    I would not opt in on this one. I fully plan on getting my children bc when they think they are ready for sex, but I do not want my child to think the pill or plan b is sufficient bc. If they are going to be sexually active then I want them to know all the ways they could get STDs and not have the false sense of security that the pill can give them.

    Any decent nurse would do this as well. Personally though I do agree with being able as the mom to arm them with this information. However, I would have done this well before they are 14.

    I am legally responsible for my children until they are 18. If a child can not sign a paper until they are 18, you had better not give my child a prescription medication before they are 18 whether or not they want it.

    Mine is 12, we are already talking about it. I think schools need to stop doing the jobs that parents are supposed to do

    In an ideal world all parents would talk to their children. It's not an ideal world and many girls (and boys) do not get the conversation and education they need from their parents. Parents who think it is evil, unnecessary, don't have the time, don't make the time etc. There are also many parents who think they have the right info and they do not. Many kids do not have "safe" places to go and "safe" parents to ask them for help in protecting them. This benefits them. It benefits us as a society as well to allow young women to obtain birth control and not have an unintended pregnancy because they don't want to have that conversation with their parent(s) or caregivers.

    It is not yours or anyone else decision how someone raises their child. If a child is not being abused, you can not make a person parent their child in a certain way. You can't have it both ways. You can not have separation of church and state and say that no one can teach religion in school, and then at the same time take something that is against many people's religion and force you to let them give it to your child without their consent.

    I hear on debates all the time that are for Freedom of Religion, that school is for education not for forcing your views onto others. Why does that only apply to conservative views?

    This is not religiously based and it helps prevent things like teenage pregnancy and in turn helps abortion rates go down (do you not think this is okay?)

    They are not forcing these girls to go on BC they are offering it. If your daughter is old enough to have sex without consulting you she is old enough to decide if she wants BC. I think advising you that this could happen and allowing you to opt out is your option keeps your religious choice intact.

    As I already said, If the parents are given the choice to opt out of it, then I guess that it is ok. My response was in regards to the response to someone saying that the schools should get out of what is the parents job.

    I do not think someone under the age of 18 is old enough to be having sex. I understand it could happen anyway and I will talk to my children about that when I think the time is right, but I want to be the ones who talk to them.

    It's a hard one. Yes it's promoting safe sex but is it also promoting sex in general? Then again, safe sex is better.
