Birth Control Mandate for Teens

Suppose a law was instituted that your teen had to go on birth control as soon as she got her period, or entered high school?  Would you agree, or fight it?  This new law has the same clout as the vaccination laws, and birth control is compulsory, unless a valid medical or religious reason is given.

I have known several Moms who made this choice.

Heres a question, why not a mandatory reversible vasectomy for all boys?  less complications, just as effective if done for all.    Not saying to do this.  just wondering why your hypothetical singles out girls.

not  a bad idea...there is no pill for boys, or implants to prevent pregnancy...there should be, tho..an implant to prevent sperm from forming

If my daughter wants birth control she can have birth control but I'm pro leaving parenting and bodily choices up to people.

Fight it. I needed it to help control my periods and I didnt even go on it until I was 16. And then it took 18 different perscriptions to find one that worked. If my child is blessed to not have my periods from hell there is NO WAY I am putting her through the hell of finding a b/c that works. Also, I started my period at 9. In my opinion that is wwaayy to early to start pumping hormones into a child, the damage it could do isnt something I want to cause my child.
