Rep.Bonamici, Rep.Schrader/DeFazio, Blumenauer: Are they leading the effort to take apart the American Family

Congresswoman Bonamici, Congressman Schrader/DeFazio & Blumenauer – Are they leading the effort to take apart the American Family? Sterilization of little girls - Obamacare.
It’s a great day for the Nation well maybe not. I’ll give you the facts as best I can figure it all out and you can decide if you as women like the fact that your daughter/s should have the opportunity to be sterilized without talking about the situation to you or another trusted adult. The Federal government from what I read and can understand classifies girls as young as 12 to be able to be sterilized without their parent’s approval, “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”. Parts of Oregon have decided that girls 15 and over are good enough. What will your state decide is the right age?
Remember when you were 12, 15, and 16 and how hard it was sometimes to decide things on your own. There was always peer pressure, bullying and the cool thing that everyone was doing was. Today those issues still exist and exist I think at a more aggressive level. The relationship between girls 12-18 between their peers and parents are different and we have to accept that and communicate with our children the best we can. I do not want the government telling me how that relationship should be. Remember how you use to make some decisions and then later think – Why did I do that?
Usually it was no big deal and everything worked out. Sterilization however is not a – Why did I do that? It’s a big deal and it is a life changing event. A young girl (12-18) may not think she wants children but little girls grow up to be women that may want to have a family.
My opinion: The government does not have right to tell women that 12-18 girls can be sterilized without parental permission. Little girls do not have the maturity level to think the process through. The government has lost all ‘Common Sense’.
A few other questions to think about:
The consent form for ‘15-20 Consent to Sterilization’ requires girls to give her race if a few selected categories.
- Why does the government want to track the race of 15-20 old girls that get sterilized without their parent’s approval?
- Why was the government so specific in the categories?
- Black (not of Hispanic origin)
- White (not of Hispanic origin)
- Asian/Pacific Islander
- American Indian/Alaska native (Oregon Health Authority Consent Form)
The categories the government (state and/or federal?) picked are not all-inclusive of what a researcher would use.
It’s now time to ask:
Should I know who my Congressional Representatives are?
Should I know my Congressional Representatives voting record?
Remember, your Congressional Representatives are NOT to be worshiped and they are NOT hero’s they are your ‘employee’s’, employees that need to be held accountable for their actions.
Do you know what they do on a daily bases?
You should, they work for you – your boss tracks your performance… Remember, they have a JOB and if they don’t like their JOB or can’t handle it they need to find a new one.
Comment from my Facebook page when I posted my thoughts today: but their nice people….
Reality, they may be very nice people. I don't care if they are nice people - they work for me. I am their boss and I do not like their work performance it has NOTHING to do with the fact that they may be nice people.
Do Daily Updates:
As I do: Reviewed their web sites and their staff that Americans pay for didn’t update their status no information available to tell me where they are and what they are doing today. Americans pay them and they have the best benefits a human can have.
- Where are they?
- What are they doing?
Americans have NO one to blame but themselves for the mess we are in.
