A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

No morning after pill, no federal money for a high school.

NORTH BERWICK, Maine, January 12, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Maine high school that had plans to offer contraception to students and screen for sexually transmitted diseases has been told that they cannot access federal funding for the project unless they drop their restrictions on distributing abortifacient “emergency contraception” or the “morning after pill.”

(So let me see if I got it straight. Giving out condoms and screening for STD's isn't good enough. There has to be a foot in the door for abortion? And it IS abortion, the pill is taken in the event of unintended contraception possibly occuring. As I said, it's a foot in the door. IMHO the next step is abortion without parental consent.)

The Foster’s Daily Democrat reports that Noble High School was denied Title X “family planning” funds from the federal government on the basis that offering “emergency contraception” at the school’s health-clinic was a necessary prerequisite. Although the school’s health-center secured $18,000 in state funds, the school was denied matching funds from the federal government for that reason. (18K buys a lot of rubbers.)

The School Board now faces the possibility of having to revisit the issue entirely if the slim chance that the federal government may reconsider its decision does not pan out.

Offering "sexual health" services to students was a hotly debated issue, and Foster’s reports that the plan passed the School Board in October only by a narrow 5-4 vote with the stipulation that the morning-after pill not be distributed to students and that no district funds pay for the project.

Some days I feel like I've fallen through a wormhole into the Bizarro Universe. This is one of those days.

Why is health care a school district's business?
