Plan B will soon be available over the counter for women and girls of all ages. Woohoo!
This is fucking sick and disturbing. Girls of ALL AGES.
You idiots don’t think anything out do you? Makes me wonder if you really do think with your vaginas instead of your brains.
So lets throw in a hypothetical situation that easily relates to children today. A 12 year old arrives home after having sex with her boyfriend, steals her parents money (or sold drugs for money), walks down to the corner store and buys birth control.
You people find nothing wrong with that since a 12 year old who has access to BC is better than a pregnant 12 year old. My problem is the 12 year old engaged in an adult act. Children who have sex are more likely to become prostitutes, drug addicts, have little to no morals, and little to none self esteem. Not to mention its an epic parental failure.
And since there’s no age restriction, a 10 year old could do the same thing as the 12 year old. Hell, I can drop the age even fucking lower.
What you people are doing is supporting and promoting CHILD SEX, not to mention making it even easier for child rapists to hide their crimes and all in the name of the almighty vagina aka as women’s health.
You are all seriously a bunch of fucked up sick sons of bitches.
Alright, let’s get this straight! We’re going to sidetrack the gross misogyny of your statement about thinking with our vaginas - because really, that’s not relevant to this argument.
To start with the factual - actually, you couldn’t lower the age below ten, because menstruation typically begins between ages 10-15. Before that, guess what, you can’t get pregnant! Well, not you. I’m assuming that all the disgusting sexism you’re displaying in this little post alone means you are not a woman, and will never have to deal with this issue in direct relation to yourself. Good for you! You don’t have to worry about lots of old men who will never have to deal with unwanted pregnancy telling you what to do with your body and sexuality.
Anyway, the more pressing issue here is that you claim providing birth control for women and girls of all ages means encouraging young children to have sex. Your claim that being sexually active leads to moral degeneration is ridiculous and makes no sense - children who have sex have sex. Besides that, it was once common practice to marry girls off at twelve or thirteen, in the hopes of their becoming pregnant as soon as they were physically able. So the whole idea of twelve-year-old sexuality being “immoral” is a social construct anyway. I’m not saying it’s good or bad for children to have sex - just that if they want to, they will, whether or not Plan B is available. These girls need to have the opportunity to prevent unwanted pregnancies just as much, if not more, than women and girls of any other age!
Let’s talk about rape. Unfortunately, 15% of sexual assault and rape victims are under age 12. Many of these children know their attackers. That’s a lot of children having forcible sex - and you’re worried about the rapist being able to “hide their crimes”? So you think twelve-year-olds shouldn’t be having sex under any circumstances - but if they do, and if they get pregnant, they should be forced to carry to term as EVIDENCE for their rapists’ crimes?? I don’t even know where to start - you clearly don’t care about these girls as human beings in the least, or you would never call for the twelve- or ten-year-olds you say are being morally corrupted by sex to have children by their rapists merely as proof of the crime that has been committed against them. Evidently, their word is not enough.
Birth control does not encourage sex, or rape. It is not a method used by rapists to “cover their tracks.” Birth control is for women, giving them control over their own bodies and reproduction. It is absolutely necessary as an option for women and girls of all ages. Sex is not inherently corrupting, but it can be used as a weapon against women and girls. The truth is that sex happens, and rape happens, with people of all ages. Saying that girls under twelve “shouldn’t” be having sex doesn’t change the reality, and we need to face reality. Birth control must be available to girls of all ages. To say otherwise is monstrous.
