Quebec sinks further into depravity

The province with the highest teen suicide rate, the most abortions, the least children and the most civil unions (non-married couples) has made it legal for physicians and nurses to distribute birth control to teens without parental consent. The justification is the prevention of "unwanted pregnancies." Of course, this doesn't come as a surprise, seeing that teen girls don't need parental consent to have an abortion either.

This is illogical for two reasons: first, it undermines legitimate parental authority over what prescriptions are given to their children and over their moral formation. Second, distribution of birth control undoubtedly leads to increased sexual activity, which leads to the spread of STDs.

"Progressive" indeed.
