Plan B might be an option for middle school students if there is ever a Quinn administration.

While Christine Quinn was accepting the endorsement of the Planned Parenthood of New York City Political Committee this afternoon, we decided to ask her about offering the morning after pill in high schools. She has expressed support for it in the past, but for the first time she says she is now open to the idea of offering it to even younger girls.

Quinn: This is a really important option we need to make accessible. I understand it can make some people uncomfortable. I understand that and parents have the ability to opt out if that’s their choice. We need to recognize the reality of what’s happening in children’s lives and give them what they need to make the right choices and protect themselves.

Reporter: So do you think it should be available in middle schools?

Quinn: I think that may become a reality. You would love it to be in a place where that wasn’t the reality of middle school, children’s lives. But we are going to have to look at this and if that is what the data shows us would be the most helpful that is what we will do.

Offering emergency contraception in schools is a program that started and expanded under Mayor Bloomberg. It’s now in more than 50 schools high schools.

According to a 2011 survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly one in four high school freshmen reported that they had had sex — 19.3 percent of all females. In 2011, 7 percent of all high school students reported they had had sex before the age of 13.

During the endorsement, Quinn promised to make sure students recieved “age appropriate” sexual education as well.

It comes as no surprise that Quinn, the only female in the mayor’s race, has cornered the endorsements of the city’s major women’s groups. Planned Parenthood is just the latest. It follows Emily’s List, NARAL Pro Choice New York and the National Organization for Women.

We also asked Planned Parenthood if they would be spending their own cash on independent expenditures for Quinn.

They didn’t rule that out either.
