Abortion Pills Given Out At New York City High Schools

Hey-what could possibly be wrong with that?

At one of my kids' schools, I had to fax over a physician's order so that they could give children's Ibuprofen. Yes-the over the counter medication.

And in NYC, they are giving out the morning after pill without parental knowledge or permission.

This is the part that bugs me:

"Parents at the 14 schools were sent letters informing them about CATCH. Parents may bar their kids from getting pregnancy tests or contraceptives if they sign and return an opt-out statement.
If they do not, schools can confidentially give the contraception without permission."

How much due diligence do you think there was-even a check list, or a phone call asking parents if they got the form?
