Soon-To-Fired Academic

Looks like someone has been missing out on his Kool Aid ration:

Expanding family planning services has had little impact on teenage pregnancy rates, research suggests.
A study by a Nottingham economist says providing extra clinics may even lead to increase in rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Professor David Patton, was examining how people behave with a "safety net".

He suggested knowing there was easier access to the morning after pill and treatment for STIs may encourage teenagers to take more risks.

Say it ain't so ? You mean it's not a good idea for the government to encourage people to drive everywhere at 200 mph providing they've got airbags ? Nada Sierra, comrades.
