Council Approves Birth Control Plan

By Bill O'Neil 

A controversial alternative birth control program for teens gets a green light from San Antonio's City Council.  

Nearly $1 million in federal cash will be used to pay for the program--which will inject or implant birth control alternatives in the teens or young women who take part. While the Council voted overwhelmingly to approve the program, District Ten's Mike Gallagher was still left with a number of questions.  

"I don't like to make a decision without all of the facts--and I just felt that we didn't have them with us" Gallagher told 550 KTSA News, wondering whether or not the program would ultimately put those who take part at risk. 

"And until we have a clear answer on something like that, I don't see how we can support it" Gallagher said.
