That's awesome. If there's any time in which parenthood should be properly planned (and delayed), it's high school.

It would be better if the nurse could provide those services already. This is a non-profit covering medical services that a public school should already be providing as part of comprehensive sex education. In a better world, I guess.

Even better: with parental permission, they should be vaccinating every kid for HPV that has confirmed medical insurance on file (Gardasil is expensive). They could program the 3-dose series right into their school schedule.

Everyone knows the only way to prevent teen pregnancy is the power of Christ our lord, and the black market trade in shame babies.

So I assume every girl is having abortions during recess? I mean, that's all Planned Parenthood does, right?

/Not intended to be a factual statement.

I think it is great too. I remember having to sneak my high school girlfriend to a PP office to get birth control. However, you have to think about infringing on the sensibilities of other groups of people, no matter how small, don't you? So while I personally think it is good, I think it opens up a can of worms. A group of kids cannot get together and pray in their spare time in school, but an organization that promotes abortion is okay? Devil's advocate and all.

When has anyone ever stopped a group of kids from getting together and praying during their spare time in school? Granted, that's what the theocrats will say about this, but it's never really happened.

You know how I know you're not very familiar with what PP actually does?

They don't 'promote' abortion, they provide it as a service to those who weren't smart enough to to use what they DO promote: birth control and safe sex. They also provide some basic healthcare in relation to the reproductive areas of the body - my personal experience going there was more positive than my OB-GYN is now (because that guy has a couple hundred pictures of babies he's delivered in the waiting room and it freaks me out).

Blah blah blah Im a liberal dumbass who cannot debate.

Million freakin times, I am 100% in favor of PP. This will offend some people greatly (dumbasses, but a large portion of the country are religious dumbasses). Now, put something that deeply offends you, like saying the pledge of allegiance, will you be all okay? You dumbass libs are so worried about offending anyone but the people you disagree with, and that is a double standard. You are weak.

Given government run education's lack of success in teaching actual academics I don't imagine they will be anymore successful in the planned parenthood/sex education area.

They have enough on their plate just getting 12th graders to be able to pass an 8th grade level math and 10th grade level reading exit exams without throwing more social engineer BS on top of it.

Do they only know bunny-style? Poor things. That's terrible! Tragic!

We really should institute a decent sex education program. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. And we could combat obesity with the increased physical fitness, too.

Perhaps the upper class could offer lessons on alternative uses for riding crops and tack.

Um...the point of the birth control is to prevent the trustafarians from planting their scions in the oven for a few years. That word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Says who? See You at the Pole was an annual event at my school and a friend of mine prayed before lunch every day. The "no prayer in school" line is total BS. It refers only to teachers leading the class in prayer.

The difference is planned parenthood is a public health organization not a religious one. Conservatives don't hate planned parenthood because they make abortion referrals, they hate planned parenthood because by providing contraception and family planned they give women control lover their lives. And women having control over their lives is exactly what conservatives do not want because it upsets their idea of what the pecking order should be.

In a nutshell conservatives could give two shi'its about abortion, they actually care about the status of women.

There are a couple of tolerably cute Congressmen and Senators, but I'd absolutely insist on use of condoms. I'm fond of both sausage and law, but there's no telling where that sausage has been!

I think it would be an unnecessary risk of arrest to try to do it at a school.

Executive or judicial branch? Meh. It depends. I once had a guy from the CIA help me break into my hotel room.....
