NYC schools give out morning-after pills to students — without telling parents

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.

    At least they’re not sterilizing them. That is one of the other options of Obamacare. Also needs no parental notification or consent.

    I find this to be despicable. Kids can’t bring in aspirin, but they can have birth control and abortion pills w/o the consent of parents. I see this as a very real affront to parental control over their children and the schools have no business whatsoever in this kind of thing. Besides birth control pills can cause blood clots in some women, that is a proven fact. So what happens when a girl has a DVT and dies? Or has an allergic reaction to one of these drugs.

    I’m sure glad I don’t have school age children right now.
