As Doug talked about two days ago, parents will not need to be notified. Doug does not think this is fair to all parents. Reproductive care is just too important for parents to remain out of the loop. For a child to get an inhaler in school, it requires the signature of a guardian. How can something as significant as birth control be prescribed without parental knowledge? Those in support of the decision say parents are not doing their job educating their kids or being available to discuss sex without repercussions. Does this describe you? Are your kids in the know about sex? Can your kids come and talk to you about issues related to sex? Leave your comments for Doug.
YOUR TEXTS: "Education is i think a child should have to through a class before being able to get contraception kinda like driving school"
"There are planned parenthood where they can get contriceptives without informing parents. If its more accessible say in school it will prevent kids raising kids or worse having abortions without there parents knowledge. And if there giving out condoms already whats the difference?"
