So, why do supporters of abortion rights hate parental consent laws?

For the very same reason they hate laws requiring the mother be shown an ultrasound. Such laws reduce the number of abortions, and that cuts into the profit margin a bit. The “pro-choice” folks want women to have abortions, because abortions are big money to Planned Parenthood. And anything that reduces abortions is bad in their view.

First, the statistics are clear: parental consent laws reduce the minor abortion rate by 18.7 percent, while parental notification laws reduce the abortion rate by about 5 percent.

In fact, when these percentages are fleshed out in terms of the age of the minor, the effect of parental consent statutes is even more apparent. In states with parental consent laws, the abortion rate declines by 23.1 percent for 17-year-olds, by 19.9 percent for 16-year-olds, and by 16.6 percent for 15-year-olds.

H/T to Stacy McCain, who also touches on several other sex-related stories.

Why being Muslim apparently makes it OK to have sex with a minor

The Daily Mail (UK) reports:

A muslim who raped [in the sense of statutory rape -EV] a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.

Adil Rashid, 18, claimed he was not aware that it was illegal for him to have sex with the girl because his education left him ignorant of British law.

Yesterday Judge Michael Stokes handed Rashid a suspended sentence, saying: ‘Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.’

Stacy also skewers Feminists A.K.A Ugly Sluts and their culture of promiscuity

Just ask yourself: Why are feminists so angry at men? It’s not merely because they are ugly — not all ugly women are feminists — but rather because they are bitter after discovering that their promiscuity doesn’t actually make them more attractive (which popular culture had convinced them would be the case).

That’s what all the rhetoric about “sexual empowerment” is really aimed at, and it’s also why feminists get so riled up about “slut shaming.”

Having convinced themselves that promiscuity is “sexual empowerment,” feminists must expunge from our language such fine Anglo-Saxon words as slut and whore, as part of an ideological campaign to exterminate whatever vestigal remnants of Judeo-Christian morality may have survived the Sexual Revolution. And because this is justified by the Official Group Ideology and approved by the Official Group Leaders, no man may criticize it without being denounced as a misogynistic patriarchal oppressor. Any woman who questions the “sexual empowerment” rhetoric — “Hey, why is it so ’empowering’ to risk getting your ladyparts all gunked up with herpes, genital warts and chlamydia?” — is ostracized as a Traitor to the Revolutionary Cause.

Go read the whole post, it is some very insightful thinking that sums up the radical nature of modern-day Feminism, which really has nothing to do with empowering women, but everything to do with empowering the Feminist leaders.

 

Your DaleyGator Dose of Wisdom for a Wednesday

No political correctness

America, unlike every other nation in History, was founded on a set of ideas. They were based on the wisdom gathered over the millennia and absorbed by The Founding Fathers. That modern Americans are willing to deny the legitimacy of such ideas when shamed into feeling guilty about holding them by people who want to destroy everything we stand for is a sign of a people gone soft.

Political Correctness is nothing but a tactic straight out of the Leftist Playbook that seeks to undermine our confidence in our capacity to reason. It aims to sow self-doubt. It often works because it plays on the natural human tendency of people brought up in a Judeo-Christian Culture to feel guilt [PC-inspired guilt is misplaced guilt; the only guilt we should feel is when we disappoint God].

Could This Be One Explanation?

We are perishing in an orgy of PC-based guilt and unless we resolve to cast this misplaced guilt into the depths of the oblivion it deserves, we shall be consumed by it and overrun by America’s enemies [most likely, the Left].

 

Very well stated sir!
