“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….
…Parents at the 14 schools were sent letters informing them about CATCH. Parents may bar their kids from getting pregnancy tests or contraceptives if they sign and return an opt-out statement…
…’I don’ t want to be a young kid who gets pregnant and can’t find a job,’ one cautious freshman told The Post.
A 14-year-old pal agreed. ‘I would go to the nurse without telling my parents, and I would ask for help,’ she said….”
This is wrong on so many levels.
Thousands of New York City parents will never hear of this program because
(a) they do not pay attention to what their children’s schools are up to or better yet, what their children are doing in school;
(b) teenagers tend not to bring such notices home to their parents;
(c) the system for the most part encourages children not to be honest with their parents by enlisting such offensive agendas. H/t BULLRIGHT.
Moreover, if a student really has no interest in getting pregnant, she could always take the high road and abstain. The problem being that in these days and times, Progressives have commandeered control of our educational institutions and the minds of our young. Therefore, such an occurrence is highly unlikely unless parents aggressively wedge themselves in between student and institution.
So now, a Department of Health doctor’s note will get teenage girls attending 13 New York City public high schools Plan B emergency contraception, birth-control pills or Depo-Provera.
New York City public schools are officially in the business of influencing and expediting the murder of babies in the womb, i.e., genocide.
