Drug Wars

By Judie Brown

Louisiana is in hot water with the abortion cartel after the labeling of abortion drugs as controlled substances. According to state laws defining such drugs, if the substance in question is dangerous, then the classification is not only suitable but warranted. Not so fast, say the ever-vigilant members of the abortion cartel.

In fact, physicians interviewed by TIME magazine say “delays in patients receiving access to these medications” may lead to serious or life-threatening situations. But as we know, those who support aborting children often use the sop that women may suffer or die if they are not legally able to abort their children.

This claim has been refuted on numerous occasions, but for the proponents of abortion, desperation is the seedbed of deception. These are the people, after all, who refuse to admit that a baby exists during pregnancy. There seems to be something horrible in the very mention of that word. And when someone denies such a basic fact, can we really expect them to be honest about anything?

In today’s climate, the question of contraceptive use has become a political matter rather than a question of whether or not such practices are moral.

Recall that in 1968 Pope Paul VI wrote about “responsible men” who “reflect on the consequences of methods and plans for artificial birth control.” His words are even more important now, in this age of drug wars launched against the most defenseless people in our society. In explaining human weakness and the temptations that exist, he said that the use of contraceptives may cause men to “forget the reverence due to a woman, and, disregarding her physical and emotional equilibrium, reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires, no longer considering her as his partner whom he should surround with care and affection.”

Yet here we are in 2024, 56 years later, discussing drugs that can kill a preborn child at any point during her first 10 weeks of life, a fact that is accepted in our self-absorbed pro-death society.

Clearly the culture has slipped farther down the rabbit hole of egoism and father away from the basic human biological fact that chastity prevents pregnancy and that promiscuity can be the occasion for it. We don’t want to hear that because, as various studies have shown, many parents are aware that their children are sexually active.

Yet even in the age of technology, drug availability, and access to abortion, the fact still remains that those young people equipped with a proper understanding of the birds and the bees appear to have a much healthier chance at being chaste. And no matter what age we are living through, sexual health matters.

Drug wars are nothing new, at least not in the contraceptive/abortion domain. It was Margaret Sanger in the 1920s who led the first drug war in her quest to legitimize birth control for the poor.

Today the tools are different, but the end game is the same: rendering women unable to become pregnant so that they do not have to be concerned about childbearing as they freely participate in sexual activity. The victims in the war are women and preborn babies.

This is so because, in a war, the goal is victory at any price.
