Teenage girls should be allowed to get birth control without parent consent because sometimes girls 17 and under don't want to admit they are having sex, which isn't right but if they want to prevent having a child at a young age it is better for them to continue sex with it then being to scared. Condoms are another form of birth control and using that can prevent a child and a STD. Whats your opinion?

they should be open with there parents and ask for help. they need to also be careful with their choices and given that they will be adults at the age of 18 they should pick their battles

Birth control should be legal, but not free.

Why have sex in the first place if you don't have birth control?

People say that it's fun, but roller coasters are also fun. Should they be legal to ride? Yes. Should the government force taxpayers to pay for the roller coaster ticket of those who couldn't afford it? No.

It's not even super expensive. 6 condoms can be bought for $5 and an IUD costs about $800/8 years of effectiveness, about 35 cents a day.

Birth control should be given free to any and all fertile females for the asking.
