Tax-Funded Sterilizations for Teenagers (No Parental Consent Required?)
PJ Media ^ | August 15, 2012 | La Shawn Barber

Posted on 08/16/2012 5:31:16 AM PDT by SumProVita

In Oregon, a 15-year-old cannot obtain a driver's license or legally drink alcohol, but she can ask a doctor to make her infertile.

...snip...

A story on CNSNews goes into detail about an Obamacare regulation that took effect on August 1 that requires health care plans in the U.S. to provide taxpayer-funded (or free, in liberal terminology) contraceptive methods that include sterilization “for women with reproductive capacity.”

Because the recommendation doesn’t specify age, it theoretically could apply to any menstruating girl. CNSNews learned that Oregon allows a minor to consent to sterilization. In that state, a 15-year-old girl can give her “informed consent” to allowing a doctor to render her permanently barren. Whether her parents approve or not has no bearing on her choice.

This is horrendous! It's an abuse of parental rights and has the potential to inflict untold damage on a young woman.

Mr. Obama...why are you fighting this war on women?

My theory is that he’s a misogynistic homosexual who has had negative and oppositional relationships with women throughout his whole miserable life ... but it’s just a theory.

I kinda doubt there are many legitimate doctors out there that would sterilize a teenage girl for no medical reason.

I’ve heard of childless adults that wanted sterilization that had to doctor shop and go through major consultations beforehand. Most doctors don’t want to do permanent harm for a temporary whim.

If this is a real problem, I’d bet it is a really rare one.

I generally agree with you. However, even ONE young woman is one too many to be scarred for life.

Well...those who are informed know that Margaret Sanger is the beloved icon of Planned “Parenthood.”

Obama loves Planned “Parenthood” and does not seem to care that Ms. Sanger had such a low opinion of Blacks.

Its a bad law ... but this part is probably more of a stupid error than an actual policy position.

They wanted to get that damn contraceptive mandate on-the-books so fast that they didn’t even bother to carefully word the stupid thing to avoid the crap that even they think is ridiculous (like this part, I would guess). I don’t need another reason to dislike this dipstick and every law he screws with.

I get the feeling the Regime is making these changes as fast as it can because it doesn’t expect to be in power much longer.

While I agree, there is a difference between "licensed" and "legitimate." You can be the former without being the latter. And when the government is funding it? Yeah, someone will set up shop. Someone will do it just because they can. And it won't take "many" to do grave harm.

I know this is just editing because you were excerpting but I cringed when I read the word “snip” following that sentence.

Undoubtedly he dislikes women, otherwise it would be free sterilization for young men, which make much more sense if the ultimate aim is to reduce the number of people born. After all one man can impregnate many women in a nine month period while a woman can only have one child (most of the time). I must demand equal rights for young men on this one!

Golly, between Planned Parenthood, free condoms, free sterilization we'll soon be like China. Could it be that's what this current administration wants?

Yeah, there are “doctors” that’ll do anything for a buck. There are probably a handful without conscience that would be willing to sterilize young girls with a dirty pocketknife out of the back of a van in a convenience store parking lot.

But, I still don’t think it’d be much of a problem, if any. How lucrative a business can permanently sterlizing teenagers possibly be?

There is clearly a hole in the law, and it demonstrates just how hastily and sloppily this crap was thrown together ... but the market for parentless barely-post-pubescent permanent sterilization is just non-existent. I can’t get too worked up about a stupid loophole that will ultimately have no victims.

There are better reasons that this law should be gutted.

It goes a long way in explaining why he is savagely plunging the knife into America (and Lady Liberty in particular), until she is nothing but a bloody heap.

I wouldn't be surprised if his mother and grandmother fed him lies (about a Kenyan baby daddy), making his entire identity nothing more than a pile of ashes when he found out.

And while I think Barry has the looks and mannerisms of Malcolm X, who knows what the DNA knows. What if the perv FMD turned out to be his real "Pops", esp. if FMD and abused him sexually, and these same women turned a blind eye?

Something about his psyche is whacked alright. He's taking it out on America.

Well, it seems to me that the Democrat leaders of today ARE rather stupid. However, when one looks at the groups who ACTUALLY WROTE the law, I think it may have very well been a policy position.

You’re gravely mistaken if you attribute this particular outcome to ‘error’. Why do we keep giving liberals cover?

Imagine they could sterilize your daughter without parental consultation from their school. Why wouldn’t liberals jump at this chance?

Sure, Zero's proxies have been praising China all along.

He’s a real mess, one way or the other. Maybe he doesn’t even know who his father was.

I think he's a self-loathing misogynistic faggot ...

He cringes like a little girl (with apologies to actual little girls), and hates himself for it.

What is telling is that this new Obamacare rule to provide “free” sterilizations is for women only.

This is the misogynist population control plan that’s been in the works for more than 40 years ... pushed by Kissinger and many others. It’s still the same plan. At the moment it’s voluntary but that is not the end game.

This may be available in CA under a law passed in the past year or two; of not might be soon enough.

It was AB499 from Toni Atkins. Anyone 13 and older could themselves consent on sexual-activity related "health treatment" including things like STD vaccinations.
