I have a daughter in a public middle school. I know how hard it is to get a school-sanctioned Tylenol on campus. I’ve fought the “no cupcakes, they might have peanuts!” fight. Some schools are getting rid of the snack machines out of fear of giving our children access to high-fructose corn syrup.Makes you wonder, doesn't it.
But these same liberal educators are going to let the school nurse my 11-year-old full of progesterone so she can “get her groove on” without fear of pregnancy?
Please. Just give her the cupcake.
Maine runs a series of school health clinics like the one at King Middle, most commonly treating things like sore throats and giving physicals. But King, which already hands out condoms to 12-year-olds regardless of whether mom likes it, wants to expand its mission to include aiding and abetting sexual assault.
Because in Maine, the age of consent is 16, too.
Liberal activists supporting the King Middle proposal claim it’s necessary because some of their students are sexually active. Of course they are - you’re giving them sex aids! What are they supposed to do with birth control? Use it to control weight gain? Trade it for Oxy?
The only reason to give 12-year-olds the pill is because they’re having sex. But sex with a 12-year-old is a felony in Maine, so who are they supposed to have this sex with? Other 12-year-olds?
