Plan B and the Demise of Parental Rights
Anna Higgins, Family Research Council
are meant to be the fundamental guiding
influence of a child’s life. They are responsible for nurturing,
protecting, and providing for their children. This system, established
creation by God, is the foundation of every stable,
However, our government has attempted to undermine parental rights and distance parents as much as possible from important decisions affecting their children. This is happening despite the fact that the Supreme Court has long upheld the highest standards of protection for the rights of parents to educate and bring up their children without interference.
The latest blow to the traditional family structure has been leveled by “reproductive rights” groups, a federal judge, and the FDA – all of which support the availability of a high dose hormonal contraceptive over the counter to young girls without a prescription.Read more
Women Who Became Pregnant Through Sexual Assault Say, "Ask Us"
Petition Signers Say Using Their Situation to Promote Abortion Stops Women from Getting Authentic Help
by Amy at Elliot Institute
Abortion and sexual assault pregnancy is a difficult subject for many people, especially since no one wants to hurt those who have already been traumatized.
