That will end up to be counterproductive . . . to say the least.

Being that most of these teenagers are on their parents medical insurance, would they not find out regardless?

I doubt the test is very expensive. I'm sure there are clinics that offer it for free, or they take cash.

Tests are coded and it wouldn't simply say "STI check" or something like that. Its very discreet, kind of like when you get a penis enlargement supplement through the mail.....or so I've heard

Well then I think most of us can agree that this bill is pretty freaking stupid. What's next, getting parental consent to buy condoms?

This seems really dumb and counterproductive

I bet it was the Notary Association of America lobbyists that pushed for this

Maybe this guy was the image the politicians had in the back of their minds when making their decision.

This is true. STD testing is free at any federally funded health center/hospital. There are exceptions to some of the tests. But majority are free.

You think a 14y/o, unaware of his history of PCN anaphylaxis, should be administered Penicillin without parental knowledge?

You think a child is well-served by keeping her mental health issues secret from those who love and care most for her?

Same question for substance abuse. How can even a rudimentary sobriety plan exclude good parents?

This habit of cherry-picking issues regarding age of consent is fascinating.

You and me must be older than dirt because I'm also having a hard time understanding how/why 14 and 15 year-olds suddenly got all this maturity to make these decisions for themselves.

Then you're not that old to begin with, b/c only recently have folks that age been reduced to the notion of being "children". H3ck, according to our gov't 26 year olds are children.

You raise valid points. But this won't "keep parents in the loop" nearly as much as it will simply discourage many from seeking testing/treatment. The number of people unknowingly living with an STI is already too high, why make it even higher?

I feel dirty just reading that crap.

No, I just find it fascinating that a kid cannot get a high school sports physical w/o parental consent, but school officials can deliver middle-school girls to a KermitGosnell-type clinic for an abortion without parents being given a clue.
