Maine Middle School Clinic Will Offer the Pill

A middle school in Portland, Maine made the controversial decision to offer free contraceptive pills at its in-school clinic.

Many are concerned that the action encourages sexual activity in children, reported the Associated Press as printed in the Washington Post. Students at the middle school are between the ages of 11 and 13.

Some parents are warily accepting of the idea. The New York Times quoted two mothers as saying that it's not good that 13-year-olds are having sex, but it does happen, and it should be safe.

The Associated Press story broke the news. It quoted a lot of official sources. The New York Times quoted more unofficial sources, like parents and students.
