The procedure was carried out in Southampton, Hants, as part of a government initiative to drive down teenage pregnancies.

As many as nine secondary schools in the city are thought to have been involved.

But it has caused a backlash from parents who weren't aware that their daughters had been fitted with the 4cm device, which sits under the skin.

It is currently unknown exactly how many youngsters have taken part in the scheme.

How does government instill morals- when folks like Newt are winning votes :???:

Government and the current new Republican party should learn that you can't legislate morality- or their version of "family values"- especially when they have the folks preaching it that can't follow the walk they talk ...

I agree... having lived in the UK for several years, it appears you can get a cheque for about anything except work..
and those cheques have promoted a derelict lifestyle with teen pregnancy being just another way to get more benefits.

but you can't convince a liberal that ending the money that promotes the lifestyle is easier then adding more government programs...
