Contraception: UK Style

Standard

Contraception UK style seems to be what Obamacare would want for our children too…in secret out of the sight of parental rights and concerns.

After I read the article from the United Kingdom, my first question was: did the girls even understand what was happening? Did they understand that this implant would last for years? That this implant could cause other serious medical problems? Are 13 year old girls ready to take on the consequences that seem to be forced upon them from the government? And what about the possible problems when they do decide to have children?

But my biggest outrage was that the government made the decision for the girls, the parents and the future generations that these girls will bring forth….if they can.

This story reminded me of so many things that have happened and are slated to happen in the world and in our own USA. First, it reminded me of an article I read about the World Health Organization giving tetanus shots to girls in mostly Catholic countries such as the Philippines, Venezuela, and others. They told the woman and girls that it was a series of 3 injections that needed to be given at certain intervals.

a) Tetanus shots are a single injection given every 10 years
b) It was later learned that the WHO had decided that there was too much of a population explosion in those countries and so with lies and sterilizing medications, they pharmaceutically sterilized thousands of girls from 9 to 30.

So there’s a generation changed for a few countries. And those women had no clue what these outsiders had just done to their customs, their lives, their futures.

And then we have the universal health care of the Europe that the United States is salivating to have as well. A plan called the Patient Protection and Affordability Care Act also known as Obamacare. There is already controversy over many of the provisions….contraception for starters. PPACA wants those of faith to abandon or forget their morals and beliefs to bow down and accept a health plan that contradicts their beliefs.

Instead of backing off from forcing contraception coverage onto those whose beliefs or morals run counter to PPACA, President Obama opted to go with forcing insurance companies to get contraception to the people. That will just raise the rates of the insurance coverage and/or the taxpayer will once again be forced to pay for things that they do not believe in nor want.

Believe it or not there are some people who have morals, convictions and beliefs within and without of a religious community. There are those that are opposed to contraception, abortion, and laws that force them upon people, especially those that are not able to yet understand the consequences of those actions.

PPACA, Obamacare, Socialized Medicine, Universal Healthcare is all about controlling the lives of those it covers. They, those appointed by its controllers (the government), decide who will get what services and when. There have been hundreds of examples of how that works in other countries. Those countries have higher taxes and their people have more dependence on the government for their health. There are stories of doctors drinking through lunch with patients on the operating table waiting for their return. Normally, that would mean lawsuits and other such hazard warnings, but in Socialized countries, it IS the norm. Either way, I thought that the home of the free would mean that we could choose what doctor we saw and when.

We have social programs in place and perhaps they need to be beefed up to meet more needs of more people. But we the taxpayers are already screaming at the high taxes. Listen…it is going to get worse with Obamacare. We will be paying for every surgery–elective and not–when it is fully implemented. We will pay for those things that make sense and those things that don’t. Everyone wants to think that it will be wonderful and altruistic, but it will really be expensive, time consuming, and opens the door for all sorts of abuse.

And don’t forget–the ones shoving it down our throats are the very ones that will NOT be covered by it. Those Congressional Hillbillies will be sitting pretty with their Cadillac plan (as they like to call it) that will get them better doctors, hospitals and quicker service.

But for now ….just think about those 13 year old girls now protected against pregnancy for who know how long, and not knowing the side effects or if there will be any permanent damage to their future. It won’t stop the activity that could get them pregnant–in fact it might hasten it. And then think about your daughter, your niece, your friends…..

Is this what we want? ………………

…………………..I say NO!

LIFE, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness

Standard

3 little words….and yet so hard to attain. Our forefathers who escaped from the “Old World” to the “New World” for religious freedom, forged an idea of a country where freedom and liberty where ideals to be given to every one. They valued people’s thoughts, ideas, and that American spirit of ingenuity and drive to succeed. Since our very inception we have strove to show the world that democracy and the common person could change not only a country, but the world.

We are currently seeming to go through an identity crisis. Instead of showing the world what we could be, we are trying so hard to become what the rest of the world is. We have let the rest of the world convince us that their way is best in some matters. We are letting ourselves be persuaded into ideas and taunted with influences that we escaped from over 200 years ago,

And why do I mention it today, January 23, 2012? Because it is the 39th anniversary of one of the most controversial, most divisive, most influential piece of history of our country: the Roe v Wade case in the Supreme Court. And what goes to the core of the basic tenets of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness than this one single court decision.

