Saw this on Fox News this AM while at the grindstone and thought to myself “WTF?” Seems this middle school in Maine wants to be able to pass out birth control, to include the pill, to the kiddies. Now, I am not a medico that specializes in the health and welfare of the fairer sex, nor do I play one on TV. I didn’t even stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but I know enough to know that passing out “The Pill” to 11 year old little girls with out a parents/legal guardians permission is not a real good idea. In fact, it falls into that category not “What were they thinking?” but “Were they even thinking?”
Now, I know that just passing out a birth control pills to little girls can get a bit dicey. If they are not carefully monitored, the pill can actually do quite a bit of damage as each individual has different needs when it comes to contraception. (Advantage of having a family member that worked in the medical biz, both family practice and med school.)
If SIT can’t even get an aspirin, why should his girlfriend be able to get a birth control pill?
Oh, BTW they had some dimocratic political hack on spouting the good this will do. What in the name of all that is Holy is wrong with teaching abstinence?
