Ch. 17 Persuasive Speech
Transcript of Ch. 17 Persuasive Speech
> Less unplanned pregnancies
> Girls can use protection without the fear of getting in trouble from their parents
> It can be used to regulate your cycle
> It will help prevent abortions
Today I discussed the pros and cons about birth control and why I think teenage girls should be allowed to have access to it without parental consent.
Restricting access to birth control is dangerous to the health and welfare of teenage girls because it increases the risk of unplanned pregnancies.
Today I'm going to talk to you about why I think girls should be able to get birth control without their parents permission
> Teenage girls may face violence or other severe consequences from their parents
> Some say it might promote teens to have sex at an earlier age
Ch. 17 Persuasive Speech
Should Teenage Girls be Allowed to get Birth Control Without the Permission of Their Parents?
> Facts about birth control
> Why it should be allowed
> Sexually active teenagers won't have to make the decision of keeping a child, putting it up for adoption, or getting an abortion
> Roughly half of the women in the United States have sex by the time they're 18, and without contraceptive they are 90% likely to become pregnant within the first year.
Birth control would bring those numbers down.
> Parents should be involved in the decision
> The wrong birth control can cause minor health complications
Why It Should Be Allowed
> The most common argument against it is that you should wait until marriage, but kids are going to have sex either way. With access to birth control without parental permission, teens can stop having unplanned pregnancies and protect themselves from STD's.
> Not every parent teaches their child about safe sex, so someone has to.
> Birth control can come in many different forms, but all should be administered by a doctor
> Currently no state or federal laws require minors to have parental consent
> Parental consent for contraception is unconstitutional, because it is not an effective way to prevent sexual activity. Carey v. Population Services Int’l, 431 U.S. 678, 693–96 (1977).
