New York City public schools are trying to lower the number of girls who get pregnant by the time they reach age 17 by offering the controversial "morning-after pill" to teens without parental consent.

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports from New York City:

City schools already hand out condoms to teens, but 13 schools are now making birth control pills and the Plan B "morning-after" pill available to girls as young as 14, without parental consent.  

The New York City Health Department says, "The program aims to improve a situation that can have life-long consequences," but they can't tell us whether their program has reduced pregnancies or sexually transmitted diseases among teens.  Parents can opt out of the program, but very few have.
