Awareness to minors on condoms, birth control pills – Posters at medical stores

Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Jan 22: State Drugs Control department has instructed district drug controllers to create awareness among minors about condoms and birth control pills. Action will be taken to display posters saying ‘No sale of condoms and birth control pills to minors, these medicines should not be used.’

State children’s rights commission had requested drug controller department to take action as condoms and birth control pills were found in the bags of many school going children. Accordingly, the drug controller department has taken the initiative.

In the circular that was sent to all district drug controllers it has been stated that action should be taken against any pharmacy if they were found selling condoms and birth control pills to children.

Giving clarification on the circular, state drug controller Bhagoji T Khanapoore said, “We have not prohibited the sale of condoms and birth control pills. Action has been initiated to prevent minors from accessing them. Medical shop personnel have been advised to create awareness among minors who approach their shops asking for condoms and birth control pills.”

Meanwhile, the French government has decided to distribute free condom to youth between 18 to 25 years of age to prevent unwanted pregnancies and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.

    Kindly note condoms are sold openly in malls and hence easily reach to children's below 18 age. We observe many of the shops in Mangalore like More, D-mart and other branded shops will sale these items even after banded by Government. Hence the trade licensing authority and Police department has to take stiff action against this

    What would you rather have? Kids using condoms and birth control pills? Or kids getting Pregnant and underage mothers discarding babies in black polythene bags in dustbins? Coz one thing is for sure, that Hormones are going to kick in and kids are going to have sex. It is for the BJP government to decide whether it wants Minors to have safe sex or unsafe sex?

    Rohith Shetty Mangalore.Just think these kids are going to school now .What do you think you will would do in their place?Think of enjoyment with Pills and condom with no end or first concentrate on your studies and seek a job ,plan your future first and think rest later?Everyone do want to enjoy life.When they do with pills and condoms it looks like ,there is no difference between animals and humans?should we not act with better thinkig and act more cautiously?With taking pills so early for girls ,their body reacts quite different ,and can cause cancer later ?or other diseases?Many times tablets and condom fail and can get pregnent ?Many try to abort .That again has also disadvantage .Sometimes abortion done not professionally loose their uterus?never they can get a child afterwards?

Parents should check and advice about it.Here children are not allowed to buy tablets without doctors rezept and examination.with Parents allowance till 18years old or even 17years.Have to explain what it is and what ones body reacts when taken by minors.They are harmons ,not chocolates.First of all concentrate on studies and your future ,not on sex and consequences .You have time later .without education is nothing.
