Growing Pains in “The State”
It would seem America's Nanny Mayor is at it again in New York City...
Plan B has become Plan A in the Bloomberg administration’s stealth war on teen pregnancy.
Handouts of the “morning-after pill” to sexually active students have skyrocketed under an unpublicized project in which health centers in public schools offer girls a full menu of free birth-control drugs and devices, records obtained by The Post show.
Last September, the city revealed it had started giving out Plan B and other birth control in the nurses’ offices of 13 high schools. At the time, officials said 567 girls had gotten Plan B.
But the birth-control blitz was much bigger than the city had acknowledged. About 40 separate “school-based health centers” doled out 12,721 doses of Plan B in 2011-12, up from 10,720 in 2010-11 and 5,039 in 2009-10, according to the newly released data.
About 22,400 students sought reproductive care from January 2009 through last school year, records show. Under state law, minors don’t need parental OKs to get contraceptives.
Now, I wager this is not really too much of a problem for those parents who agree with The State paying for (cradle to grave) and raising their children for them. However, it is not going over so easily with others...
The revelations stunned Mona Davids, president of the NYC Parents Union, whose 14-year-old attends a Manhattan high school.
“I’m in shock,” she said. “What gives the mayor the right to decide, without adequate notice, to give our children drugs that will impact their bodies and their psyches? He has purposely kept the public and parents in the dark with his agenda.”
Davids, who is black, noted that most school-based health centers are in poor neighborhoods.
“This was population control on blacks and Latinos without our knowledge,” she said.
NOW you're getting it, Ms. Davids! Go look up the truth about Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood. And then ask yourself 'why' the left/dems love her and Planned Parenthood and abortion so much, all the while locking in blacks and Hispanics into their voting block for generations. New York City's abortion rate is double the national average.
Indeed, according to the statistics, non-Hispanic Blacks had a 59.8 percent abortion rate; Hispanics (41.3 percent rate); Asians (22.7 percent); and non-Hispanic Whites (20.4 percent) Unmarried women accounted for a whopping 84 percent of abortions in 2009.
