How Young Is Too Young for Birth Control?

You are too young for birth control when you don’t even know how children are conceived.

 

You are too young for birth control when you aren’t even developed enough to enjoy sex.

 

You are too young for birth control when you don’t know where the organs to have sex go. (Yes I said it.)

 

You are too young for birth control when you haven’t even hit puberty.

 

You are too young for birth control when you can’t understand—or read—the instructions on how to take the pill.

 

You are too young for birth control when you don’t even know whether you like boys or girls—of course this is a dilemma older people struggle with too.

 

You are too young for birth control when you still live in your parent’s home and depend on them for your livelihood—i.e. you can’t take care of a child.

There are many reasons I can list for when a girl is too young to be popping pills, but I think the most important of them all is:

You are too young for birth control when it is a crime–and a sin–for you to have sex. Ever heard of statutory rape? It exist for you too Maine.

Statutory Rape Laws  in Maine

Gross sexual assault to have sexual intercourse with a person under age 14

Sexual abuse of a minor for anyone to have sexual intercourse with someone, other than his spouse, who is either age 14 or 15 and the actor is at least five years older.

Results in–respectively

Up to 40 years in prison

Up to one year in prison. Up to five years in prison if the actor is at least 10 years older than the victim.

  2. I agree! People who hand out these birth controls to younger kids like it’s nothing also don’t take into account the serious health risks some of these birth controls have and the long-term effects that it will have on young girls. These girls have no idea and could spend the rest of their lives suffering from them.
