Let’s just hope the kids aren’t have a post-coital smoke. Then Mike Bloomberg would barge in and snuff it out.
Sixteen and pregnant? There’s an app for that.
The Bloomberg administration has launched an app intended to reduce teen pregnancy called “Teens in NYC Protection+” that provides a wealth of health data for kids who are — or are thinking about becoming — sexually active, The Post has learned.
Information about everything from free clinics for HIV and STD testing to receiving condoms and emergency contraception is just a touch away on a smartphone.
The Health Department has yet to publicly announce the app. But the information has been available on the nyc.gov Web site, which has a special section dedicated to teens.
Parents who visit the site are in for a surprising lesson about state law.
“Teens in New York state have a legal right to get sexual-health services without the permission of parents, guardians, boyfriends, girlfriends, relatives or anyone else,” the site advises.
By comparison, a teen is not allowed to go on a school trip without parental consent.
Parents would probably prefer their kids can read, but that’s apparently not on Bloomberg’s agenda.
