13 NYC High Schools Offering Morning-After Pills, Birth Control to Students

Parents aren't notified when the children receive the contraceptives, but they can opt their children out of the program

The Department of Education is providing morning-after pills and other birth-control drugs to students at 13 city high schools. 

School nurse offices supplied with the contraceptives can dispense "Plan B" emergency contraception and other oral or injectable birth control to girls as young as 14 without telling their parents, unless the parents opt out of the program after receiving a school informational letter about the program.
