i don't like schools or government giving out "free" contraceptives either.
1. they are not "free"
2. schools should be teaching not parenting
3. doing it without parents knowledge or consent abridges the parent's responsibility and roll as THE parent
4. how can we be sure the give isn't doing it to protect their own sexual advances to the receiver?
5. again there's no guarentee that the receiver is going to use it.
6. does the term "under age" mean anything in these situations?
7. yada yada
