English School Policy: Free Contraceptive Implants at Age 13

Written by Gary North on October 30, 2012

School nurses in England give injections  to girls as young as 13. This has been going on for three years.

The implants, which prevent pregnancy for up to three years by releasing hormones into the blood, are inserted into girls’ arms. The injections are effective for up to three months.

If the a girl refuses to let the nurse tell her parents, it is illegal for the nurse to tell her parents.

But what about parental rights? As one famous politician has said, “Are you serious?”

What do the injections do for sexually transmitted diseases? Subsidize them.

Then there is this. Sexual relations between unmarried children under age 16 is illegal? No matter. Free contraceptive injections do not encourage sexual promiscuity. That, at least, is the theory undergirding the policy of free contraceptives for 13-year-olds.

Some parents wanting an investigation are out of luck. There are often no records.”The number of girls given implants and jabs is likely to be higher as many trusts claimed they did not keep records or said releasing information would breach patient confidentiality.”

Then there are the free sexual health clinics. The girls can go there, too. These clinics are part of the National Health Service. They are not required to consult with parents.

Although teenage pregnancy rates in Britain have fallen to their lowest level since 1969, they are around twice as high as those in France and Germany and five times the rate in the Netherlands.

What is normal today would have been unthinkable in 1960.
What will 2030 bring?
STDs, I think.

  1. Population control???? A young girl with a STD may be unable to conceive when she reaches a stage where she desires a child. This action can only further the desire to reduce the world population to between 1/2 to 1 billion people. Note that is a 5-6 billion reduction in population. Who will live, and who will die????

  2. MythBustingCousin says:

    Simple – liberal/progressive intelligent, artistic, sexually diverse, thoughtful, open-minded, compassionate people will live. Greedy, conservative, corporate scum, capitalist pig, gun-toting idiot, tea-bagging, woman-hating, regressive, repulsive, stupid, ignorant, bigoted, religulous myth-loving, theocratic, right-wingers die. Result? VASTLY improved, more loving, tolerant world for all! Next question…

  3. No- the not so independent thinking sheep end up following their Stalin or Hitler. And eventually most of them will die, too.Talk about ignorant and hateful. I am sure you are right that a world without God is a better place…well unless it turns out, because of our weakness, we will be under an Islamist Dhimmitude. Oh , and they don't believe in equal rights OR tolerance for other religions or believe in gay rights (they just hang their homosexuals ). Wake up.

  4. wonderful idea. I am tired o fpaying the welfare and free medical for allrthese people/ Birth control is cheaoer than a lifetime of welfare and free medical i wish all those anti birth contrrol, pro unlimitersd population growth would pay for all the welfare and free medical that their desire for more people will require. Until they are willing to payfor it, they should stop encouraging it.

  5. Actually, it's the liberal, immoral sexual libertines who are contracepting themselves out of existence. It's the Muslims and the believing, conservative Christians who are the ones still having babies, and who will end up inheriting the earth.

  6. Texas Chris says:

    Once you accept that the state has the right to force its education on you and your children, you have accepted their ownership of you and your family. The only debate then is one of degrees. HOW MUCH of yourself, and your children, do you control?

  7. Sharon Jeanguenat says:

    And, when WE are gone, who's going to pay for all you lazy, do nothing, hate filled, closed minded liberals? Conservatives are the biggest part of those that pay income taxes. Hope you have fun starving!

  8. A better understanding that you will end up in Heaven or hell will lead you to choose your life-style.

  9. Well, MBC, I guess you summed up the left's position in a nutshell for all of us. Thanks.

  10. BarleyWheets says:

    If the government crap gave my kid a shot or medication without my knowledge and permission ..I would go break some fingers and make sure they weren't cabable of giving anyone else a shot. We can not allow the government to control our children !!

  11. Why then do blue states have higher incomes on average, contribute more to the Federal budget, receive less back from the Feds, and have greater levels of education achievement than red states? Frankly sharon, I don't think you know what you're taking about – demonstrating with your own ignorance the sorry state of conservative achievement relative to liberals. Don't believe me? Look it up, if you are able.

  12. Christ. If you a-holes are the only ones in the universe, who would <want> to exist?

  13. Backward and supersttious, ain'cha? Live your whole life in fear, don'cha?

  14. And you would go to jail for a very long time, allowing the government to control every last thing about you — down to when are where you crap. That makes sense to you, doesn't it?

  15. The US doesn't do anything remotely like provide contracteptives to teenagers through the schools. The result being that for all the cheap moralizing and hypocritical bible-thumping on this thread, the US has by far the highest teen pregnancy rate in the world. Explain.

  16. DebbieOhio912 says:

    What is your point? The last couple of comments are way off topic. I thought we were discussing 13 year old children getting birth control from the government without their parents' knowledge.

  17. DebbieOhio912 says:

    You'll find out all on your own, Nikki dear. By the way, it's spelled superstitious.

  18. DebbieOhio912 says:

    Sorry, I can't resist responding to you and your limited education. ("down to when are where you crap"). Are you from one of those super-intelligent high achieving blue states?

  19. DebbieOhio912 says:

    You aren't too tolerant, are you? I thought liberals were peace, love and why can't we all get along.
