We believe that a teenager in trouble should turn to her parents for support. Fortunately, most do. But, some young women live in violent or unsafe situations and are unable to do so.
If teens feel they can’t talk to their parents, for whatever reason, we want to be sure that they are safe. Unfortunately, parental-involvement laws put these young women at risk.
We can prevent teen pregnancy in the first place.
- Teens should be taught medically accurate, age-appropriate sex education, including information about abstinence and birth control.
- Accurate sex education also gives teens the facts. This way, they can protect themselves from unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
