- Mother says decision to keep parents in the dark was 'morally wrong'
- NHS Trust defends scheme saying it has cut teenage pregnancies.
The initiative in Southampton to combat teenage pregnancies was criticized by one mother who said it was morally wrong that her daughter had been given the implant between lessons.
The contraceptive implant Nexplanon is 4cm long and is inserted under the skin. A parent was outraged after it was implanted in her 13-year-old's arm
She said she was horrified that neither she nor her GP had been told her daughter had been given the 4cm device.
'I feel really angry about this. I agree that teaching teenagers about sexual health and contraception is very important but this is a step too far', she told the Southern Daily Echo.
How would you feel as a mother if your teenage daughter has been given the 4cm contraceptive device at school without your consent?
