NYC high schools giving students morning-after pills, other birth control, without telling parents

By

“The Department of Education is giving morning-after pills and other birth-control drugs to students at 13 high schools, The Post has learned.

School nurse offices stocked with the contraceptives can dispense “Plan B” emergency contraception and other oral or injectable birth control to girls without telling their parents — unless parents opt out after getting a school informational letter about the new program.

CATCH — Connecting Adolescents To Comprehensive Health — is part of a citywide attack against the epidemic of teen pregnancy, which spurs many girls — most of them poor — to drop out of school.”

    I would love to know what legal authority CATCH has to dispense these medications without a prescription to girls under age 18.

    Under DEA rules, Plan B is still a controlled substance, even though available over the counter to adults.

    Both Reclipsen and Repo-Provera are prescription medications.

    Doesn’t this program violate federal law, dispensing drugs without a prescription from a medical professional holding a valid DEA number? Where’s the loophole?
