School nurses handed out 12,721 doses of the Plan B One-Step “morning-after” pill in 2011-12, up from 10,720 in 2010-11 and 5,039 in 2009-10, the New York Post reports.
Mona Davids, president of the NYC Parents Union, was stunned by the report.
“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.”
Besides “emergency contraception,” about 40 school-based clinics have dispensed prescriptions for contraception, intrauterine devices and hormone-delivering injections, the Post reports.
Here's but a sampling of the warnings and precautions for the Plan B One-Step "morning-after" pill:
The most common adverse events (>10%) in the clinical trial for women receiving Plan B One-Step included heavier menstrual bleeding (30.9%), nausea (13.7%), lower abdominal pain (13.3%), fatigue (13.3%), and headache (10.3%).
Think of the parent who sees his/her daughter suffering from any or all of these symptoms and being oblivious to the likely cause.
Then think about the fact that the same guy passing out these Plan B pills like M&Ms at city schools is the guy who doesn't want your daughter to drink soda.
Progressive logic... is neither.
It's regressive stupidity.
