Minor’s Rights to Abortions, Sterilizations, Contraceptives, and Sex Education

Record #:
North Carolina requires parental consent before health care providers may render most types of medical care to minors, but courts and legislatures have begun to create exceptions to the rule. Proponents argue the laws are necessary to protect the health of the minor who would not seek medical care if parental consent were required. Opponents argue that the state is insinuating their way into the parent-child relationship and threatening family integrity.
