Birth control has many positive side effects which include the following: stops heavy periods, helps prevent painful acne, and can actually cut your chances of ovarian cancer in half. Most girls start to menstruate between age 10 and 15 years, the average age being 12. Most teenagers experience bad period cramps and have the feeling of “knives going through the abdomen.” Being on birth control can help the lining of the uterus thin out, meaning less painful periods.
The Law at that time was that you could only get an abortion if your life was in danger, Roe said although her life was not in danger that she should not afford the expenses of traveling out of state for the abortion.

Contraceptives hold great importance in this day and age because they aid in the prevention of unwanted pregnancy. One of the hardest choices that a great deal of youngsters face is whether to engage in sexual relations/intercourse or not.

The article explores public masculinization of sexuality causing discomfort in women talking openly about sex. Shameful or improper feelings prevent open dialogue with regard to sex creating a social climate that does not support autonomy of gender order regarding sexuality. Culture factors greatly into how adolescents are taught and view sexuality.

It is uncommon in the United States that sex education accentuates learning about sexual desire or pleasure, especially for girls.

Using their views on the accessibility of birth control, Planned Parenthood has been educating teens in schools about being sexually active and the different Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) that students could put themselves at risk for (Who We Are, 2014). Teaching kids about sex in school as a mandatory course has some mixed reviews. Some parents think that is not ethical to bring intercourse to the thoughts of their children when they should be learning more from their core curriculums.

They also deprive women in their mid and late teens of choice under the guise of protecting that choice. The highly “patriarchal and paternalistic” law is what Delgado sees an area for further revue.
