Controling teenage girls bodies

IUDs: the final solution for teen pregnancy?

I do not own my daughter's body, I have a responsiblity to teach and educator her about her body. Shoving an IUD up her vagina , so I can sleep worry free about not being a grandmother is NOT parenting.

At Department of Children and Families, teenagers are treated with more dignity then this. There is a point in which a social worker should respect their sexual decisions and a time to step in and discuss the issue. What a social worker can NOT do is coerce a teen into birth control or threaten to take away services or education if they do not comply using birth control.

Sex education/health is not birth control management, it is a conversation about adult relationships, emotional and biological.
