A Soda Banned in Sixth-Grade… But IUDs Are Okay (Sick World)

Take note that I do not know if this procedure has been done yet to a sixth-grader, however, this is not the point. Them being able to do so without parental consent — IS the issue. And we can thank the philosophy or the progressive left [the base of the Democrat Party] for this exciting new frontier sexualizing everything, by law. Which doesn’t surprise me in that one of the most left-leaning Justices on the Supreme Court argued while working at the ACLU to lower the age of consent from 16-to-12… what a “brave new world.”

Schools Implant IUDs in Girls as Young as 6th Grade Without Their Parents Knowing

Earlier this month, LifeNews.com reported on a high school in Seattle, Washington that is now implanting intrauterine devices (IUD), as well as other forms of birth control and doing so without parental knowledge or permission.

The IUD is known as a long acting reversible contraception, and may even act as an abortifacient. So, a young teen in Seattle can’t get a coke at her high school, but she can have a device implanted into her uterus, which can unknowingly kill her unborn child immediately after conception. Or, if she uses another method, she can increase her chances of health risks for herself, especially if using a new method.

The high school, Chief Sealth International, a public school, began offering the devices in 2010, made possible by a Medicaid program known as Take Charge and a non-profit, Neighborcare. Students can receive the device or other method free of cost and without their parent’s insurance. And while it’s lauded that the contraception is confidential, how can it be beneficial for a parent-child relationship when the parents don’t even know the devices or medication their daughter is using?

As it turns out, Chief Sealth isn’t the only school in Seattle doing this. As CNS News reports, more schools are fitting young girls — as young as 6th grade — with the devices and doing so without their parents knowing.

Middle and high school students can’t get a Coca-Cola or a candy bar at 13 Seattle public schools, but they can get a taxpayer-funded intrauterine device (IUD) implanted without their parents’ consent.

School-based health clinics in at least 13 Seattle-area public high schools and middle schools offer long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), including IUDs and hormonal implants, to students in sixth-grade and above at no cost, according to Washington State officials….

Here is another story on the same issue:

Public schools in Seattle are offering more than just an education; they are offering teen girls of any age the opportunity to get free IUDs implanted into their uterus and other long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) without parental consent at clinics right in the school setting. According to New York Magazine, the ability to get an IUD inserted in school, for free, removes barriers for teens who do not want to discuss the option with their parents or risk involving their parents’ health insurance policies.

Washington law states that minors of any age are permitted to obtain birth control services without a parent’s consent. Meanwhile, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends LARCs, like IUDs, as the most effective way to prevent teen pregnancy.

If a girl in a Seattle public school would like to have an IUD inserted into her uterus without talking to her parents about it and without her parents ever knowing, she can simply consult with an in-school clinic and apply for the Washington state Medicaid program called “Take Charge” to pay for the service instead.

Salon reported that teens at one Seattle high school, Chief Sealth International School, are lining up to get their IUDs inserted.

“Contrasting sharply with the attitudes toward sex and sexuality promoted at countless public schools across the country, Chief Sealth International School is taking a different approach, offering students the option to receive the contraceptive of their choice at no cost and without having to use their parents’ health insurance. Thanks to a Washington state Medicaid program called Take Charge and the nonprofit Neighborcare, teens can access confidential counseling on different birth control methods — and LARC insertion — more easily than they can buy a soda.”…
