I don't think that schools should provide birth control. They should be able to provide condoms, but not birth control. People should go to their doctors and decide what is best for them, and then get a prescription from their doctor. Parents and schools should educate children on safe sex, but I don't think it is the school's responsibility to provide birth control. If a teenager wants to have sex, they should know the risks just like an adult should, and it should be their responsibility to get their own birth control. I could be wrong but I don't think adults are just handed out birth control under normal circumstances. Teenagers are so close to being adults themselves and need to prepare themselves for the real world, so they should learn to go to the doctor to get their own birth control too.
