FDA creeping into my daughter's bedroom

A 17 year old woman in the US can't vote (legally).

She can't buy alcohol for four more years. She can't even serve it in a restaurant.

In 34 states she can't have an abortion without parental consent/notification.

She can't join the Army without consent of a parent.

She can't rent a car for 8 more years.

She can't purchase a rifle, shotgun, or handgun, nor even the ammunition for them.

She can't purchase tobacco products.

She can't gamble at a casino or even buy a Powerball ticket.

She can't give consent for her own medical procedure, run for office, serve on a jury, rent a hotel room, apply for a credit card or open a checking account without consent.

But thanks to the FDA, she can walk into a pharmacy and buy a morning-after pill without anyone's consent or notification.

In Minnesota, the DFL is busy trying to tell parents the exact height and weight specifications that their children must meet to legally ride in a car without a booster seat, yet nationally Democrats are telling parents the drugs their children buy at a pharmacy, let alone their behavior the night before, are none of the parents damn business.

If they're in school, they can't even have a Tylenol without a parent's written consent.

Yet more human sacrifice placed upon the altar of abortion.

Good point. A 17 year old can be strip searched by the school nurse for an ibuprofen.
