    On one level I can understand this, but under no circumstances can I see this making sense without parental or judicial permission. This is after all, medication which requires a prescription (my assumption).

    I agree with the program but i believe they need to let the parents know what is going on.

    Plan B does not require a prescription and is sold from BEHIND the counter by the Pharmacist. There are no tests performed, I don't know why the Pharmacist has to dispense them but thats how it was in 2006 anyway. I lived with a "call-girl" and if the clients condom broke, she would buy a Plan B the next morning. I think there were some side effects like feeling crappy.

    They sold for $25 so NYC is spending quite a bit on this. On the other hand, little Christina won't get preggers - that's probably a good thing.

    Because they're a heavy dose of a medication that can serious **** with your body and your head if you shouldn't be taking it . . . that's why it should be prescription only. Prescription = Dr's approval.

    Also - it just seems retarded as hell to have BC to prevent pregnancy - be the whole 9 yards but the EC pill is just no big whoop even though it ends a pregnancy if it's started

    I certainly hope that a pharmacist is the one dispensing it. I don't care if schools have a clinic or pharmacy that dispenses Plan B, but if someone is a minor their parents should be notified.

    If the parents are notified, that might discourage the use of the pill. Then, it's likely to get to a choice of an abortion or a 15 year old mother.

    It's a difficult call really.

    I want to agree with you but I suspect that Doctors will just take advantage (like they do with pain meds). They get paid to write a scrip so they write them. By the time you get an appointment, it may be too late anyway.

    I can't discuss the potential physical harm this program may cause, as I'm not a doctor. So, I am prepared to be convinced either way as regards physical harm.

    What I get from many of the posts here is that people feel violated as parents when their children have access to BC and EC without their knowledge. I don't think this is a medical issue; I think it's about schools empowering kids to make certain decisions about their futures without the parents' knowledge or consent.

    High schoolers are going to have sex, most of them. That sex will create many babies if no BC and/or EC is made available. Those babies and their teenaged parents will suffer blighted lives. The kids will be less likely to seek BC or EC at school or anywhere else if the parents will be notified and/or their consent sought.

    Those are the uncontested facts.

    Anyone who responded with some version of "sex outside marriage is a sin that should be punished by parenthood" just doesn't share even a rudimentary value system with me.

    The real hypocrisy, is that many schools have drug free policies,
    A student can be suspended for bringing an aspirin to school, even with a note.

    So - punish the ds that get caught doing it.

    Honestly - is that your concern? I'm concerned for overall health.
