Poll: Contraceptives for Teenagers. Do you approve?
Controversial Nairobi women rep Esther Passaris had the twitter buzzing last week when she revealed she had her daughter on contraceptives at age 16 to prevent her from getting pregnant.
It caused quite the debate on social media! Do parents have the right to know that contraceptive drugs or devices have been prescribed for their adolescent children? Or do teenagers have the right to obtain birth control without the knowledge – and possible disapproval – of their parents? Do they have the same rights as adults to confidentiality in sex-related matters?
We’d like to hear your opinions. Would you allow your teen to be on contraceptives?
