PMS, Plan B & Picking on Chicks

medspngSo, I just need to clarify. If you are a teenage girl, you can’t bring ibuprofen to school to help cure your killer cramps without getting strip searched by school personnel.

But, once you turn seventeen, you can go to any pharmacy in this great nation and get “emergency contraception,” a/k/a an early abortion pill combo, without the supervision of a doctor or even your parents.

But you still can’t bring Advil to school… unless maybe you argue that you need the ibuprofen to cure the severe abdominal cramping caused by Plan B. Then maybe the school nurse (who’s in the pocket of Planned Parenthood) will let it slide.

Hmmmmm… that all makes total sense (not). Everything’s clear as mud.

And, on a side note, that school rule had to have been written by some dude who’s never actually had cramps, but I digress.
And on another side note, I don’t care if you want to critique a woman’s job performance, but let’s try to keep it professional. So, if you don’t like Katie Couric as a news anchor (and I don’t), that’s fine. But I think it’s a little ridiculous for there to be news stories critiquing her current hair style.

This is not a conversation we’d be having about Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw, Charlie Gibson, etc. Love her or hate her, she’s spent decades in the news business earning her position, and she deserves a little more respect than that.

Emily Geiger writes from a conservative perspective on everything from politics to religion to pop culture. Like the original Emily of Revolutionary War era, this Emily is delivering important messages crucial to winning the raging war of the time, but today, this is a culture war rather than a traditional one. And, like the original Emily, sometimes it takes a woman to do (or say) that which lesser men lack the courage and tenacity to do.
