As a mom, I couldn't help but read this article from FOX, and laugh...all the while feeling sad because as a mother it comes down to my responsibilities. The whole article isn't seen here- and that's not the point. I don't believe in abortion as a morally acceptable practice because the Bible says so. So now that we've covered that basis- the synopsis of the article is the summarization of the choice to overturn prescription requirements for the "Plan B" pill by the federal government. Ironically, sources from supporters of the overturn stated- and I quote - "the absolute right to control our bodies without having to ask a doctor or pharmacist for permission"- is what's in debate here. See that's just it: the right to control your body is given up to a pill when using this drug. You give up the right to control your response to the pill. Allergic reaction, failed use, even fatality- you leave the choice up to the pill, not your body. Control of your body is only e getter when plan "A" is used. What is that you ask? Abstinence. Only when given the choice to choose or not to choose sex, allows a woman or man for that matter, to be fully in control of their bodies. Not some prescription. Not a parent. Not a doctor or pharmacist. I laughed because the twisted counterfeits of the world have obviously crept deep into them da of plan b supporters who believe control only lies in those who an access the drug. Even though society exemplifies loss of control in substance addiction and abuse. But my heart ached because as a mom I'm responsible for how my daughters- and son for that matter- will view their choice of "control". I am someone who chose to give into sexual temptation and know first hand just how much "control" an individual must or must not have. And I will do my very best- slathered in grace from above- to teach my kids that plan "A" is the only real choice for control their is. As a parent my heart grieves for the children who will never learn this valuable lesson. Who will watch broken parents try to fill their choice of control with substances, people, and pleasures that just leave emptier wholes. My spirit longs for the youth of the nations who will see prostitution as the only means for a living or place to stay. The babies who will only understand cheat and deception as truth. Kids who will be taught plan "B" as the norm. And worse for those who only have ever known plans "c" or "j" or "x". Oh Jesus come quickly! Parents I urge you to teach your children the plan God intended for mankind, which is abstinence. That we would see a generation of people who understand that control does in fact lie in their hands to choose a single mate in marriage. Teach your kids plan "A".
