Another reason to homeschool - to protect your daughters

This happened in the UK, but I'm afraid the same attitude of  government knows best exists in the US and this may have already happened here.  Girls, 13, given contraceptive implants at school:

Girls as young as 13 have been fitted with contraceptive implants at school without their parents knowing.

The procedure was carried out in Southampton, Hants, as part of a government initiative to drive down teenage pregnancies.

As many as nine secondary schools in the city are thought to have been involved.

But it has caused a backlash from parents who weren't aware that their daughters had been fitted with the 4cm device, which sits under the skin.

It is currently unknown exactly how many youngsters have taken part in the scheme.

Yet another reason to homeschool.

It is mind boggling what government officials think they can and should do.
