Promiscuity makes the headlines

Couldn’t resist putting a song about promiscuity in here…

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice) wants to allow women under the age of 25, including girls under 16, to pre-order and obtain the morning-after pill. The Health Secretary, Hunt,  voiced concerns that there is little evidence the move would help reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies and it might lead to higher levels of sexually transmitted diseases.

Roger Goss, from Patient Concern, told the Daily Telegraph of the Nice announcement: “It seems like a way of promoting promiscuity.”

Now the Deputy Prime Minister, Clegg, has waded in with this comment: “This is lifting a lid on a really fundamental attitude to women. Women shouldn’t be told we are not going to give you the freedom to buy something from a chemist because you think you might need it because otherwise we don’t trust how you will behave sexually. It is sort of Victorian. It is worse than that. It is a sort of medieval approach to women. That is why I am angry as I am on behalf of women.”

Which side of the fence do you fall on?
