New York City’s Teen Pregnancy Rate Plummeted After High Schools Expanded Access To Plan B

New York City’s Teen Pregnancy Rate Plummeted After High Schools Expanded Access To Plan B

The teen pregnancy rate in New York City dropped by 27 percent over the last decade, a statistic that city officials credit to teens’ expanded access to contraception.

The city’s health commissioner, Tom Farley, told the New York Daily News that the data shows two concurrent trends: more adolescents are choosing to use birth control, and more of them are also delaying sexual intercourse. That’s partly because New York is one of the 21 states that allows all minors to have access to contraceptive services — and two years ago, the public school system began a pilot program to provide Plan B to public school students in districts with high rates of unintended pregnancy:

The city has worked to make it easier for kids to get birth control — giving out condoms at schools and making birth control and the morning-after pill available in some school clinics, a sometimes controversial move.

Farley said the numbers show that strategy is working.

“It shows that when you make condoms and contraception available to teens, they don’t increase their likelihood of being sexually active. But they get the message that sex is risky,” he said. [...]

Teen pregnancy in the city is still higher than it is nationwide, but it has fallen at a sharper rate, officials said.

Despite the promising trends, health officials in the city note that there are still significant racial and geographic disparities among the teens who are getting pregnant. The Bronx has the highest rate of teen pregnancy in the country, and African-American teens in New York City have a much higher pregnancy rate than their white counterparts — 110.7 births for every 1,000 back girls, compared with 16 births for every 1,000 white girls. That trend is evident on a national level, too. Black and Latina women have the highest rates of unplanned pregnancy and, subsequently, the highest rates of abortion.

But the city’s school system is on the right track, since part of addressing the connection between poverty and teen pregnancy is increasing access to affordable birth control. Removing the cost barriers to contraception encourages low-income women to choose longer-lasting, more effective forms of birth control that lower their risk for unintended pregnancy. And increasing adolescents’ access to Plan B is particularly important since the Department of Health and Human Services requires women under the age of 17 to obtain a prescription for Plan B, an unnecessary extra step that is often a barrier preventing adolescents from accessing the contraception they need in a timely manner.

Despite right-wing fervor over Plan B, it is an extremely safe medication that does not actually induce abortion. The majority of parents whose children are enrolled in New York City’s public schools support the city’s initiative to expand access to this type of contraception.

But it isn't wrong.   It is the truth.


Sorry.




Quoting brookiecookie87:

See there you go again. Pointing out you are wrong is not controlling you-You understand that, right?

You understand that teenagers can drink more than 20 oz of soda, right? That alone makes the MEME wrong. You can find it funny. But it is wrong.

You also understand that the people who support the option for teenagers to have access to contraceptives are NOT all the same people who support the ban on 20 oz soda drinks. That alone makes the MEME wrong. You can find it funny. But it is wrong.

You understand the TOS doesn't determine if someone is true or not, right? Saying 2+3=11 is wrong. It is not against the TOS. But anyone with common sense knows it is wrong.

So again. You can find the meme funny. But it is wrong. No one told you that you cannot post it, or shouldn't post it. I am just pointing out it is wrong.


Quoting talia-mom:

But I am not wrong.   That is what your controlling mind can't get.

I did nothing wrong in posting the meme.  I posted what I wanted and that can't be wrong because it doesn't violate the TOS.  


Quoting brookiecookie87:


I agree. I never seen someone hold so tightly to being wrong.

To the point where they are willing to cry about being controlled-When nothing even remotely close was happening.

It was funny and rather amusing.

Quoting talia-mom:


Keep thinking that sweetheart.   It's cool.

I found it funny.  Nothing more and nothing less.

But harp, and harp, and harp.   It's cool with me.   This is simply amusing now.    Incredibly amusing.

Quoting brookiecookie87:


Pointing out you are wrong is having a tantrum?

It seems like you are back pedalling. Before you were talking about, "You are so controlling!!" Even though I -never- tried to control what you posted. Then you were suggesting  "Stop trying to control what I post!" Even though I -never- tried to control what you posted.

You were throwing a tantrum. I was sticking to the point of refuting your claim. There is a HUGE difference.

I just proved that it is wrong in multiple ways. The first and obvious one-Completely different topics/situations/circumstances. The second and equally as obvious one-A teenager can drink 20 oz's of soda. They can drink 66 oz's if they wanted.  They can drink as much soda as they can afford really.

So it is wrong. And you didn't like that I pointed it out and started crying about controling what is posted despite I never did that.

It is quite cute.

Quoting talia-mom:

But it isn't wrong.   You just don't like it and are now having a tantrum.

It is quite cute.


Quoting brookiecookie87:


Haha-You are the one crying.

