We have seen the future, and it sucks.

UK: Morning-after pill handout causes rise in teenage sexual disease, study finds

30th January 2011

Read it.

A government scheme to give teenagers the morning-after pill free of charge at pharmacies in a bid to cut down on unwanted pregnancies has led to a rise in sexually transmitted diseases, research shows.

A study has found that the policy simply encouraged young people to have unprotected sex and had failed to cut down the number of under-age pregnancies.

My, what a surprise. Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised.

What is it about being in government that makes people stupid and short-sighted? Is it that much effort to think something through?
