NYC schools giving out tens of thousands of doses of the ‘morning-after pill’

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.

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.

Plan B, which can block pregnancy if taken up to 72 hours after sex, is just one weapon in the city Department of Health’s arsenal for its Reproductive Health Project, an internal report reveals.

    Libtard logic – kid with photo of gun – BAD, and gets suspended.

    Giving kids the morning after pill – GOOD.

    Bizarro World indeed.

    Whoa to u, oh earth and sea. For the devil sends the Beast with wrath, because he knows his time is short. Let he who have understanding recon the number of the Beast, for it is a human number, his number is six hundred and sixty six. The only way for the bad to win is to kill the good.

    Who did Mona Davids vote for? Is she pro-abortion? Did she side with Sandra Fluck or Rush Limbaugh? What does she have to say about welfare and the destruction of the black family?

    That’s what I thought.

    The libtards do realize that RU-486 has caused deaths, right? And I don’t mean the dead babies.

    Bloomsy doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Informed Consent laws.
    (you cannot obtain legal medical consent from a Minor)

    He’s also proving that to him there is no tomorrow,
    because if, no, WHEN the grave side effects of this medication become known, eg strokes or liver malfunction or something else,
    the uninformed victims’ lawsuits will absorb the entire City budget.

    By then Bloomsy will be in Bermuda, Davos, where?

    Okay, let me get this straight.

    A regular person needs to be licensed as a physician or a pharmacist before they can dispense drugs or medication. But the gov’t can order the schools to do this without any such license.

    Isn’t this a case of the gov’t violating their own laws?

    If you had ever worked in a restaurant, Babs, you’d know what the name of the drug means. Say it out loud…

    RU-486 = Are You For 86?

    (86 means “Take the item off the menu”)

    Are you for 86′ing last night’s spermatozoa?

    Wait… were you just joking? :evil:

    Too little too late. They should have given the pills to the Lib/Tard parents 12 to 17 years ago.
