Should high schools be allowed to offer birth control for free to help prevent teenage pregnancy?
I think this would be beneficial. A lot of teens can't afford birth control or have any means of obtaining it themselves. It is good for educational purposes as well. The more that young people are exposed to birth control and disease prevention, the better off they are.
No, Birth Control Pills are a prescription only drug with some severe possible side effects--and a physician takes a lot of things into account before prescribing them.
A person should have a physical first before taking them. A school is not equipped to oversee this kind of program.
duffsmom, I agree. Everyone should consult with their doctor before going on BC pills - they're not right for everyone and can cause nasty side effects. However, in this case I was thinking of BC such as condoms or spermicide that most can use.
Oh strange - I immediately thought birth control pills. Other forms didn't even enter my mind--Brain Cramp! :-)
I honestly don't believe so. It is like saying it's ok if they have sex. If they want to have intercourse, they can pay for the condoms and pills.
