    Florida court rules 16-year-old is not "mature" enough to get an abortion.
    CBS News (Moderate Left) • Factual Grade 76% • 3 min read

    The teenager sought approval to have an abortion, without the written consent of a parent or guardian. Circuit Court Judge Jennifer J. Frydrychowicz denied the waiver. The teen then appealed. The teen stated she is sufficiently mature to make the decision, that she "is not ready to have a baby," and she is "still in school." She said doesn't have a job, and the father is unable to assist her.
    ...
    [An appellate court] said the teen is almost 17 years old, and while she has no parents, she has a legal guardian. The appeals court said it appeared the trial court wanted to give the teen "additional time" to consider her decision. "The minor says she was open to having a child, but changed her view after considering her inability to care for [one]."
    ...
    The judges ruled that Judge Frydrychowicz determined the teen may return at a later date and the court may re-evaluate. The teen said her guardian was "fine" with the abortion, and the court said if that guardian "consents [...] all that is required is a written waiver."

Should the government make menstrual products available for free?

433 votes, 51 comments

Context: Scotland becomes first country to make feminine hygiene products available for free.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

No - The phrase "you get what you pay for" applies here - the quality of the products will be abysmal, they will be ruthlessly pilfered, and the government will open itself up to feminine health related lawsuits. The government should instead work to ensure families have a living wage with which to purchase such necessary sundry items.


Yes - It’s a natural female health need. There should not be any controver...
