Teen Pregnancy - Part One: Medical Decisions
Part One of a two-part Justice for Children and Youth blogpost on teen pregnancy discusses when a young person can make decisions about their own medical treatment, such as how to deal with teen pregnancy; who decides if they are capable of making those decisions; and what happens if they are deemed not capable. There are resources listed for further information on teen pregnancy, support, and health care options. You can see Part Two: Non-medical decisions here.
