Republicans don’t like birth control age of consent is like 16 most places. there needs to be things in place for teenagers that want birth control whose parent’s wont let them when they turn 16. If they can consent to a life altering decision they should be able to get contraceptive.

Anyone who can get pregnant should be able to get contraceptives without another person's consent.

I only said 16 because if anyone below that gets pregnant it becomes crime territory.

Well, age of consent in Texas is 17, I'm pretty sure people under 17 are still having sex, and I'd prefer those who could get pregnant from rape have unfettered access to contraceptives, as well.

They break if you don't know how to put them on properly. And %1 ineffective is better than not.

Condoms have a efficacy rate of 98%

Condoms dont work when you’re raped because they’re probably not wearing one. Thats why alternatives need to be available
