More loonyness from Oregon: thanks to ObamaCARE 15-Year-Old girls get sterilized for Free–without parental consent
In the state where you go to jail for a month if you collect rain water on your own property (Oregon), 15 year old girls can now be sterilized for free, without without parental consent thanks to ObamaCARE. When the ObamaCARE birth-control mandate began on August 1st, health care plans in Oregon were required to provide free sterilizations to 15- year-old girls even if the parents of those girls do not consent to the procedure. I knew Oregon was a loony Democrat state, but even California or Vermont don’t have these requirements. Oregon is one of the few states I haven’t visited yet in my lifetime. I see no point of ever giving my money to a state is whacked out as this.
It says that all health care plans in the United States–except those provided by actual houses of worship organized under the section of the Internal Revenue Code reserved for churches per se–must provide coverage, without cost-sharing, for sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives to “all women with reproductive capacity.”
In practical terms, “all women with reproductive capacity” means girls as young as about 12. That, according to the National Institutes of Health, is when girls usually start menstruating.
