(UK) Schools give morning after pill to 11-year-olds

Posted at the Telegraph.

America, meet your future, ...and prepare to meet your God... (Amos 4:12).

Thousands of girls as young as 11 can obtain the morning after pill at school without telling their parents, it was disclosed last night.

Sexual health clinics are being set up in secondary schools in England as part of a Government drive to cut teenage pregnancy.

Figures show that in some areas, up to half of schools now offer children a range of services, including free condoms, pregnancy kits and emergency contraception. One school has admitted handing out 345 morning after pills in the past four years.

In a new development, further education colleges have been issued with guidance recommending that they too set up specialist units to give advice to teenagers.

Last night, experts claimed the move had already helped slash teenage pregnancies.

This is the direction that America is heading with it's "comprehensive sex education" and promotion of contraception and abortion in government education. It breaks my heart to imagine what these young girls are going through and what they have to look forward to.
