High School Pregnancy Pacts

November 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Counter-CutRemember the brouhaha about the High School Pregnancy pacts a few years ago? The rash of stories about high school girls who made pacts to get pregnant?

The stories made great headlines, but appear to have been falsely reported in at least one case.  Read more in “Real truth about Gloucester 18’s ‘Pregnancy Pact’”.

I know this is “old” news and perhaps not of much interest any more.  But I found it surprising and wanted to share it with you because the truth matters, and

Sex, Students, and Teachers

Counter-CutRegrettably we hear news of yet another teacher accused of sexual misconduct in a public high school. It seems so commonplace and boring today that it doesn’t receive even a moment’s attention in the mainstream media.  It’s not even news any more.

But the real shocker starts in paragraph 7 and has nothing to do with the teacher’s case: Read more…

I came across this article while doing some research for the last post, Ignore History and Gamble the Future.  The article is so significant that it could not be included in that blog, but needed to be highlighted as a separate entry because it was totally ignored by the mainstream media in the United States.

The article below is a must read to truly understand the core issue regarding Obama’s birth control/abortion mandate.  The abstract follows:

“(CNSNews.com) – On Feb. 16, Roman Catholic Bishop William E.

The bishop, who chairs the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee on Religious Liberty, submitted written testimony which he called, “The Parable of the Kosher Deli.” Here the bishop used an analogy to explain the Catholic Church’s argument against the contraception mandate. The bishop’s “parable” was not reported in the establishment press. Fox News did quote one line from it, as did ABC–not the ABC here in the United States, but the Australian Broadcasting Company.

Birth Control Reality: It’s Readily Available!

Law student and reproductive rights activist Sandra Fluke testified before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on Feb. 23, 2012.  She complained that contraception could cost a law student up to $3000 for three years.  This is so much that she could not afford it.  She was testifying to support the need for Obamacare’s mandate for birth control and abortions.

All is not as it looks:  One can purchase three years of birth control for a mere $324 at a Target store just three miles from the campus.  We don’t need the Government’s interference.  See link below:
