Our Great Country where Schools Can Give 11-Year-Old Girls IUDs without Parental Notification

The Daily Mail is reporting that thirteen schools in Washington State are distributing IUDs to girls as young as eleven.

Here’s a story to help you celebrate your freedoms and your right to self-government this Independence Day: The Daily Mail reports, “Seattle high school sparks outrage over policy which allows it to give IUD contraceptives to girls as young as ELEVEN – without seeking permission from parents.”

A public school in Washington State is offering taxpayer-funded intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs) to female students as young as 11 – without seeking permission from their parents.

Chief Sealth High School, in Seattle, has sparked public outrage after implementing a state-wide health policy, which allows middle and high schools to administer birth control to girls in the sixth grade and up without informing their guardians.

The high school is in fact one of 13 public schools in the area who have implemented the same controversial policy in an attempt to encourage young girls to be more proactive about contraception.

Teaching girls to take free taxpayer-funded gifts from state bureaucrats, while hiding what they are doing from their parents, is not teaching them to be “proactive” at all! It is teaching them to be passive sheep.

At least 12 others are following the state law, which states that minors of any age studying at middle and high school can obtain birth control services without a parent’s consent.

Additionally, the schools are offering girls the chance to get a free IUD, a form of long-lasting birth control which is inserted into the uterus, and other long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC’s) at clinics located elsewhere, if the school itself is unable to offer the service. 

IUDs are thought to be 98 per cent effective against pregnancy – however they do not offer any protection against sexually-transmitted infections. 

 They also only work by aborting the embryo. They don’t actually prevent conception.

They also can produce some horrific health problems, like a perforated uterus. These things are rare, but there are reasons why parental consent is normally required for this invasive procedure.

But despite the additional health risks, Seattle school health educator Katie Acker, who works at two high school clinics in the area, believes that the state’s controversial policy on contraception has had a hugely positive impact.

She told Grist that teens are able to schedule their IUD insertions, get a Depo-Provera shot, or have Nexplanon implanted right in the middle of the school day – which means they are more likely to be proactive about contraception, and ensure that it is being administered by a trained health professional.

‘Because we’re at the school, which is so wonderful, we have access to the students, and they have access to us, pretty much any time,’ she explained. 

That says it all. Basically, tax-feeding school bureaucrats are the real family to our children. They spend most of their waking hours under their influence.
