Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, most forms of birth control are now covered by health insurance with no out-of-pocket costs, but there are limitations. Research the various methods/techniques of birth control and find statistical data on unplanned pregnancies across the United States and within your state.
In your post, address the following questions:
- Are you surprised by the pregnancy rates within the United States and your state? Why or why not?
- Should birth control products be free to anyone who wants to use it?
- Should birth control products, such as condoms, birth control pills, and patch readily available for teenagers without a parent’s knowledge or consent? Why or why not? If so, at what age?
