The Boston Public School Committee met this week and voted 5-0 to make condoms available to all high school students.  The committee said they were already available in 19 high schools and this move expands the distribution to all 32 high schools. The new policy takes effect this fall.

Students will have to sit through a counseling session about safe sex before they can receive the condoms and parents will have a right to keep their children out of the program.

The Archdiocese of Boston issued a statement calling the condom distribution misguided, but has not organized any protest.
