Breaking News Response to Teen Pregnancy

One Oregon high school has just approved (albeit narrowly) a measure to reduce its teen pregnancy rate (currently at least 14/300) by allowing the public health department to write prescriptions for birth control to students on-site. Students will not need parental consent to obtain a prescription; however, their parents *will* be notified once those prescriptions are filled.
