New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg hates big drinks and little babies.
This is the same guy who's constantly talking about protecting the children but he's willing to give young students a dangerous abortifacient carcinogen without parental notification? He should be charged with child endangerment. What could possibly give him the right to sneak dangerous pills to minors?
The Washington Times reports:
New York City schools are offering young girls a full menu of birth control options, free of parental counsel, thanks to an unpublicized project by Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration.
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. Officials refused to discuss the project.