It's not my fault you couldn't handle someone pointing out the faults in your MEME.

The topics are completely different. Your meme suggest that a teenager cannot drink 20 oz of Soda. But that is wrong they can. Nothing will stop them from buying a 2 Liter of soda and drinking 20 oz. Or 66 Oz's if they want.

Nothing will stop them from ordering two 12 oz drinks. or three 8 oz drinks. Or five 6 oz drinks (Depending on the size the sore sells).

So again. Your meme is wrong.

Quoting talia-mom:

But there aren't errors.

Deal with it or not.   You are awfully controlling.  But it amused me and your babyish tantrum doesn't do anything.


Quoting brookiecookie87:

Again. You do realize I never told you that you cannot post a Meme, Right? I never told you that you should not post a Meme, Right?

Take some responsibility for your actions. All I did was call you out on the Meme. That it offered no rebuttal, no counter argument, and was deflecting.

No where in that does it say, "Don't post it!". No where. Take some accountability for what you do.

if YOU want to control what gets posted, where everyone is nice to you and doesn't critize what you say or do because you cannot handle the responsibility of being accountable for what you post-Then you should creat your own board where you have to approve all post.

I didn't do anything wrong other than point out the errors in your MEME. That it has NOTHING to do with this topic.

You aren't in control of the direction people post, Sweetheart.

Quoting talia-mom:

You can post all you want from the dictionary.  It was funny to me, so I posted it.

If you want to control what gets posted, make your own board where you have to approve all posts.

I didn't do anything wrong other than point out something I find funny.  We trust these girls to take these pills without their parents' knowledge, but we don't trust them to buy a soda in the size they want.

You aren't in control of the direction people post sweetheart.

So you disagree that a teenager can buy 2, 12 oz soda's and drink 24 oz? Or buy a 2 liter and drink 66 oz?

Because they can. That alone proves the meme wrong.

The people who support access to contraceptives are not the same people who support the ban on 20 oz drinks. This alone proves the meme wrong.

You understand the TOS doesn't make the meme correct right? I have never seen the TOS say memes are always correct. Can you show me where it says this?

Just because you found the meme funny-Doesn't make it true. Just because I am pointing out what it is not true-Doesn't make me controlling.

So we should let these kids get pregnant and then tell them not to have abortions? And then complain when they have kids that they cannot take care of? And then cry about it when they need government help?

Or perhaps we can give them plan B. Put them on birth control (or give them condoms) and educate them about sex, the risk, and protection. So they can grow up, graduate high school, and get a foothold in adulthood before they are having kids?

Quoting yourspecialkid:

 They would not have needed Plan B if they had kept their pants up to begin with.  If people cannot control something as simple as a sexual impulse what else are they not going to be able to control?

Oh my you are passive aggressive. How old are you? My son is 9 and does the whole "I know you are but what am I?" Schtick. Cause he's 9. His brain isn't developed. He can't critically think yet. Has your frontal cortex not developed the ability to reason? 

Quoting talia-mom:

never said I disagreed they could buy multiples.   But they simply cannot buy a large soda now.

It's the truth. 

And yes, you are incredibly controlling of this thread.

Quoting brookiecookie87:

So you disagree that a teenager can buy 2, 12 oz soda's and drink 24 oz? Or buy a 2 liter and drink 66 oz?

Because they can. That alone proves the meme wrong.

The people who support access to contraceptives are not the same people who support the ban on 20 oz drinks. This alone proves the meme wrong.

You understand the TOS doesn't make the meme correct right? I have never seen the TOS say memes are always correct. Can you show me where it says this?

Just because you found the meme funny-Doesn't make it true. Just because I am pointing out what it is not true-Doesn't make me controlling.

The meme is wrong.

Sorry. 

Quoting talia-mom:

But it isn't wrong.   It is the truth.

Sorry.

Quoting brookiecookie87:

See there you go again. Pointing out you are wrong is not controlling you-You understand that, right?

You understand that teenagers can drink more than 20 oz of soda, right? That alone makes the MEME wrong. You can find it funny. But it is wrong.

You also understand that the people who support the option for teenagers to have access to contraceptives are NOT all the same people who support the ban on 20 oz soda drinks. That alone makes the MEME wrong. You can find it funny. But it is wrong.

You understand the TOS doesn't determine if someone is true or not, right? Saying 2+3=11 is wrong. It is not against the TOS. But anyone with common sense knows it is wrong.

So again. You can find the meme funny. But it is wrong. No one told you that you cannot post it, or shouldn't post it. I am just pointing out it is wrong. 

Quoting talia-mom:

But I am not wrong.   That is what your controlling mind can't get.

I did nothing wrong in posting the meme.  I posted what I wanted and that can't be wrong because it doesn't violate the TOS.
