  • i wouldnt do anything you want to help her but her parents apparently want her to get pregnant i wonder if they will help take care of the baby? you could do it while they are at work or something no one needs to know but you and her

  • If both parents are against it I wouldn't, considering that it is a medication. However I would go buy her a box of condoms-that way she is also protected against diseases.

  • I think that she needs to be protected, and you are wonderful to think about taking her.

    Do you have a Planned Parenthood in your area? If so, take her there. Then you will not worry about having to put her under your name or anything like that, it can be all her and they won't tell her parent's a darn thing. Hell, even if she is in the back being seen, and they come up and ask if she is there, they will say "I am not sure. Let me go check." and come back and ask her, and if she says not to tell them, they won't.

    The BC is free, and so are the regular check-ups, pregnancy tests, and STD testing. Really look into it. And if her parents DO find out and get mad, tough shit, you are doing the right thing for their daughter. They are being retarded thinking that ignoring it will make it go away.

  • I understand where she is comin from, but then not to go against her parents. but honestly I would take her, she can keep it secret for now. I started having sex at 15 myself...and luckily my mom was understanding enough to take me and put me on the pill so we wouldn't have any unplanned babies. I am thankful for that, I have been with the same guy since, we now have our 1st anyways I would do it, i myself don't trust condoms and even if she doesn't have sex....just in case she will be protected!!

  • I would not go against her parents, but this is something she can do on her own. I dont think she needs their permission. I would not voluntarily interfere but I would let her know that she does have options. Just let her know that she needs to protect herself and leave it at that. Also maybe trying to talk to her mom and let her know that burying her head in the sand never works. I would know. That approach might help. After that...let them deal with it on their own. I would be furious if someone interfered with my child.. but then again....I am not unwilling to deal with my teen.

  • Just give her condoms unless she gets the shot or something that won't give it away that she's on bc. You also might want to tell her not having sex is great birth control. Just a thought

  • Don't go against her parents wishes. It's not your right. Heck, you don't even know how old she is exactly.

  • you said she lives with you? um if she's living with you her parents don't have a damn say! take her to get it done...due to the HIPPA laws..privacy laws they can't say ne thing to the parents.the only way they would find out is if you or her told sister is 17 and has been pregnant abortion and one miscarriage! if my dad would have put her on BC after the first time it wouldn't have happened again!! but he didn't want to admit that his daughter was growing up!!!
