Meet Bloomberg | Contraceptives

The bad news is there’s still an awful lot of girls who get pregnant at a very early age.

— Michael Bloomberg, defending his plan to give students the “morning after pill,” Sept. 24, 2002

Bloomberg's Stealth War on Teen Pregnancy

It’s called CATCH, Connecting Adolescents To Comprehensive Healthcare. Began in January 2011, New York City’s pregnancy prevention program allowed for the distribution of condoms and birth control pills — including the Plan B “morning-after pill” — at school. Mona Davids, president of the New York City Parents Union blasted Bloomberg for overreach and noted that teens couldn’t get an aspirin in school without informed consent, but could get the morning-after pill. While the program enabled parents to opt out by signing and returning a form to the school, the reality was that very few parents ever saw the letter. The program continued for more than a year before receiving media attention and, when asked about, Bloomberg dismissed the concerned with, "We've been doing this for a long time. There just isn't any big news story."
