"Less than 10% of U.S. girls start to menstruate before 11 years of age"


Menarche at 7 or 8 is not common.



And....that means what, exactly? Because it's "uncommon" we should still have them carry a baby to term? Proof was posted that it does happen. What if it was your six year old daughter?

Just like Aiken. If it's "uncommon" let those unlucky few suffer, why even consider them at all?

I'd rather have my educated doctor, working with me, make decisions in cases that affect my life, my children's lives rather than these cruel, mean-spirited STUPID old white men thousands of miles away issuing a blanket edit that affects the rest of my life, possibly my child's life.

Republicans need to get out of our bedrooms and hospital rooms. NOW!
