*School officials in Provincetown, Mass., recently adopted a policy to make condoms available to elementary and high school students beginning this fall.
The new policy requires school nurses to supply the contraceptive if a student asks for it.
With each free condom, students will receive counseling, including information on abstinence. But parents will not be informed and cannot ask the school not to provide condoms to their child.
Kris Mineau, President, Massachusetts Family Institute, called the new policy “radical” and “absurd.”
“Making condoms available to first graders bullies parents to submit to an agenda that promotes sexual promiscuity to innocent children at their most vulnerable age,” Mineau said in a statement.
The policy states that the Provincetown schools do not approve of sexual activity by students. Still, residents are not uncomfortable with it.
