Sonia Coreas date: January 5 2013 Should teenage girls be allowed to get birth control without parents’ consent? Many opinions have surged from the public after, many teen girls have become mothers at a young age due to lack of information and resources available. Even though we count with many prevention options not all of them are at reach of young girls hands. We have a lot of known resources for example female condoms and also male the issue is that not all girls are able to have some of those preventive Options. Why? Well because most girls need their parents’ consent in order to do so, for girls it would be better to receive their parent’s consent because they would have their parents help in life taking decision. Some girls can use birth control pills but that is not at a 100% reach of teenage girls. Do you think or even ask yourself if teen pregnancy has increased due to all the above reasons? The answer is yes teenage girls should be able to receive talk about sex and pregnancy prevention in their school. Why? Well if schools started to do that it would be help for girls to understand the risks of getting pregnant and how it can change your life in a matter of months. I took the time to interview two of my cousins who got pregnant in their teenage years “it wasn’t easy they both said.” The first girl I interviewed said she got pregnant at the age of 16 she became a single mother also she said that if she would of known more about the difficulties it brought to her she would of never gotten pregnant at such a young age.
