Pregnancies in girls under 18 in England and Wales have fallen to levels not seen since the early 1980s, according to new government figures.
A government spokesman blamed this on the ready availability of contraceptives, referring to press reports of pushers known as GPs and pharmacists supplying something known on the street as "the pill" or "the morning after pill".
"Consideration is being given to making them illegal", he added.

Nice :). If I may be so bold as to offer opinion.... Perhaps could use more 'angle' on the drug aspect, substituting 'availability of contraceptives' to 'availability of drugs and associated paraphernalia' for example?
Mind you, that is working on the assumption that it's the drug insinuation angle you are trying to put across lol. If not, ignore me :)
Potential for a fair bit of additional story-telling, perhaps expanding on the street slang of 'the pill' etc to include other things such as: J's, rubbers, Johnson slides, french letters et al, all of which are believed to belong to someone called Johnny. Or at least they are referred to as belonging to him....
Then of course there are caps, and diaphragms, although at this point it is unclear if the caps are related to the French letters, or if the latter refers merely to breathing apparatus.
As a punchline, you could always go for 'An alternative theory is that someone called Ann Summers has seemingly been proactively endorsing what we guess is a much cleaner method of post-coital cleaning up, bordering on OCD levels. All we know is that the activity is known as 'Anal'. As yet, we can't find anyone willing to discuss this.
Anyway... as I say, just my thoughts so feel free to disregard.Posted 6 years ago #
