Xmas in UK – FREE Morning after Pills: What are we encouraging?
Written December 5, 2011.
Health Care is FREE in UK - Only last week, government gave pregnant women the option of choosing a caesarean Section if they were afraid of pushing a baby out etc. This will cost about £1000 extra per person and the next big news for women this month, is to do with the emergency Contraception Pill.
★ツ A new scheme has been launched by BPAC British Pregnancy Advisory service, this week in UK, encouraging women to stock up on the "Morning After" Pill, over the festive season. Women can have access to this Emergency Contraception over the phone, so they can help prevent risks of unwanted pregnancies.
Women who are interested can register their details online and speak to a nurse over the phone. The form can be filled in at: www.santacomes.org.
a) Some people will get careless and think “after all, I can take the pill in the morning” forgetting that there is also the risk of Sexual Transmitted Diseases / HIV etc.
b) Teens might also feel the same way as above and lie about their age on the phone, to get the medicine – without their parents knowing.
Anyway, I wish everyone a Happy Festive Season... Just sharing my thoughts.
