Because good parenting is just too hard...

I'm not talking about the teenagers to whom the "birth control" is being provided.  I'm talking about their parents and families.  And the liberal society in which they are being raised.

Responsibility?  Accountability?  Those are too hard, too.  Besides, it's a status symbol to be pregnant at 14.  Gets you street cred...

CBS News) NEW YORK - New York City's Department of Education has begun offering "morning after" contraceptive pills to students in a pilot program at 13 of the city's high schools.
CBS Station WCBS reports that, in an effort to combat teen pregnancy, school nurse offices have been stocked with Plan B emergency contraception.
The pills are being made available under a new school program known as CATCH (Connecting Adolescents To Comprehensive Health), which is aimed at stemming teen pregnancy.
This is the first time the city's public schools have dispensed hormonal birth control and Plan B, and it may be a first nationwide, according to the New York Post.
According to the city's data, more than 7,000 residents get pregnant by the time they are 17 years old. More than half of those pregnancies are aborted, the Department of Health said.
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said she thinks the pilot program will help fight teen pregnancy.
"High school students are very sexually active and getting pregnant, so we don't have that luxury to think that they are too young to be engaged in conversations about contraception and sexual education," Quinn told WCBS.
The birth control will be available to students as young as 14 without parental notification.
The Department of Education has sent notes to parents alerting them about the new program and information on how to opt out. Just one to two percent of parents have opted out of the program, the DOE said.
New York City schools already distribute free condoms to students.

~~~~~
Only 1 to 2 percent of parents have objected to this program?  Children as young as 14?  Without parental notification?  Seriously?  Over half of the pregnancies end in abortion?  Do the parents know this?  Do they have to give their permission?
It's obvious that the parents don't care, which makes parental notification an exercise in futility anyway. 

I don't believe that you can "fix" the problem by enabling and perpetuating the problem.

"Here ya go kiddies.  Have some rubbers and birth control pills.  Now go ahead and get jiggy.  If the inevitable happens, we'll give you the morning after pill Plan B."   What could go wrong?

Wow.

Stay safe.

Miss Violet... Ever notice how it is always "personal" when my troll talks to me? I don't know what her problem is. I'm one of the nicest people she'll ever abuse from behind her curtain of anonymity. :)