Being raised as a human and not a pig or a tree, and having taken biology in school, and deciding that I could think and decide for myself, I have decided that I am a human being that came from other human beings. I don’t care what the popular thinking of the day may be, I will believe that God created me in His own image. That He formed me in my mother’s womb.

Popular thinking, or should I say rationalization, would have us thinking that we were just a bunch of cells or a tumor that suddenly became human when we took that first breath. I am a bunch of cells, knitted together by God’s own hand to form me, the person, the human, the Child of God that I am.

Last year I reposted a status on my Facebook page that sparked a debate between someone who had befriended me that was like minded and my boss, a doctor whom I thought was also Pro-Life. She, I now know, is a modern thinker who believes that we are all just a mass of tissue that is waste. Meanwhile she threatened my job via text messages demanding that I delete the post or comment agreeing with her. I deleted it…I just don’t like people arguing on my page. And neither of them was respecting me. It does bother me that I work for someone who would threaten my job over a personal belief that life begins at conception. But I keep my views on that out of the office and let her be the doctor. (Although it sometimes makes me wonder how she can fight for the life of a patient while denying it to others.)

Today is a day to thank Moms, Mothers, Grams, and Nanas that gave birth to us. For whatever reason, they had the courage to carry us in their wombs and give us life so that we could fight for liberty with others and enjoy the pursuit of happiness.

I cannot answer for those that have chosen to purposely, decisively, and consciously abort a child, but I do have to answer for me. I could not and would not be able to do it. God does not make mistakes. People do. And this is one mistake that shows the selfish nature of mankind. If it’s not a baby, and is just a tumor….then how come other women prepare for this tumor to arrive? If it is just a mass of tissues, then how come we can somewhat accurately predict when it will be come to term and be born? If it is just a mass, why do we plan and pray and hope for a child? I don’t know one brain cancer patient that knows that in approximately 9 months they will have a bouncing baby boy that has their grandmother’s eyes or grandpa’s hands.

I can’t make someone not decide to do something, all I can do is express my thoughts, my reasons, and hope that they listen and heed my words. I will not force them. I will not hate them. But I will pray for them. I will pray that they decide to do as their mother did and carry this entrusted human being to the time of birth. Then decide what is best for the child…to keep him or her, or to give the child to a family that yearns to have one. And trust me, that family is not waiting for a tree or a pig either. They are awaiting a child.

In many cultures, the birth of a child is a cause of celebration. In Native American cultures, the child is presented at the next dawn so that the day can greet him or her. In Chinese culture, children are given their first birthday party at 3 months because of their belief in life at conception. In other cultures, children are greeted and feted because they are the future of their family, their clan, their region, their country, their world.

In 1973, the United States Supreme Court decided that a woman had the choice to end that future. Since that time, laws and regulations have been put forth that have divided families and faiths over the decision of their members. We now see fewer workers having to pay for Social Security costs. We have fewer voters. We have fewer leaders.

Since that time, human life has been devalued. We think nothing of in vitro fertilization where the “extras” are flushed down the toilet. We think nothing of euthanasia. Assisted suicide is fought in the courts and triumphant yells are heard when someone is allowed to kill themselves. We as a country lost our conscience that day.

Pro-Abortionists celebrate today as a day women won the right to do what they wanted to their bodies. They celebrate that now they can have their careers and their lives back without a nuisance of children. They celebrate their selfishness. They forget that not all women are not heartless. They forget that some of those women and girls regret their decision and have problems going on in life.

But then we live in a world where the death penalty is also celebrated by those same people. Their “we are educated and you are not” attitude lets them think that they are better than the common man and can stop common man from killing while they kill the common man for his mistakes.

And now we have Obamacare or PPACA….the first ones to cry out separation of church and state are the first ones to force demand religious institutions to go against their beliefs, their tenets, their faith and demand that they allow abortions. We as a nation are losing our Life, our Liberty, and our pursuit of Happiness. We allow our officials to vote our very freedoms out of our existence. We are becoming the socialized community that Europe is. We are becoming the communistic country we didn’t want in the 1950’s. We are letting the government and its many branches decide what is right and wrong instead of making those decisions for ourselves.

We must repeal PPACA. We must choose life. For if we choose death, then we have let the future down.
