Abstinence Spokeswoman Wins “Miss Illinois” Crown |
Erika Harold, a spokeswoman for Project Reality, the pioneer in abstinence education, won the Miss Illinois Pageant on June 28 and will compete in the Miss America pageant in September in Atlantic City. Miss Harold is a recent graduate of the University of Illinois-Champaign/Urbana, and has been accepted at five law schools for the fall semester. She will enroll at Harvard Law School after she completes her reign as Miss Illinois. What a wonderful role model Erika is for the millions of girls who will be watching this year’s Miss America Pageant and dreaming their own dreams of someday walking down the runway to the strains of “There she is, Miss America.”
The Committee voted 20-8 to send the bill to the floor for a vote next week, after which it will meet an uncertain fate in the Senate where the majority, including many RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) unfortunately prefer no restrictions on abortion practices whatsoever.
Furthermore, a minor who seeks contraceptive or abortion information is considered sexually active and therefore a victim of suspected child abuse. As such, according to the laws in all 50 states, her case must be reported to the proper authorities for further investigation.
Life Advocacy also calls attention to another very important aspect of the operation of Title X clinics, and that is the way they show the children how they can pay for the “services” they receive without involving their parents. One of the Title X rules says, “Unemancipated minors [children who live with their parents] who wish to receive services on a confidential basis must be considered on the basis of their own resources.” Since they have no resources of their own and are supported by their parents, we, the taxpayers are handed the bill.
