13 Year-Old Girls Given Contraceptive Inserts at School Without Their Parents Knowing

Coming to a school near you?

13 year-old girls were given contraceptive inserts at school in Great Britain without their parents knowing.
The Telegraph reported:

Girls as young as 13 have been fitted with contraceptive implants at school without their parents knowing.

The procedure was carried out in Southampton, Hants, as part of a government initiative to drive down teenage pregnancies.

As many as nine secondary schools in the city are thought to have been involved.

But it has caused a backlash from parents who weren’t aware that their daughters had been fitted with the 4cm device, which sits under the skin.

It is currently unknown exactly how many youngsters have taken part in the scheme.
