Should teens under 18 have more legal rights?

Posted by: Fanny

Teenagers have very little control over their lives. They can't make healthcare decisions, even when they have the mental ability do so. They can't get a job without a parent's permission and permission from the state based on a medical exam, they can't leave their home without their parent's permission or they will be considered a "runaway" and cops will arrest them, bring them home and put them in juvenile justice and anything they buy, even with their own money, can be taken from them by their parents at

Absolutely. We should stop treating them like 2nd class citizens.
