In September 2012, New York City began telling the public it was handing out various methods of “emergency” birth control to girls in thirteen high schools, including the morning after pill which is said to “block” pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of the egg and sperm doing its thing. At the time, they reported 567 sexually active girls had received what they termed “Plan B.” The City Fathers lied. The actual number of schools handing out contraceptives to high school girls was 40 separate “school-based health centers” and tens of thousands of doses since 2009 – not beginning in 2012. It took a Freedom of Information Act request to learn the truth:
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.
Birth control pills,” intrauterine devices and hormone-delivering injections and Patch and NuvaRing” are also freely dispensed but are not included in the above members.
Handouts of birth-control packets rose from 6,027 in 2009-10 to 10,462 last year. Depo-Provera injections rose from 1,213 to 2,117. Staffers also insert plastic IUDs in the uterus, where they can remain for years.
Send your daughter off to school and she comes home with something plastic inserted by a school “staffer,” or hormones injected by someone other than the doctor you choose for your child. What a nightmare for parents. The nightmare will come for the girls when the health consequences of playing God are revealed in future years – they always are, you know. All of this loving care is courtesy of New York taxpayers. Read about Mona Davids, the founder of the New York City Parents Union here, here’s a snippet:
In May, 2012, Mona founded the New York City Parents Union to fight for the rights of all parents in public school system. The New York City Parents Union announced it’s birth by filing a lawsuit against the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) to halt botched Community Education Council elections. Parents and elected officials pleaded for weeks with the NYCDOE to redo the elections – to no avail. Upon receiving court papers from the New York City Parents Union, the DOE immediately halted the elections and negotiated with Mona to restart the elections and properly notify parents there was an election occurring and how they may vote for their parent leaders.
In New York City, you can force a lot of things, but you can’t force Mayor Michael Bloomberg to tell the truth or to protect your rights to your child’s care.
