Free Lunch and Morning-After Pills for High School Students

As the “moral fabric” of this society continues to erode, the Government is increasing its efforts to undermine and strip away parental rights. The latest assault comes from New York City where the Government has taken the role of “loco parentis.” The city that never sleeps has decided to give girls as young as 14 years old the morning after pill without the consent or knowledge of their parents. What happened to Exodus 20:12?  Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. Ephesians  6:1  Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)  That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

How can the government unilaterally decide what is best for OUR children? The pills are already being distributed in at least 50 public high schools and are supposed to combat teen pregnancy. The best way to combat teen pregnancy is Proverbs 22:6  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. One of the lessons that we should teach our children is 1 Corinthians 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. If we set the example and then teach our children the commandments about fornication, we will see the decline in fornication, teen pregnancy, HIV, and sexually transmitted diseases.

Clearly this is not a goal of NYC Public Schools. Morals and righteousness are two standards that are not part of the curriculum. Policies like this just provide us with more evidence of what the Holy Scriptures already declare. Psalms 82:5  They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. Deuteronomy 28:32  Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand. This society is doing everything that it can to insure that children learn what it wants them to learn and not what the parents teach them. No Bible in school = no morals!

The only way to take back the power and hold that the nations have over our children is to teach them the commandments in Christ. Until then, they will remain subject to this wicked society and its lack of morals. Deuteronomy 6:4-7  Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:  (5)  And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.  (6)  And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:  (7)  And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
