The Future of Maine's Middle Schoolers

We all know that Portland, ME.'s middle schools will now prescribe "the Pill" for little girls who ask for it--and that parents are not allowed to discuss that.

But will the little girls benefit from this?

Nope. In fact, the little girls will (or should) have a cause for lawsuit:

'In 2006, the Guttmacher Institute (research arm of Planned Parenthood) rated the states on the effectiveness of their state-funded birth control distribution programs. States such as New York and California were rated excellent while Nebraska was rated poor. Which of these states do you think have high abortion rates? Remember, Planned Parenthood claims that better access to birth control will reduce abortions. Well, New York and California are among the states with the highest abortion rates while Nebraska has low abortion rates. Thus, Planned Parenthood's own statistics demonstrate the failure to achieve their claimed results.

'In 2005, the Guttmacher Institute, in a study on unplanned pregnancies, noted that 53 percent of women who have unintended pregnancies used a contraceptive method during the month they got pregnant. Of those unplanned pregnancies, 47 percent end in abortion, 40 percent are carried to full term, and 13 percent end in miscarriage. Whether this is due to usage failure or method failure, it shows that artificial contraception is largely ineffective in preventing unplanned pregnancy and abortion.

What a promising future those young girls have!!

Planned Parenthood would blame the low abortion rate on the scarcity of abortion providers in the state. There's always an excuse to explain why the statistics don't bear up their promises.

What women never challenge is that men usually support contraception and abortion NOT because it gives a woman choice, but instead, keeps them sexually available. It's all about appetite.
