We truly are living in a brave new world.
It is apparently not enough that many forms of birth control and the “morning-after pill” are available over-the-counter and at doctor’s offices for women across the country, a Silicon Valley start-up thinks that it should be delivered to a woman’s house like a pizza using an app akin to Uber.
The Daily Mail reports:
Nurx, a Silicon Valley start-up which launched in 2015, operates in 15 states, offering females over the age of 12 access to the pill, the ring, Plan B and Ella.
Its aim is to ‘break down obstacles’ to getting birth control. While the morning-after pill is already available over-the-counter nationwide (out-of-pocket), women paying for it with insurance need to go to their doctor, which can be complicated in states which are pushing to limit contraception use.
Teenagers can use this app to order birth control or terminate any possibility of life conceived in their womb with a few swipes on their smartphone. Unreal!
Of course, promiscuous women on the left think the app is just amazing, as indicated by some of the reviews it’s received in the App Store:
It might be easy to use, but perhaps not quite as easy as simply abstaining from unprotected sex, of course.
Now, pro-life activists in Texas and North Carolina are urging lawmakers to inhibit this app’s ability to bring the morning-after pill to women in their states.
“You usually have a pharmacist, licensed facilities, and an administrator double-checking guidelines” for women getting emergency contraceptives, John Seago, legislative director for Texas Right for Life, told Stat News.
Morning after pills like Plan B and Ella are marketed as though they simply prevent conception, but they can in some cases terminate a fertilized egg before implantation.
“We believe life begins at fertilization,” Seago said. “That’s the point where we have an individual, and morally that’s who we want to protect.”
Supporters of Nurx and the morning-after pill, on the other hand, simply define pregnancy as post-implantation, which is purely out of convenience considering they are also most likely in favor of abortion.
Tami Fitzgerald, executive director of the NC Values Coalition, takes issue with the services Nurx provides as it “contravenes the right of parents to be involved in something as intimate and dangerous as taking a pill that induces abortion.”
As Life Site News reported last year, this concern is shared by the American College of Pediatrics, who warned parents about Nurx, which encourages sexual activity among incredibly young girls and offers them unmitigated access to birth control without the supervision of a doctor.
If you are a resident of North Carolina or Texas, make sure to follow these groups and see what you can do to help! Otherwise, see if Nurx is available in your state and contact local pro-life groups to express your concern that “Uber for birth control” app is bringing contraceptives to young girls in your community!
