Bristol Palin Bashes Movement That Provides Free Birth Control To Minors

Filed under: PolitikBristol PalinHealthControversy

Bristol has some strong thoughts on this.

Bristol Palin is not a fan of Washington state's birth control initiative.

The Evergreen State has a Medicaid plan called "Take Charge," which provides free birth control, gynecologist visits, and education to women and men of all sorts of ages, including teenagers.

The expecting mother was enraged in her blog on Wednesday after referencing a report by conservative organization Judicial Watch that claims Washington was providing birth control implants to 10-year-olds.

She was especially upset that the report revealed young children didn't even need a parent's consent to receive an IUD, writing:

"It is crazy that the government is offering a controversial form of birth control that can have serious life-long side effects to 10-year-old children, but then to do all of this behind a parent's back is simply outrageous!"

However, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has stressed in the past that the internal contraceptive is actually recommended for younger patients, and is completely safe.

The 24-year-old opened the post by saying that, at the age of 10, she wasn't concerned about birth control because the only things that mattered to her were "playing outside and acing fifth grade."

What do U think? Do you agree with Bristol? SOUND OFF in the comments!
