Quinn’s Sex Pills for 11-year-old Girls
Christine Quinn in the Post (Wed., 8-21) says “she’s open to allowing middle-school girls as young as 11 to receive the morning-after contraceptive pill.”
She thinks she is being pragmatic but she is actually showing her underlying dislike of sexual differences. Confused by her own sexuality and gender, she believes that pushing contraception on children is not in any way awkward nor immoral. No wonder she has received a mayoral endorsement from the anti-family Planned Parenthood of New York City Political Committee.
Sexuality need not be related to the practical use of contraception. It has its own magnificent chemistry and must not be cheapened by removing sanctions and making it overly easy. Encouraging children to have sex is to steal their youth from them.
It is sick, whether or not practical, to give contraception to eleven years olds. Although it is no longer popular to say, lesbians have problems in that they view the world differently from ninety-nine per cent of the population. And they only get away with it because they are enabled by angry liberals who are mortally afraid of being labeled homophobic, even when it is appropriate to be so.
