Quote of the day: Seattle schools offer IUDs to junior highers

IUD1We encourage all Take Charge providers to offer long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) in their clinics. A young person does not need parental consent to obtain a LARC or any other contraceptive method….

If the young person is not choosing abstinence, she would be able to select a LARC and have it inserted without parental consent….

We have public health departments, community-based clinics, college and university clinics, pediatric clinics, private physician practices, and family planning clinics, like Planned Parenthood [as providers].

~ A representative from Take Charge, a Medicaid program, responding to questions about “school-based health clinics in at least 13 Seattle-area public high schools and middle schools [which] offer long-acting reversible contraceptives” free of charge and without parental consent, CNS News, July 1
