If your child wants to protect themselves whether it’s from getting pregnant or whatever it may be, why stop them. They are being responsible for their own actions and body. In conclusion, if a teen feels mature enough about making the decision to have sex they should be mature enough to be safe and responsible about it. Teens don’t feel comfortable asking their parents for these types of things so I think it’s good for birth control to be accessed without parent consent. It won’t only help to protect the teens, but it will help other heath issues to.
I believe that it is important that we make these contraceptives available for teens. I think it may be a good idea to have some form of birth control that is free for those who can’t afford it. Some clinics provide birth control to teens without the consent of a parent, this may be a good thing because many teens are afraid to talk to their parents about sex and birth control. Many teenagers today are very sexually active and take the risk that comes with sexual intercourse. Education is our number one source in getting sexual information out to the teenagers.
(3) Some people say that allowing teenagers to get contraceptives without first telling a parent encourages them to become sexually active and that requiring teenagers to tell their parents before they get birth control would stop sexual activity but research says teenagers don’t become sexually active if they can obtain contraceptives. Studies say making contraceptives available to teenagers does not increase sexual activity. (4) Requiring teens to tell a parent before they can obtain contraceptive doesn't reduce their sexual activity it will just put their health and lives at risk, if the child had to have permission from their parents to obtain contraceptives. It would just make them not want to use protection and have sex without it. (5) However taking away teenagers' access to contraceptives doesn't stop them from having sex, it just drives them away.
The questionable problems that arise from Comprehensive Sexual Education include promotion of teen sex, and the morality of schools, instead of parents, promoting and teaching sexual education. According to Jane Friedman’s report, teen pregnancy has significantly declined since 1991 (1). Right wing conservatives credit abstinence-only programs for this statistic and liberals believe it is their contraception program. “ The federal government only funds abstinence education, even though at least 75 percent of parents say they want teens to be taught about both abstinence and contraception” (1). Although abstinence would be a significantly better choice, it is important for teens to know the consequences of sexual intercourse.
Level 3 CYPW-SC Unit 62 Assignment- Understand the issues affecting young people in relation to sexual health and risk of pregnancy 1.1 Pregnancy- Teenage pregnancy is a serious social problem and a key inequality and social exclusion issue. Having children at a young age can damage young women's health and well-being and severely limit their education and career prospects. While individual young people can be competent parents, all the evidence shows that children born to teenagers are much more likely to experience a range of negative outcomes in later life. Children born to teenage parents are also much more likely, in time, to become teenage parents themselves. While the negative consequences of teenage pregnancy are felt most by young women and their children, it is important that strategies to reduce teenage pregnancy also impact on young men's attitudes and behavior.
By taking the decision out of the parent’s hand, the relationship is also affected as the child is no longer discussing what is going on in their life and freeze the lines of communications between parent and child. It encourages teens to have unprotected sex which leads to STD’s /STI’s It can lead teens to believing that getting pregnant will be ok and they will be able to turn to a Plan B pill. Females should have the option to be examined and advised on what their options are when it comes to the different types of birth control…There could be cases where the student could be allergic to some of the ingredients. Take into consideration, a pregnancy test is not administered before the school gives this pill…What if the teenager is already pregnant…This could lead to _________ *We need to say something about religion & something else about Birth control (not the pill) 1. If schools can’t give kids Aspirin or Motrin without informing the parents; then why should they be able to administer birth control without the parents
1. I do not think that aborting pregnancies that would result in a child born with a severe birth defect(s) should be permitted at any time in prenatal development. Parents who decide not to terminate the disabled fetus may actually come to love their disabled child, as the Brancas in the article, A Wrongful Birth. Many families do not realize that a disabled child can have just as much an impact as a child prodigy (Weil, 2006). A.J.’s parents are a testimonial to the impact a disabled child can have on the family.
Parents know they can’t stop their teens from having sex but being on birth control can decrease their teens’ chances of becoming pregnant. However, some teens believe that when
Peer pressure is so common in schools from middle school all the way to junior high. If parents aren’t able to help the next generation our future who will also be responsible for our future generations shouldn’t we give them a professional environment where they can actually learn how to be safe and handle the emotions and new feelings they get from puberty. Parents will argue against their sons or daughters to go take sex education. Fear is common that sex education will be a gate way to believing sex is ok. Sex education however provides different methods to prevent having STD’s or giving birth which happens without a basis of how to use protection.
Some argue that the need for birth control in this age is essential because people are concerned with the costs of raising a child. Furthermore, it is a woman’s choice whether or not to use birth control, and it is an effective way to help couples plan or prevent having children; however, others argue that birth control is unethical because it denies natural processes, interferes with the work of God, and defeats the basic purpose of sex, which is procreation. If people are ethically opposed to this controversial issue, should their tax dollars be utilized towards its implementation? Although, the women’s strike for equality was successful, the consumption of birth control still raised eyebrows. People face individual obstacles that are not always conducive to having and or
