NYC schools give out morning-after pills to students — without telling parents (+video)

The Department of Education is giving morning-after pills and other birth-control drugs to students at 13 high schools, The Post has learned.

School nurse offices stocked with the contraceptives can dispense “Plan B” emergency contraception and other oral or injectable birth control to girls without telling their parents — unless parents opt out after getting a school informational letter about the new program.

CATCH — Connecting Adolescents To Comprehensive Health — is part of a citywide attack against the epidemic of teen pregnancy, which spurs many girls — most of them poor — to drop out of school.

While Big Apple high schools have long supplied free condoms to sexually active teens, this is the first time city schools have dispensed hormonal birth control and Plan B, which can prevent pregnancy if taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex.

It might be a nationwide first as well. The National Association of School Nurses could cite no other school district supplying Plan B. Read more from this story HERE.

Here’s an NYC news report that provides additional detail about what the Department of Education is doing:

    This comes as no surprise. They already allow Abortion without parental consent, so naturally this would ensue. What are people doing to stop this abuse of Government power. Notice it is always in Black Neighborhoods that they give these Free Abortions and Free Morning After pills…Margaret Sanger’s work lives on. Eugenics as it’s worst.
