So basically should parents be able to force a younge teenager into having treatment that the teenager doesn't want or should the teenagers wishes be followed.
In the end it is all down to communciation and if you communicate correctly then a child should never be put in the position where they dont wnat t tell their parents.
This will be a debate that wil run and run......
Also if they can make such life changes decisions then at what age do you say its okay to start having sex and drinking alcohol????
The age of consent for sex is out of date beyond belief.
I think teenagers should be allowed to have an abortion without their parents knowledge. As an example my mother used to work in Homerton hospital (in Hackney, North London) and a turkish girl came in pregnant. Her boyfriend and her family didn't know about the pregnancy and were fairly strict muslim so an abortion was the best solution
