Please allow the schools, all schools, to educate our children in reading, writing, math, and science and allow us the parents decided on the sex education and social behavior. In simple times the hardest decision was what dress to wear to the prom vs today the question could be who will wear it.
Royal condom plan helps Paris teens April 29, 2011 AROUND 160,000 teens in the Paris area now have access to a “Pass Santé Contraception”, a pack of sexual health and contraception vouchers.
The scheme by the Socialist-led Ile-de-France region is similar to one launched in 2009 by Socialist presidential hopeful Ségolène Royal.
The “pass” consists of six vouchers, delivered by the school nurse, allowing for doctor’s visits, medical tests and contraceptives. Young people will be able to make use of them anonymously.
The scheme is meant to make up for the fact that people under 18 do not have their own cartes vitales (for accessing state healthcare reimbursements) and need to tell their parents if they want to be reimbursed.
The fact many of them do not wish to discuss delicate sexual matters with their parents is thought to contribute to around 13,500 abortions for girls under 18 in France each year.
Ile-de-France president Jean-Paul Huchon, who launched the scheme in a Paris lycée, reassured parents that the measure would be “carefully regulated” and contraceptives would not be “given out like sweets”.
However according to parents’ federation Peep, which opposes the idea, it “excludes parents” and “discredits them as educators”.
