    No, they shouldn't. As has been said, it can go against people's religions. Secondly, they may prefer other methods of contraception. Thirdly, people may not want medical procedures, that's their own personal choice! I'm not a huge fan of human rights, but that seriously oversteps the mark!

    this has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with personal preference/choice

    yes someones religion may have an effect on their personal preferences, but you lot so far seem to think if you're not religious your view matters less

    The implant isn't suitable for every woman.

    Also could possibly encourage promiscuity? "No chance of a baby, let's have sex!!" Also if they have that they may be less likely to think of using condoms, therefore STDs can be spread.

    No, I think it should be an option. But making it complsory has many negative concequences. It could go against someones religion (eg. Cathloscism), it could have negative health effects on the young woman, as it can cause weight gain and sickness in some women, it is ethically dispicable, as I can pretty much guarentee that alot of girls will not want this done to them, and the use of condoms may go down, icreasing the occurance od STIs

    It's about personal liberty and freedom, nothing to do with religion.

    The availability of contraceptives, or lack thereof, has no effect on the average teenager's libido and desire to be promiscuous.

    Your other point of being less likely to use condoms is more valid.

    sounds like not a viable solution. It's education of purpose rather utilising out of ignorance which should be confronted.

    I think it should be a choice, not compulsory. In my opinion, we need to take responsibility for our own actions. A compulsory implant might prevent pregnancy but it could just as well inhibit responsible thoughts. And I think it's patronising towards those who do or would take responsibility anyway.

    I don't agree with that at all as implants are not suitable for everyone, and many would prefer different forms of contraception. I for one decided not to have it and went on the Pill instead because things like the implant freak me out for some reason.

    It should be a choice if girls go on contraception, because it means girls learn to take more responsibility for their own health and well being etc. and not get pregnant.

    No because the Implant does not work for a lot of women, I'm progestron intolerant and had to suffer for 9/10 months before they realised and then took it out.

    However what they should do is teach students about all the different contraception available including the risks and side effects they might have so students are well aware rather then just knowing about Condoms and the Pill

    We were only taught about the pill and condoms but I went to an all girls 'religious' school however my boyfriend went to a mixed comprehensive and they didn't have sex ed once the entire 5/6 years they were there.

    It all depends on the school but good on your school for telling you about it, I only found out about the implant (and other methods) when I went to the Family Planning Clinic.

    Then they may as well sterilize boys while there at it. It's there fault just as much. The British sed ed is just a big laugh. Being an outsider, seriously, I can understand why so many of your teens are pregnant.
