Citizens of the U.K. are only a little more "advanced" than we Americans in the surrender to government workers such little things as freedom, moral vision, and parental responsibility. Here's the Daily Mail story about how thousands of 13-year old girls have been given the morning-after pill without parents' consent or even knowledge.
The results? Well, besides the preborn children destroyed by the abortifacient drugs, the policies of giving out sex information and "equipment" to minors without any parental involvement have contributed to more fornication among youth, a subsequent (and drastic) rise in STDs, and further breakdown of family communication. Ah, the Welfare State -- where no one's genuine welfare is served.
