Democrat Policies Will Create More Pregnant 10-Year-Olds
The end of Roe v. Wade, while a tremendous constitutional victory, is far from enough to end abortion in America. Many states in the U.S. will see just as many abortions -- if not more -- as they would have if Roe had never been overturned. What’s more, the (seemingly always) angry left in America seems ever more determined to bring even more sexual deviancy into our culture.
As the last several decades have taught us, the left doesn’t need an excuse to push the sexual boundaries in America, but losing Roe seems to have pushed many into a deeper darkness when it comes to matters in the sexual realm.
After the Dobbs decision which overturned Roe, Teen Vogue, a magazine for adolescents, published an article entitled “How to Get an Abortion if You’re a Teen After Roe v. Wade Was Overturned.” The article goes to great lengths to undermine parents of pregnant teenagers, declaring, “Having access to abortion should be your right, regardless of your parents’ beliefs.”
The article goes on to say,
If you aren’t comfortable telling a parent about your decision to have an abortion, you can seek what’s called a “judicial bypass” in one of the many states that has this system. Judicial bypass allows you to go directly before a judge and get approval from that judge to have an abortion, rather than having consent from your parents. Yes, it’s paternalistic and unfair that you literally have to get permission from someone else to choose what to do with your body, but it is an option for legal abortion.
The piece also included a link to an “interactive map” on abortion access throughout the United States. Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised. As a RedState writer recently noted -- recalling the infamous “A Guide to Anal Sex” -- Teen Vogue has been “a pioneer” in marketing sex to kids. I suppose if you’re going to sell immoral sex to kids, you may as well promote the immoral “solution” to immoral sex as well.
Along with garbage media like Teen Vogue, the left in America has widely taken to using “
Drag Demon Queens” -- specifically “ Drag Demon Queen Story Hour” (DQSH) -- to sell sex to children. In a recent piece at the Huffington Post, one of the “organizers” of DQSH -- "Lil Miss Hot Mess” -- in an effort to defend DQSH, promoted drag events as a “decidedly queer practice” that help assert “the right to queer.”
RuPaul -- the infamous celebrity promoter of all things drag -- describes drag as a “very, very political” act because it “challenges the status quo.” He further adds, “Drag says ‘I'm a shapeshifter, I do whatever the hell I want at any given time.’” It seems doing “whatever the hell I want at any given time” now includes promoting a perverse sexual culture to children.
With DQSH now having occurred for years in many U.S. cities, with little real pushback, those devoted to the evil LGBTMYNAMEISLEGION agenda now feel emboldened to have kids attend actual drag shows (and even participate in them!). One promoter of this evil boldly declares, “children belong at drag shows!” (WARNING: previous link is extremely graphic!) These are highly sexual events where partial to near-full nudity is frequent, and the language and actions during the shows are filled with sexual innuendo. (This type of garbage is also often present at most every “Pride” parade.)
And the Democrat Party -- at the highest levels -- seems all for this evil. Michigan’s attorney general, Dana Nessel -- a Democrat -- has called for “A drag queen for every school!” Nessel’s full quote:
A drag queen for every school! That is what would be fun for the kids and lift them up when they are having emotional issues. Drag queens -- not only are they not hurting our kids -- drag queens make everything better! Drag queens are fun.
Since 2018, New York City has paid over $200,000 to Drag Story Hour NYC to read books to K-12 students. New York mayor Eric Adams -- a Democrat -- defended the practice, stating, “The goal is not only for our children to be academically smart, but also emotionally intelligent. Drag storytellers, and the libraries and schools that support them, are advancing a love of diversity, personal expression, and literacy that is core to what our city embraces.”
Last year, Alaska Democrats used their resources to promote a DQSH event. A Facebook post announced, “The Alaska Democratic Party is proud to host this event virtually so Alaskans across the state can now enjoy story time together.”
In an appearance on “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars,” Nancy Pelosi stated that drag queens are “what America is all about.” According to the Heritage Foundation, in an effort to force schools throughout America to promote the transgender agenda, the Biden administration “skipped over Congress and any rule-making processes and are threatening to withhold federal school lunches from low-income children in schools where boys are not allowed to participate in girls sports or access girls bathrooms.”
Scott McKay at the American Spectator is right, “The evidence of the Left’s designs on America’s children is everywhere.” And the Democrat Party’s fingerprints are all over these “designs.” I suppose this is why the left wants to make sure that 10-year-olds can get abortions.
During the past week, in order to push their abortion/sex agenda, Democrats throughout the U.S. widely, and quickly, spread the story of a 10-year-old rape victim in Ohio, who, due to Ohio’s restrictions, had to flee to Indiana to obtain an abortion. The story has yet to be verified and appears to be nothing more than more vile leftist propaganda.
If the modern left, and today’s Democrat Party, truly cared about pregnant 10-year-olds, they would stop promoting policies that helped create them.
UPDATE: There is now some indication that the story of a pregnant 10-year-old in Ohio who went to Indiana to obtain an abortion may be true. From Twitchy:
The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Gershon Fuentes, a 27-year-old Columbus man, has been charged with the rape of a 10-year-old girl who traveled to Indianapolis for an abortion...And the report says Fuentes is “believed to be undocumented.”
In other words, it appears that Fuentes is an illegal immigrant. If this is indeed the case, the premise of this piece is spot on, though in a way not specifically mentioned in my original version of this piece. I failed to note the U.S. southern border disaster, which, along with allowing the entry of child rapists, is also a tremendous gateway for sex trafficking. Of course, it is the policies of the Democrat Party that are specifically and especially responsible for the illegal entry into the U.S. by purported criminals like Fuentes.
