Should 50 NYC high school be allowed to dispense "plan B" morning after pills to girls 14 and up.
FACT: More than 7,000 NYC 15-17 year old girls get pregent each year
FACT: More than two thirds end in abortions
FACT: Sex under the age of 16 (most states) is statutory rape
FACT: Plan B requires a prescription at the drug store if under 17
FACT: Carrying aspirin to school is a no no. Must be given to a nurse to dispense as other meds are by approval of parents and doctors.
The debate is about if schools should be allowed to offer/dispense prescription meds without a prescription?
Is the "morning after pill" a form of abortion
Does making this pill available "OK" sex
This debate is not about women's rights but rather about the protection and best interests of children. Thank You.
