On abortion pills for children
By Sylvia Thompson
May 7, 2013

Jehmu Greene is a black leftist who often speaks for the liberal position on women. She was on a Fox Cable News show recently with Dr. Manny Alvarez, another Fox contributor. The discussion centered around the recent move on the part of Federal Judge Edward Korman, for the Eastern District of New York, to force the sale of abortion pills to children, without adult oversight.

As a physician, who has an underage teenage child, Dr. Alvarez was adamant that the move was asinine at best and medically dangerous at worse. Ms. Greene's comeback was that some girls do not have concerned parents, like the doctor, to guide them. When they experience an unwanted pregnancy, quick-access abortion pills are a necessity. Never mind giving consideration to what could possibly have brought this nation to the point where children are routinely engaging in premature sex.

I will acknowledge that Ms. Greene is correct about the lack of caring parents. A lot of young people (many of them black), thanks to the ravages of liberalism, have no such care. Oftentimes it is because the parents themselves are not far removed from childhood and do not have a clue. I would wager that at least some of the pregnancies of pre-teen and early-teenage girls, especially in the black community, is the result of seduction and pressured sex, in addition to outright rapes. Girls without fathers in the home to afford them some protection are probably fair game in housing projects and inner-city residencies.

When young adolescent males run feral in the hallways and streets, much harm can come to girls. These tawdry facts are well-documented today in America's post-moral culture, and many people with lots of letters after their names have chronicled the travesty.

What I want to address here, however, is Ms. Greene's seemingly compassionate concern for the young girls who do not have caring parents. Her assumption is that if a child does not have caring parents, progressives have the right (and I suppose, duty) to step in to make things "right" as they see fit. That a judge, as representative of the progressive Left, can actually claim that authority is stunningly hubristic. These kinds of assumptions on the part of the Left are what make it patently clear that there is no way to live with these people.

That their solutions are anathema to a vast swath of Americans is of no concern to them. Families (and there still are many) of husbands and wives who have proper oversight of their children and who can see the dangers of such an obnoxious ruling from a morally flawed man are of no consequence to the Left.

If there were some way for the harm that progressive thinking wrecks on a culture to affect only the progressives in the culture, perhaps we would have a solution to this standoff. That, however, is not logically possible. The options are then, to remove these people from power through the electoral process, which is becoming increasingly difficult owing to voter fraud and other political criminality, or to employ other means. I have ideas for other means that are not suitable for this forum. I sincerely hope, however, that there are creative conservative minds out there prepared to lead with other ideas, more peaceful and constructive than my own.
