The Morning After

Planned Parenthood says that the over the counter sales of the "Morning After Pill" "would sharply reduce the nearly one million abortions performed each year in the United States." (The Herald Times 8/25/06 A9)

(Here was supposed to appear a picture of a package of morning after pills, but I couldn't get it to work.)

They say that if teens could also get it without a prescription, then there would not be an increase in adolescent sexual activity, there would not be an increase in unprotected adolescent sexual activity; just a decrease in ABORTIONS.

Let's try to follow their logic...

You're a teen, and you like this girl. Your parents are preoccupied with life in the fast lane, or just timid about talking to you because you're so abrasive. They don't know that you like this girl or what you did last Friday night, or what your plans are tonight. (strike one)

They talked about it at school, like a million years ago, and it was totally random and boring, and hey, who do they think they are anyways? Besides, you got the idea, "(Do what you want, but) don't get...anything!" OK, so you inserted that first part, but they never said otherwise, at least you don't remember that part. (strike two)

So you go to the drug store, you know, just in case because you really, really like her. But those things are a little more than you're got in your pocket, and besides there's this really cute girl behind the counter, and you don't want to give her the wrong impression... Hey! There's that stuff you read about! That Morning After stuff. If you strike out, you're not out anything; and if it does happen, she can just stop by the 24 hour pharmacy on the way home, broh. (strike three)

Planned Parenthood, I just don't follow you.

(this senario, of course is all that is wrong, and doesn't talk about all that could be...)

That's a blatant lie! Maybe, only maybe, it would reduce the amount of surgical abortions performed by them. The TRUTH is there would just be more quiet killings while the babies were smaller in their mothers wombs. Maybe at the breakfast table while they tell their mom they had fun last night. Wow murder never got so easy! It makes me sick.

It also reminds me how sex education was supposed to inform kids about sex, but hey it wouldn't encourage them to do it. Ya right! anyone observing the trend can see that it didn't work out that way! Satan keeps telling lies and the world keeps perpetuating them. So sad.

May God bless you with a heart like His, so that no matter who you talk to there, they will hear what He would say to them. I'll pray for boldness for you.

Thank you, Sarah. That is exactly what I want.

Sarah,

You have insights that this world is blind to. Hold onto them and continue to walk in the light of God's Word.

Forgive me if I've misread you, but your tone seems harsh and angry. Please remember what the Holy Spirit has taught us:

Psalm 37:7 Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when men succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.

8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret—it leads only to evil.

9 For evil men will be cut off,
but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.

Commit your way to the Lord and walk with Him in this cause. Remember who it is that holds the whole world and the hearts of men in His mighty hand, dear Sarah.

In Him,
Rachel

Your right, rebuke taken! It was important for me to hear that, thanks Rachel. I'll meditate on that in my heart for a while. I've done that far too often.

Love in Christ,
Sarah

Dear Sarah, blessed of the Lord;

You have a fine and humble heart. This is a gift of God, to take my words as oil on your head and not refuse it.

May He continue to bless you and keep you, and make your feet firm,

Rachel
