Here's another example of New York leading the country in progressivism as our governor proudly trumpets we do so well here in the Empire State.
About 50 schools in The Big Apple are dispensing Plan B to students, no parental approval necessary unless a parent is fortunate enough to receive an opt-out notice from the school as given to the parent by their child. The article is a mish-mash of sketchy background information and quotes by teen-age girls who have no idea what they're talking about.
This article, a slightly more balanced coverage of the issue, calls the distribution of Plan B Bloomberg's "stealth war" on teenage pregnancy. It's actually more like Bloomberg's stealth war on young, uninformed females from lower socio-economic backgrounds. What does it matter to the mayor if 16 year old girls from the Bronx are sexually active and then ingest high levels of hormones to prevent their 'unwanted pregnancy?' At least he doesn't have to get either his heart or hands dirty by actually caring about the girls and what they're doing. Give 'em a pill and call it a day. I've already written about this as stealth population control here.
