Takes one to know one 

This letter to the editor appeared in the NZ Herald on May 8.

Morning-after Pill

It is disheartening that the Auckland District Health Board would rather spend $300,000 a year in giving free morning-after pills to teens rather than promote measures reducing teenage promiscuity.

Like compulsory HPV immunisation free pills is simply a way of stating to teens, 'we expect you to be sexually active and we like to make sure we cover the costs now rather than later'.

We need to acknowledge that unplanned pregnancies are not the real problem facing young girls.

More so, it is an ignorance of their own dignity and unique psychological make-up, which is always scarred by engaging in fleeting sexual relations.
