There’s a news story circulating that the Obama Administration has again rejected Indiana’s attempts to defund Planned Parenthood.  The text of a very forceful letter sent from the administration to the State of Indiana can be found here

The essence of  the letter is that Medicare and Medicaid funds going to a State means the State must provide medical services, and to the Obama Administration providing medical services means providing for abortions, period:

(page 18) “….In review, § 1902(a)(23) requires that state plans for medical assistance must: ‘[P]rovide that (A) any individual eligible for medical assistance (including drugs) may obtain such assistance from any institution, agency, community pharmacy, or person, qualified to perform the service or services required…'”  (page 20)”….the proposed SPA violates the plain text of § 1902(a)(23) because it restricts individuals from obtaining covered family planning services from entities that are fit to provide and deliver such services….”  (Letter from Health and Human Services Office of Attorney Advisor to the Indiana Attorney General, dated July 5, 2012; emphasized text is from the letter)

This line of thinking is not new for the Obama Administration.  Buried in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is legislation requiring private insurers of employees to pay for abortions in the form of abortifacients.  There are no ways to opt out and no exemptions for conscience or religious faith.  In order to employ someone or insure someone in the U.S., you are now being compelled to be complicit with abortion.  And this is part of a growing trend where in at least one case a military physician has been forced to refer patients for abortion against his personal convictions.

There is no moral difference between the Obama Administration forcing doctors and insurers to provide for abortions against their consciences and China forcing individual women to have abortions.  In both cases we are dealing with compulsory abortion.  In both cases the state is dictating and the individual must comply or face consequences that could include losing their profession, their way of life or even their freedom.  The United States has been lowered to having the same moral stance on abortion as the nation of China.

And this is the sad legacy of a President who in effect has introduced compulsory abortion to the U.S.

Planned Parenthood is now being given direct access to set up shop in a public high school in Los Angeles.  Planned Parenthood is notorious for providing abortion advice and procedures to minors without their parent’s knowledge or consent.  And many educators believe that for the time children are on public school grounds, they – the public schools – own those kids, not the parents.   They believe they have a legal and moral obligation to raise the kids, instill values, transmit a world view and take complete care of them.
 
Regardless of what public school officials or liberal organizations believe, parents still have sovereignty over children.  A de-facto pro-abortion organization that purposely undermines parental rights being given privy to the inside of a public school is, I think, a bad idea.   It’s also a perfect example of the problem with national government education.  You can’t educate a child apart from a respect towards religion, and whether the world view is secular, humanist or socialist it is still as religious as any church doctrine.   It still teaches attitudes towards God, towards family, towards personal morality, towards parents, and towards the value of each innocent human individual’s life.  And that’s a religious proposition.

I saw a news story today about a Principal who is planning to distribute condoms to his students following a High School prom. In my mind, what the Principal plans on doing is every bit as inexcusable as supporting child pornography.  Seriously, stop and think about it for a moment.  Promoting sex between children should be considered every bit as bad as – in fact should be considered worse than – promoting child pornography.

This brings up a good point. In our politically correct society, distributing prophylactics to minors is considered enlightened and compassionate. After all, we’re told, they’re just going to have sex anyway. Well, depending on how they’ve been raised they may or may not become sexually active at a young age. But actively encouraging children to have sex is insanity. They are too young to grasp the ramifications and consequences of sexual activity. Date rape, depression, suicide, AIDs, cervical cancer… the price of offering condoms to children in a school is much higher than mere exploitation. It causes them to exploit each other. And this makes it the ultimate child exploitation.
