Giving birth control to children redux

(CNSNews.com) - A conservative legal group demanded on Monday that a school district in Maine abandon its policy of distributing prescription contraceptives to students as young as 11 years old without parental consent or become the target of a lawsuit to have the policy struck down.

(I blogged about this school here.)

You don't have to be a "conservative" to recognize that giving children birth control devices without parental consent is just plain wrong. Even Hillary Clinton thinks that —at least!—parents should be involved. (Ah, what feasts we make of crumbs.)
