Plan B backup pill

I find it highly ridiculous teens can go have an abortion without their parents consent but can't have access to a simple pill that offers wayyyyy less risk than an abortion. It's NOT an abortion pill it's prevention!

agreed.

When i was 17 the condom broke and I went and had to go through this huge ordeal to get it, and they wanted to call my parents about it.

What state allows teens to have an abortion without at least one parent's consent?

In Florida, they have to have consent.

 I agree, but I also find it ridiculous that so many teens get pregnant in this day and age with preventive items being available anywhere at any given time. Sex Ed is taught in school as early as 5th grade, STDs are mutating and becoming resistant to treatment and sexual protection is available at their fingertips. So I find it more appalling that the rate of teen pregnancy is still so high.

In WA, any reproductive or mental health services can be obtained by a minor 13 years or older.  It works both ways - a parent can't force a teenager to have an abortion (or to have the child).

There's a few. But there is easy ways around it. The doctor has to call and speak to a parent and notify them. My sister could pass for my mom over the phone...

Also a judge can waive it if you don't want your parent to be notified.

Makes me wonder what is in store for the future of America. With teen pregnancy at an all time high and on the rise and dropping out of school.
