Schools Give Free Morning-After Pills To Students Without Parental Consent
The program is called Connecting Adolescents To Comprehensive Health (CATCH), the first of its kind in the nation. If this works it could be coming to your neighborhood. A program in New York City public schools is allowing students to receive free morning-after pills and other birth control medication and parents might not know about it. Parents might be unaware their kids are participating in CATCH because students at 13 participating schools are given an opt-out letter that parents have to sign and return. The New York City Department of Education says only 1 to 2 percent of parents opted their kids out, reported the Post.The program is all about avoiding teen pregnancy.
Would you be alright with this program?
