Mayor Bloomberg is Birth Controlling the New York Girls

Mona Davids, head of the NYC Parents Union has spoken out against Mayor Bloomberg’s birth control program for high schools in New York’s poorer neighborhoods.   Increasingly, the school health centers are handing out the morning after pill to sexually active students.  This year, 12,721 doses of Plan B  have been handed out, as well as numerous other forms of birth control, including intrauterine devices.  Says Ms. Davids, “I’m in shock. What gives the mayor the right to decide, without adequate notice, to give our children drugs that will impact their bodies and their psyches? He has purposely kept the public and parents in the dark with his agenda.”
NYC has spent 2.7 million dollars dispensing pills to the population which is least likely to use them as directed. 2117 Depo-Provera injections have been administered in 2012 alone to girls whose parents had inadequate or no notification. This drug is prominently associated with osteoporosis, particularly in teen users, because it blocks the usual bone deposition that occurs in those years of growth.
School officials refused to discuss this project with the New York Post, whose reporters found out through FOIA requests that Bloomberg’s birth control project is much larger than originally expected, expanding to 40 school based clinics.

NHS director dies after operation is cancelled four times at her own hospital | Mail Online.

Margaret Hutchon, former mayor, and former non executive board member of Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust,  got  the death panel decision- by-delay at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex.

Her followup stomach operation was postponed four times  (9 months), and her nutritional status was said to be so poor, she did not survive long after the operation finally took place.

At age 72, perhaps she was low priority, according to the complete lives system for allocation of scarce medical resources.


Clout St: Emanuel asks Illinois Supreme Court for emergency stay.

An appellate court actually booted Rahm Emanuel off of the ballot of the Chicago mayoral race!

He doesn’t meet the residency requirements, and a couple of judges in Illinois actually upheld the law:  Justice Thomas E. Hoffman and Justice Shelvin Louise Marie Hall.

(Will they receive dead Asian carp delivered by mail?  Inquiring minds want to know.)

With the ballots about to be printed,  Rahm has appealed to the Illinois Supreme Court to allow him to be included.
