I try not to gossip.. really I do! But when the whispers of the neighborhood turns out to be an alarming fact that you need to guard your family against then that is not necessarily gossip, is it. Apparently there is a sex offender living in our budding subdivision ... listed on the MO Sex Offender list. When I first heard I asked well.. what kind.. just because someone is on that list doesn't mean they are a horrific threat.. people can get on that list just for peeing in a bush. But this is no light offender, he has done prison time for sodomizing and sexual acts with a 12yrd girl! The mommy in me and the once abused little girl in me is appalled and trying to figure out how to process this information. I have three very friendly daughters, who I almost never let out of my sight, non the less still knowing this info leaves me torn. As a Christian I don't want to judge people I have never met, this happen over 10 yrs ago and I don't know this man and if he has changed his life but on the other hand sex offenders are notorious to be repeat predators. How wrong would it be to drive past this house with my girls and point it out.. see this house.. stay away from it and the people who live there.. someone there has been known to hurt little girls like you?
Has anyone else been threw this.. found out a sex offender lives in your neighborhood? What did you do with that knowledge?
I have to bring two news headlines into my thought processes on this and express my never ending disgust and anger with Planned Parenthood. The first story is about a girl who is now suing PP in OH for their look the other way policies. In 2004 when she was 16 and brought in by force for an abortion by her father who had been molesting her since she was 13, she had told them of the abuse but they didn't do anything to help her, or report it to any authorities as by law they were supposed to. It took the girl two more years to get the courage to tell a coach about the abuse and get out of the situation but if PP had reported it earlier she could have been saved from it sooner. The second story, just as relevant and showing PP's habitual pattern of putting profits above children's welfare is about who they at the time thought was a 15yrd girl brought in by her 23 yrd boyfriend for an abortion. They told her they would have to report them if she was 15 but if she "picked a date" that worked.. well then there was no problem...ie telling her to lie about her age so they wouldn't have to be responsible and report statutory rape to authorities, as is the law. As it turns out the girl was really 18 with a hidden camera that recorded the conversation and it ended up on YouTube. Ofcourse Planned Parenthood is now suing her and forced her to take the clip down and want her to hand over the tapes (yes she did break the law because in CA it is illiagle to tape a conversation that both parties do not know is being recorded.. still the information does not change.. it happen and they can't hide that).
So what if one of my daughters was in a situation where she was being abused, say by the friendly neighborhood sex offender..and he brought her to a Planned Parenthood for an abortion to COVER UP the crime, it would never get reported.. they would take the money and look the other frick-in way!! Just one of MANY examples of how the abortion industry puts profits above girls and women's welfare and health. And YOU America allow this to go on with your tax money that goes to Planned Parenthood and your apathy to this issue.. "it's not my issue, its not my choice, it doesn't effect me"
Hopefully that sinario would never happen to one of my children, by God's protection and grace and because Missouri has a law where it requires a parent's consent and bans people taking children across state lines for an abortion that don't have that law. But what if... what if I didn't live in a state that has that law.. what if the law got over turn.. what if the clinic just simply doesn't FOLLOW the Law.. we can see patterns where they currently don't respect State and Federal Laws because it does effect their bottom fiscal line. What If... it was your daughter?
