I was a little f*cker. If I could have had at age 12, I would have. Sure I knew all the birds and bees, and the consequences. Instead I waited till the ripe old age of 15, when a camp girlfriend finally gave up the unprotected goods. I learned the ins and outs of birth control from my girlfriend, now wife, in high school.

My first gross thought when I saw birth control for 9 year olds was that some sicko dads or uncles would be signing their kids up to protect themselves. Of course, in some places I guess junior high schools are rampant with and pregnancies, no abuse occuring. But elementary school, that's just wrong. Kids got serious problems if they are acting out at that young of an age.

This whole thing just screams of how f'd our kids could be without good parents.

I disagree with you in regards to this part of your statement. I was placed on the contraceptive pill when I was 12 to help with some medical issues. However it has had no bearing on my ability to have children. It can upset your cycle if you miss a pill yes, but that can happen even to an adult woman.

On the matter of these young girls being provided with BC I see it as the lesser of two evils. Do I think they should be engaging in ? No. Do you think the ones that will be taking the BC pills really care what any of us think they should be doing or NOT doing? No. I'd much rather them be given the opportuntiy to protect themselves against pregnancy at such a young age rather then them getting pregnant, draining the welfare system or even having to choose whether to have an abortion or not. Granted one would hope that they have been taught to have some self respect and not go throwing themselves around to risk getting pregnant. I believe that responsible parents should be educating their children about the dangers of (STDs, unplanned pregnancies, tainted reputation) but the sad truth is that there are a lot of parents out there that will not talk to their children about and see such talk as a taboo.

saying the new policy is aimed at a tiny number of sexually active students.

Oh please! If this was aimed for a small number of sexually active MIDDLE school students, they wouldn't be doing it in the first place.
Quote:
Students would need parental permission to use the city-run health center in the school, but they wouldn't have to tell them they were seeking birth control.

Gee... I wonder why that is...
Quote:
But Coyne said a physically mature, savvy 11-year-old could get the birth control once the permission slip to use the center is signed.

Quote:
Fifty-four percent of the students are part of the federal free lunch program, which is an indicator of poverty.

I don't even care to read the rest of the article. The free lunch program doesn't mean . Any one in school is qualified to get free lunch, just like anyone is qualified to recieve financial aid. It's all about filling out a form and adding numbers. Whoopti ****in doo!

I understand that that there are some GIRLS that have issues with starting their period super early and/or having a lot of problems controlling it so yes a birth control is the key. Now I pulled out a quote that said savvy girl can get it. I cannot imagine an 11 year old girl having and ask the school for birth control? Who is she sleeping with? Her 11 year olf boyfriend who has a 24/7? An older man? Because if that was the case then there are some serious problems.

I can't get all my thoughts together. But for a state who barely has any revenue flow is really wasting their money.

That is incorrect. NOT everyone qualifies for free lunches or financial aid. It's not an added benefit that people just don't take advantage of, it's only available for up to a certain income.

Wrong? Maybe. Incorrect? No.
Who write the forms? You? Or your boss who write your pay check?
There is a letter mailed out to people and all you do is fill it out and mail it in or turn it in... My parents made good money and I got free lunch! My mom did it because she wasn't going to give me money to eat lunch at school and I wasn't working and a little bit later, my parents got divorced and Daddy made the majority.. I had friends doing that all the time. It happens.

i understand your point that these are 11 year old children, they should be watching my little pony, and having slumber parties, and playing tea party.

but they arent.

they are f*cking little boys...and getting pregnant.

the 26 year old mothers of these 11 year old girls just cant handle being a grandmother yet....think about it for a minute...

Hit the nail on the head there bud! Blame it on society and the school system. You get to high school and they have nurseries at the school, special buses with baby seats, and a revised curriculim for the teenage mothers to prepare them for life (yeah, right).

They get credits for a period a day helping out with the babies.. I mean you loook around and say "how cool, Janie has 2 kids and gets to take home ec and spend two hours a day in the nursery, and the bus picks her up at her house"

Man. When I was in school, if a girl got prego she just kinda disappeared. "She had to go help take care of her ailing aunt" or something.

You're so right on this but then how would the mother get an education? Do you like the old system better than trying to help the mothers out? They did this so that they won't drop out and HOPEFULLY they won't get pregnant again and finish school.

Ha! If I would have played my cards right I could have been a great-grandma by now

I think it was Stuart Smalley who once said, "I'd like to make this world a better place for my children...but not my children's children, because I don't think kids should be having ."

More and more stupid happening in this country every day.

It's not a school's responsability to hand out medication to students. As for 11 yr olds taking birth control, some argue that it helps to regulate their cycles. Personally I'm against BC for teenagers. I feel that it gives them the impression that they're 'safe' as long as they're taking it. You can still end up with a pregnancy or worse yet some nasty STD.

It still requires parental permission. What is the problem? The amount of chemicals and hormones children are ingesting now days has severly haltered there bodies but, making contraceptives available with parental consent is a no no?
