I mean there are different reasons for girls to be on the pill. I was on the pill at 15 because my periods would give me severe cramping and would keep me home from school once a month. The birth control pills helped simmer my cramps down by ALOT. But of course everyone thought my mom was giving me permission to have sex, which I wasn't. I didn't lose my virginity til I was 17.
But I think if teens ARE sexually active and parents get them on the pill or whatever, they ARE giving them permission. I guess it's good to be responsible, but when they are young they should be doing whatever it takes to get them to wait. JMO though.
What are your thoughts?

No. I fully intend to put my teen on birth control. But I also will not give her opportunity to have sex. If she ends up doing it she's going to have to be pretty sneaky. I hope she's smart enough to make wise choices.
