Definition of Insanity

"A supporter, Richard Verrier, said it's not enough to depend on parents to protect their children because there may be students who can't discuss things with their parents."

This is the reason that a Middle School has voted to provide 11 year old girls with birth control pills without the consent or knowledge of their parents.

As a teacher, I can't take my kids on a field trip to the zoo, give them an aspirin, get their ears pierced or give them tests on Mondays without their parents permission... yet, apparently, I could give them access to something that normally requires a prescription and is a controlled substance.

Despite the fact that the side effects of birth control are infertility, heart attack, stroke and possibly death...

Despite the fact that the side effects of sexual activity outside of marriage means death to the soul, severe psychological problems, low self-esteem and could result in self destructive behavior....

By all means, keep the parents out this. What do they know?
