What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
Imagine Jill, a carefree college student who meets a guy at a bar. They have a good time, get drunk, and go back to her place. They have sex. But oops! Her partner didn’t use a condom. Looks like Plan A went out the window. But have no fear, “Plan B” is still available!
Yes, that’s right, Jill can now take a pill and subvert all potential consequences of her actions (minus the possibility of STDs, of course). And yes, its been named “Plan B”. Oh, the irony.
Being touted for use “when things don’t go as planned”, Plan B lets women rewind the clock up to 72 hours, without even clicking their heels. Jill can now continue on in her care–free life, not having to worry about pregnancy, a (up until now) natural consequence to her promiscuous actions.
Even more alarming is that Jill doesn’t have to go to her doctor any longer. She’ll now be able to purchase Plan B over the counter.
Jacob had something to say about this:
And now I, Jacob, spake many more things unto the people of Nephi, warning them against fornication and lasciviousness, and every kind of sin, telling them the awful consequences of them. (Jacob 3:12)
Jill needs to learn that her actions have consequences. She didn’t use protection. She forgot to take the pill. Whatever the case may be, she should square her shoulders and face the consequences, rather than swallowing a pill to make them disappear.
Also worthy of note is that these pills will be available to both men and women. They will now be the drug of choice among pedophiles and predators. From the Intellectual Conservative:
With the FDA’s approval of this high-voltage cocktail of hormones, any adult over the age of 18 will have free access to Plan B pills over the counter. That includes adult women and adult men. The decision does not differentiate between the sexes. Predatory males will obtain the pills and give them to minors. It’s open season on underage girls. This is remarkable considering there is strong evidence that Planned Parenthood (which will now become the “counter of choice,” in the words of their press release) protects pedophiles that bring girls to their abortion mills. All the abortion employees have to do is dispense the pills to the predators. The girls don’t even need to come to their clinics. It’s an easy, simple and safe solution for Planned Parenthood.
Important also is that young adults have more sex when it becomes easier and more convenient to do so. Plan B will cause young women (and minors who get the pills covertly) to be careless and promiscuous. Plan B does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Expect more STD’s in the future, especially among college-age kids. STD’s have reached alarming levels in England, where the drug is readily available. Pro-aborts say Plan B will dramatically lower the abortion rate. Not so. In European countries where the drug has been available over-the-counter, abortions have increased as have unplanned pregnancies.
Preventive measures are okay; I believe that “morning after” pills are morally wrong, because it facilitates the breakdown of cause and effect. You should reap what you sow. Period.
