

What Sebelius did not say — but which everyone who has studied the matter knows — is that providing this drug to minors without parental permission would abet the criminal exploitation of girls. It’s the same issue with abortion for minors: In many cases, teenagers who become pregnant are in relationships with adult men; a trip to the abortion clinic is a way to eliminate the DNA-testable evidence of such crimes.

Steven Ertelt at reports:

Jeanne Monahan, Director of Family Research Council’s Center for Human Dignity, told LifeNews after the [2011] decision: “A decision to make Plan B available for girls under the age of 17 without a prescription would not have been in the interest of young women’s health. Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was right to reject the FDA recommendation to make this potent drug available over the counter to young girls. In her own words, the research submitted to the FDA did not include data for all ages for which the drug would be used.”
“Additionally, young people have approximately half of the sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) nationwide, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The availability of Plan B over-the-counter for all ages would have bypassed necessary routine medical care for sexually active girls. And a study released in 2010 revealed that adolescent use of Plan B was correlated with an increase in unplanned pregnancies and a high STD rate,” she said.
“There is also the issue of sexual abuse and exploitation. The average age of a girl who is sexually trafficked in the U.S. is 13 to 14. There is a real danger that Plan B could be given to young women, especially sexually abused minors, under coercion or without their consent. Interaction with medical professionals is a major screening and defense mechanism for victims of sexual abuse,” she continued.

Obviously, the “pro-sex feminists” are all in favor of providing abortion-inducing drugs to middle-school girls: “Whoo hooo! Now this just makes common sense . . . . I think this deserves a 30-second dance party” — and that’s a direct quote, you misogynistic patriarchal anti-sex theocrats.

The Left views anything that undermines traditional morality as a good thing, even if the result is increased misery. Teenage sex? Good. Teenage abortion? Better. And nothing is more important to the Left than destroying marriage:

More American couples are now living together — and having children — without marriage, and most cohabiting couples break up without marrying, a new federal study finds.
Fifty-five percent of women have been in an unmarried cohabitation relationship with a man by the time they are 25 years old, according to “First Premarital Cohabitation in the United States: 2006–2010 National Survey of Family Growth” (click here to see the PDF document). The study by researchers Casey E. Copen, Kimberly Daniels and William D. Mosher was published Thursday by the National Center for Health Statistics.
“Instead of marriage, people are moving into cohabitation as a first union,” Copen told USA Today. “It’s kind of a ubiquitous phenomenon now.” . . .
The study found that cohabitation was particularly common among women with less education, and among Hispanics. For women without a high-school diploma, 76 percent had cohabited by age 25, compared to 36 percent of women with a college degree.

Also, from the study, this interesting fact: “By age 18, 9% of women aged 15–44 in 2006–2010 had ever cohabited.” In other words, nearly one out of every 10 underaged girls in America is now shacking up.

And the liberals call this Progress.

UPDATE: As to where this kind of Progress is leading, Rusty Shackleford was shocked to discover that the age of consent in Mexico is 12: “Can that be true? It just seems so hard to believe.”

You can look it up for yourself.

    Yes, it’s much safer physically and psychologically for a 11-year-old girl to go through pregnancy and childbirth. Spare us your crocodile tears on behalf of middle-school girls, McCain — your description of pregnant pre-teens as “jailbait who don’t want their Moms to find out they’ve been screwing around” at least has the virtue of being your honest, genuine opinion of little girls.

    Nanny Bloomberg likes to interfere in the lives of nubile teenage girls and he has the judges to back him up!

    Funny that you would say that. I guess you can read his mindand see his heart, because he said nothing of the sort. The quote, however, does have the virtue of being a true picture of the situation. But, that’s your problem and the truth is what torques you so hard.
    Being a loony moonbat really does make life rough when it coems to the truth.

    Don’t be an idiot Kathy. It is the presumption that all parents cannot be trusted to participate in decision making that would result with an under-aged daughter who is pregnant, but some self appointed guardians at Planned Parenthood or out of some New York City or State agency can do that. It is the presumption that the State knows better and that the parents will not consider the opinions or views of the minor in all of this.

    And it is rare for 11 year olds to get pregnant.

    Latest Press Release From Ministry Of Informations America:

    Not to worry! Comrade Barack al-Husseini Vissarionovich Obama is working on liquid dosage with rohypnol and GHB added. This new drug, called JTIB (ignore ugly rumor that “JTI” means “Just Take It,”) will be provided in weekly ration packet for men. Now women can have great night of the sex with whoever decides they need it. BONUS: they forget
    all about it by morning!

    What a great country!

    Uncle Barack is working double-overtime (which means cutting out one banquet—which he must endure as First Among Equals) to assure women everywhere that, if their rapist du jour forgoes convenience of state supplied JTIB, then state will “eliminate” results, if necessary. No charge!

    Sure. Because obviously the solution for a raped 11-year old is an over-the-counter preparation, and not medical treatment.

    It is unfortunate that the judge will not be subject to class-action suits when the young ladies using this medication start dying of cancers, or losing their ability to procreate. But hey – when did anyone care about the human race anyway?

    It is also likely that pedophiles conducting “relationships” with underage girls would force or coerce them to take these to destroy the evidence, as a baby’s DNA can identify a child rapist.

    But the reasons this is bad policy aren’t even the first issue here. The problem is that judges should not be deciding policy questions at all.

    If an 11 year old girl is pregnant, she has been raped, PERIOD. In every state in the union. This isn’t your sharia law.

    And when a serious felony has been committed against a child, there is created an overriding societal interest. Just like we don’t overlook “honor killings” even if the family approves.
