MEDIA ALERT: Charmaine on CNN's Headline News Public School Provides Pill at Puberty
Schools want to separate children
from all parental supervision and control.
And to help those children demonstrating
risky behaviors. A child’s affinity for victory
and military hardware would be suspect… A publicly funded middle school in Maine will be providing the contraceptive pill to pre-teens.
Staff Writer Kelley Bouchard, at the Blethen Maine Newspapers, reports
“The proposal would build on the King Student Health Center’s
practice of providing condoms as part of its reproductive health
program since it opened in 2000, said Lisa Belanger, a nurse
practitioner who oversees the city’s student health centers.
If the committee approves the King proposal, it would be the
first middle school in Maine to make a full range of
contraception available to some students in grades 6 to 8, said
Nancy Birkhimer, director of teen health programs for the Maine
Department of Health and Human Services. Most middle
schoolers are ages 11-13”
Charmaine will be debating a representative from SIECUS, the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States, on the wisdom of having a doctor prescribe pills and administer services without direct parental knowledge.
“Of 134 students who visited King’s health center during the
2006-07 school year, five students, or 4 percent, reported
having sexual intercourse, said Amanda Rowe, lead nurse in
Portland’s school health centers.
“This is a service that is totally needed,” Rowe said. “It’s about
very few kids, but they are kids who don’t have the same
opportunities and access as other students.”
The percentage of middle school students in Maine who
reported having sexual intercourse dropped from 23 percent in
1997 to 13 percent in 2005, according to the Maine Youth Risk
Charmaine will be on the side of the angels, as always. SIECUS, will be on, …well, the other side.
School bureaucrats have a clever way to get around parental notification, as the Blethen Maine Newspapers tell us,
“Contraception would be prescribed after a physical examination
by a physician or nurse practitioner, Belanger said.
Types of prescription birth control available through the health
centers include contraceptive pills, patches or injections, as well
as the morning-after pill. Diaphragms and IUDs are not usually
prescribed, she said.
Belanger said health center workers encourage students to tell
their parents about their health center experiences, but by law
they cannot compel students to do so or inform parents without
the student’s consent.”
Interview Scheduled for: 5pm ET hit-time
Topic: Birth Control for Middle Schoolers
NOTE: Live segment regarding Portland, ME school district giving contraceptives to middle schoolers.
A Maine middle school has decided that 11 year-olds should probably go on the pill.
Prescribe ‘the pill’ at middle school?
Student health officials say a broad contraceptive program is ‘totally needed.’

Mission: to provide the best in comprehensive education and caring support to transgendered individuals and those close to them.
There is nothing in the proposal that would prohibit sex-change operations. They will certainly be available under Hillary Clinton.
After she surrenders to the jihadists.
