Should it be mandatory for young females (age 14-21) to be on birth control? Would it be immoral?
I've read and heard a lot on young mothers within society here in Australia recently. Some people say these girls are nieve and immature to raise a child, and others say they are brave and strong women who accept their responsibilities.
In the articles I've read, most girls have been around the age of 15 to 17 with one child, others with twins or triplets. Some still in a relationship with their baby's biological father and others doing it solo. Some have been abandoned by their family and friends, and others with full support behind them.
If birth control is mandatory for young females it will;
- Reduce the birth rate
- Reduce the population of young mothers
- Reduce the rate of welfare dependants
- Reduce the unemployment rate
- Possibly encourage sexual activity (?)
(And any other points you could think of)
But is it immoral as a human being to have control over a natural gift women are blessed with? Is it necessary for young women in the 21st century?
Yes or no?
