Know Yo Rights!

If you’re a teen in California, you should make sure to check out this handbook. Did you know that if you’re under eighteen, you have the right to:

  • Birth control or emergency contraception
  • Testing or treatment for STDs/STIs.
  • Pregnancy and prenatal care
  • Abortion services
  • HIV/AIDS testing

Thaaaat’s right! Who knew?! Not many teens, that’s for sure, which leads to statistics like THIS: “Although 15–24-year-olds represent only one-quarter of the sexually active population, they account for nearly half (9.1 million) of the 18.9 million new cases of STIs each year” (Guttmacher Factsheet).

Don’t become a statistic! #Knowyourrights
