Should your child have access to birth control at school? by

A school board in Portland, Maine approved a proposal last night giving students in middle school access to a range of birth control products.

Students must have written parental permission to be treated at the student health center, but what services they receive there can remain confidential if the student so chooses.

Condoms were previously available to students with permission to be treated, but now birth control prescriptions will also be available. Students must undergo a physical exam by a physician or a nurse practitioner before getting a prescription.

TELL US: What do you think about schools providing contraception to students?
