Commonwealth Club SF Office 595 Market Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105
Event Type: Panel Discussion
Teen pregnancy and young motherhood is an issue that spans education, politics, health, family life and more. It has received great attention recently with the federal decision to block over-the-counter sales of an after-sex contraceptive pill to girls under age 17. Given this ruling, as well as the creation of other new health-care legislation, what is the reality of teen pregnancy and teen reproductive care? How are our communities addressing this issue? Are there new barriers to birth control access and if so, what are they? To discuss this issue, we’re bringing together experts from the fields of health care, psychology, politics and more.
