Contraception soon proposed in Scottish schools?

by Quentin Hurel - 2013.02.18

The Scottish Government has been called to provide emergency contraception in school. The Scottish Sexual Health Lead Clinicians Group has demanded in a written submission that condoms and morning after pills will be accessible in all secondary schools. Scotland has indeed a higher rate of teenage pregnancy than the most part of west Europe. If the Catholic Church has labelled this call as outrageous, reducing teenage pregnancy was already a crucial target for the Government. In this way, this proposition could be seriously envisaged in future.
