As of August 1st, young girls in Oregon are now set to receive free sterilizations without any parental consent thanks to a regulation contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare). After being finalized by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius earlier this year, the mandate allows for girls as young as 15 years old to go against parental wishes (or just not tell them) and receive sterilizations covered by their health care plan.

In fact, the teenage girls can still receive the procedure even if the parents openly object.

The bill states more specifically that all health care plans throughout the United States must provide 100% full coverage, without any cost-sharing, for not only all forms of sterilizations but all forms of contraceptives approved by the FDA for women “with reproductive capacity.” In other words, any woman with the ability to reproduce. Considering the rate of puberty is rapidly accelerating in the United States, this age is very much up for debate. Girls as young as 8 are now giving birth, meaning that this law could apply to these young women who are literally “fit” to reproduce.

On average, however, the term would apply to girls around the age of 12, which is now the generally accepted age as to when girls begin to menstruate.

The consent form even allows for the possibility of a 3rd party signer acting as an ‘interpreter’ for those who are impaired or cannot speak English. The form, which the 15 year old girls are given to sign before receiving their sterilizations, reads:

“I understand that the sterilization must be considered permanent and not reversible,” says this consent form. “I have decided that I do not want to become pregnant, bear children or father children.”

The regulation is highly similar to previous legislation mandates such as the California bill that allowed girls as young as 12 to receive the Gardasil shot without any parental consent. It also is in the same vein as the ruthless Eugenics campaigns of the 20th century that are openly admitted. In what started out as voluntary sterilizations, the U.S. government forcibly sterilized over 60,000 people between 1929 and 1974. States like North Carolina have considered paying the families of victims in monetary compensation to ‘make up’ for the government-enforced sterilization program.

    When would you specifiy that a woman is no longer a girl? Do you have a better guideline than the beginning of menstruation? If that begins "on average" at the age of 12, then why wouldn't 12 year old girls be classified as women for this legislation? And in that case, what is wrong with the facts put forth by the article regarding girls' ages versus sterilization?

    As for your "rabid base" comment, if you can find factual fault in the article, then please present it. Or you can play the liberal game of attacking the source without the bothersome practice of actually providing evidence of why you're attacking. Either way, your own behavior and vehement tone seems a little more "rabid" than the tone of the article.

    Have a nice day!

    This article — as it was originally written on a "right-wing news site — was written to incite its rabid base. Think about it for one minute… the mandate merely says "women" with no age specified. So, whose fault would it be if your state defines "women as age 15" or "age 12"??? Of course it would be the individual state. Duh!

    Very disingenuous per usual ……..
