The Pill in Your Pencil-Box

Filed under: Education,Interesting News,Politics — acepundit @ 6:01 pm

If your 11-year-old needs to be prescribed birth control at her middle school to prevent pregnancy you have failed as a parent. Miserably.

The rationale behind the Portland School Committee’s decision (by a vote of 7-2) to turn three middle school clinics into pharmacies for the promiscuous is because of the supposed “outbreak” of pregnancies among middle school girls.

While the figures are certainly troubling, I don’t think 17 pregnancies from three schools over a four-year period is that much of an epidemic. Certainly the thousands of other girls not getting knocked up are doing something right. And they didn’t need their school nurse to put them on birth control to do it either.
