Should schools be allowed to distribute birth control without informing and getting permission from parents?

Don't know -- Teen pregnancy is a problem, but is this a school issue?

Yes -- Kids need to know they can access birth control without fear.

No -- This is a parent's responsibility, not a 'nanny state's.'

It’s NYC where kids are encouraged to have sex with a “sex positive” curriculum. Starting at 11. No opt outs.

I’m assuming that there is a sex age law up in NY city.

Now if the school is helping kids to have sex or even know they are then is it not the schools resonsibility to report the breaking of a law and if not then are they not an accomplace?

Also it seems the kooks have been on the poll

Well...I could probably be OK with it so long as the govt also let them buy booze and cigarettes at the same age, if the govt was willing to draft them, let them vote, and leave home to make their own way at that age, if they had to file income taxes at that age, and if I wasn't being "allowed" to carry them on my insurance 'till they were fifteen or so years older.

Then, maybe.

So, who will be responsible if Plan B backfires and the girl dies? Will the school fess up that they handed the girl the medication that killed her? And who will be responsible for the medical care if she gets physically messed up but still lived through it?

Chances are the parents will get the blame and the bill, but will have no recourse to sue anyone for the death and/or bodily harm of their daughter.

It is unbelievable how far America has fallen.
When I was in high school, I barely knew what a condom was, and the only way they were sold was from under the counter of the pharmacy, and maybe some vending machines in sleazy gas station bathrooms.
I guess kid sex is now as common as kissing at a drive-in movie back in the 60s.
OK, I know that I a member of the old fart crowd.

UNBELIEVABLE. You can't send your kid to school with freakin' cough drops --- even the UNMEDICATED kind! -- without violating zero tolerance. But hey, hand our daughters chemical agents that mess with their hormones -- not a problem!

A 14 year old girl in NYC can get the morning after pill to poison any fertilized eggs in her body, but she can’t legally buy a 20-ounce soda to wash the pill down.

I thought schools couldn’t even hand out aspirins anymore, and now they’re handing out morning after pills to high school students without parental permission? Un-freaking-believable.

"Now if the school is helping kids to have sex or even know they are..."

They're probably handing out the morning-after pills to the girls so they can cover up the fact that they were impregnated by one of the teachers.

you know what I wuld not be surrpised.

To tell a 13 year old girl it;s alright to have sex which is breaking the law and then tell her to kill the child because she can;t respect herself shows how social issues are important and how this cuntry is going to crap.

Surely the school is breaking the law by doing this as the girl who has sex is breaking the law and this is aiding

The program will come to a screeching halt once the lawsuits start getting filed over the pill's side effects.

Find it hard to believe that there are so many Yes votes. Would be interesting to see more info on who voted yes, perhaps the age of voters and whether or not they had kids.

Not only NO, but HELL NO! Birth control pills are a very potent medication, and schools have no business providing them, especially without parental consent.

Used to be a school couldn't even give a child an aspirin or tylenol without the consent of a parent!

I wonder how long it will be before the first lawsuit for a girl getting pregnant while taking the birth control provided her by the school.

Just tell your daughters that BCPs make you fat. They do mess with hormones, and lots of women gain weight, sometimes a lot, when they take them. The kids are so afraid of getting fat that they may think twice about the whole deal, including the premarital sex.

These results are absolutely shocking to me. Kids don’t need to know that they can get BC “without fear.” They need to know that they’re too damn young to be bonking each other. Hang all the teachers who preach sex to our kids at grade- and high-school age. This is incredibly evil and nasty. Children’s bodies and minds are not ready for mature activities, and many of them will be emotionally messed up for life.

Kids need to fear a lot of things. Childhood and teenaged fear keeps a lot of them out of trouble and danger.

Don’t know — Teen pregnancy is a problem, but is this a school issue? 2.15% (2,217 votes)

Yes — Kids need to know they can access birth control without fear. 69.14% (71,257 votes) Who the hell are these people? They’re all nuttier than fruitcakes.

No — This is a parent’s responsibility, not a ‘nanny state’s.’ 28.71% (29,587 votes)

Total Votes: 103,061 <— that “1” is my vote NO!

69.38 to 28.39 Yes? On Fox?! Either something *really* stinks or the DUmmies are in high gear. When I was in school...dang. I cringe just thinking about what my mom would have done. Loudly. Or my friends’ parents.

What is *wrong* with these parents that they treat their kids like some kind of fashion accessory or an afterthought? This is sad.
