The New York City Department of Education is distributing the “morning after pill”, which is the “plan b” emergency contraception pill. The pill will be available to girls as young as 14 years old without parental consent.
Parents have been notified about the CATCH pilot program and how their daughters can opt out of it.
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn says she supports the program because high school students are sexually active and getting pregnant.
The city says about 7,000 girls get pregnant by the time they reach the age of 17. It says more than half choose to get an abortion.
NYC schools already distribute free condoms to students.
This is what happens when parents are not teaching their children moral standards at home, you have the school’s administration and the school system dictating lifestyle choices for them.
