The goal of #TrustTeens is to flip this narrative and share many perspectives on why we as a nation should trust teens with their bodies and how this should influence policies and clinical practice.
We see an alarming increase in threats to adolescents’ bodily autonomy, including denying teens comprehensive sex education, barriers to confidential contraceptive services, and heightened restrictions on abortion access for minors.
Decades of research have demonstrated that teens are capable of making their own decisions about their bodies. Narratives that young people are immature and incapable of making responsible decisions fuel restrictive policies and stand in opposition to the human rights that young people deserve.
