Pharma Pushes Sex Pills on Adolescents

If you were an adult male pervert looking to seduce an under-aged girl, wouldn’t you want to be able to easily purchase “morning after pills”?

Yesterday Fox News posted the headline: “Pediatricians: Prescribe morning-after pills in advance.”

“the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) on Monday called on the nation’s pediatricians to counsel all of their adolescent patients about emergency contraception and make advance prescriptions for it available to girls under 17. Because current federal policy bans over-the-counter sales of the pills to girls under 17, having a prescription on hand could help younger teens obtain emergency contraception more quickly than if they have to contact a physician only after they need it.”

The Fox story doesn’t point out that this is tantamount to calling doctors to cancel out the law on their own authority. If girls are prescribed pills in advance, then what are the odds that the use of the pills will be tracked? They won’t be. No one will be asked how often they needed the pills, and the pills will find their way into a grey market. Friends will share with friends and unsavory men will get some to share with their dates.

There is every reason to suspect AAP of simply being a pill pusher on this issue. All you have to do is search the internet for “American Academy of Pediatrics” and “follow the money” to see reason to question why this organization is should be given unquestioned authority. I have always taken recommended vaccines, so I’m not saying I completely buy into the following (I simply haven’t researched the issue yet), but it does give me pause about placing my faith in the group:

“The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is a trade association with 60,000 pediatrician members that publishes guidelines for giving vaccines to children. In recent years, the public has learned that the AAP has been taking lots of money from vaccine manufacturers and refusing to disclose to the media just how much money it gets from Big Pharma.In the early 1980’s, the AAP lobbied Congress to give pediatricians and drug companies liability protection from vaccine injury lawsuits while parents of DPT vaccine injured children worked hard to get vaccine safety and informed consent provisions in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986,which has already paid out more than 2 billion dollars in federal compensation to children and adults harmed by vaccines. Today, when a pediatrician continues to vaccinate a child after the child has experienced vaccine reactions that get worse after each round of shots, that pediatrician is not held liable in a civil court of law when the child ends up brain damaged or dead because of the pediatrician’s negligence.”

I’m not saying that every accusation against the AAP is true or that they have never done any good as an organization (I have no direct knowledge). What I am saying is that they have no claim to infallible authority.

The results of this policy are embedded in the Fox News story:

“that although teen pregnancies in the United States have declined since 1991, the rate is higher than in most other developed countries. The percent of 15- to 18-year-olds who report ever having intercourse – just over 40 percent, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – is, however, lower than in many developed countries. In other words, fewer of America’s teens are having sex but more are getting pregnant.”

So what will happen if we push more drugs on girls to make sex child-free? If we can guess that fear of pregnancy is a barrier to sex, then we can predict that teens will become more promiscuous. We will also see more sexually-transmitted diseases. Finally, we will have more abortions, not only because “morning after contraception” sometimes produces abortions, but because promiscuous girls relying on chemicals that sometimes fail are more likely to get pregnant than celibate girls.

Don’t miss the “political benefits” to this lifestyle. People who are unconnected in families make better pawns for the state. The AAP is basically calling for the dystopias of George Orwell’s 1984 or Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. A society structured by family and rules about reserving sex for marriage has basically been outlawed as “imposing religion.”
