If you thought the liberal nightmare at public schools was bad, get this: a school in Seattle implanted IUDs on teenage students–and did so without their parents’ permission.
An IUD is far more invasive than giving students condoms or other external forms of birth control. It’s a long-acting birth control device that gets actually implanted inside the uterus of a woman (or in this case, teenage girl.) While it’s an invasive implant inside the body, it is reversible and can be taken out–the school isn’t sterilizing women.
It’s highly effective at stopping pregnancies–but, like anything inside the body, has a number of side effects, which parents would obviously want to know about.
It also works as an “abortifacient,” which means it causes a fertilized egg to reject implantation–essentially causing a kind of abortion without the woman’s knowledge.
The school giving them out without parental permission is Chief Sealth High School in Seattle, Washington. Even more curiously, they’re providing them with a federal grant: these IUDs are being paid by Medicaid, through a program called “Take Charge.”
Chief Sealth High School has been offering IUDs since 2010, and is just one of a number of area schools handing out this kind of invasive birth control–some going to girls as young as sixth grade.
Access to birth control is one thing. Giving teenage girls an invasive device that zaps all pregnancies with an automatic abortion–and doing so with our tax dollars and without parental permission–is a whole other thing.
Another chapter in the liberal Left’s crazy takeover of public education: this time, putting abortions over the well-being of teenage girls, and keeping parents in the dark.
