Obamacare Begins Child Sterilization, Without Parental Consent Comments

With back-to-school season in full swing across the nation, parents in Oregon have more to worry about than shopping for sweaters and purchasing pencils. In the state of Oregon, the Obamacare mandate, which went into effect on August 1, 2012, provides free sterilizations to girls as young as fifteen. Now, your daughter, your high school freshman, can choose, without your consent, to be permanently sterilized. Continue Reading

    Taylor, Respectfully, this has everything to do with Obamacare. Obamacare mandates that this service be provided in all states to women of childbearing age. All a weak-kneed legislator, comfortably ensconced in his sinecure needs is an excuse to go back on a politically expedient stance against under age sterilizatioln. The Feds will steamroll the individual states into accepting this, and it will be years before (if ever) it can be undone. It has taken decades for some states to successfully push back on full term abortions. This will be the same...especially with an Obama packed Judiciary.

    Unbelievable! I looked it up and it really is true! 15 year olds allowed to permanently sterlize themselves without parental consent. Beyond ridiculous, in fact, sick of mind and heart. Is this really going to happen?

    What an alarmist story. it's already hard to find a doctor willing to perform sterilization on women under 25 that have multiple children already. I think the number of teens that would sneak a sterilization surgery under their parents noses would be extremely low. The idea we're moving towards a generation of sterile persons because of this is ridiculous.

    I think it's wonderful that a permanent option is available to all men & women for free if they're insured. And all women of childbearing age, including teenagers, SHOULD have the freedom to choose whether or not to have children and what methods to use to prevent or encourage this.

    Grafton, Only in the bizzaro world of "progressivism" where anyone who disagrees with your credo is automatically a "hater" or ignorant or whose opinion, when different from yours, is merely "political spin", can the attempt to prevent a mother from killing her own offspring be considered "malice".

    Oregon law makes it legal for children to choose. Obamacare makes it free (and therefore highly accessible). Neither are right.

    I can't believe that you would allow a fifteen year old to make such a decision alone or at all for that matter. What is so wrong with teaching someone to save themselves for marriage. If they do not want children let them make that decision with their husband when they are mature adults. You will never convince me that fifteen year old understands what they are doing. At that age they are not as concerned with consequences. How about we save money by teaching them, first at home, how to abstane.

    I can not believe what I just read? So at 15 they think these kids can make that kind of decision! The maker of this Law should be put in jail forever for endangering the future lives our kids children. Seriously we should all be on their front door step! THEY NEED TO GO!

    Mo one seems to know the historical facts of this debate or the consequences.
    Obamacare is based on Romneys healthcare mandates as governor of Massachusetts.
    Romneys plan required and funded the exact same things!
    Do any of you know what romneys healthcare plan is if elected?
