The Decline of Common Sense

Another example of stupidity and hubris, cloaked in the name of “health” and “rights”:

The Portland, ME school board on Wednesday approved a measure allowing middle-school students to gain access to prescription birth control medications without notifying parents.

The proposal, from the Portland Division of Public Health, calls for the independently operated health care center at King Middle School to provide a variety of services to students, including immunizations and physical checkups in addition to birth-control medications and counseling for sexually transmitted diseases, said Lisa Belanger, an administrator for Portland’s student health centers.

One parent said “This is about giving kids who are sexually active the tools that they need.” These are 11-13 year olds!  Does this idiot, Richard Veilleux, think his child is ready for sex, the responsibility that goes along with it and its consequences?  Preposterous.
