Teens do not need parents' permission for family planning services.

What is "pregnancy options counseling?"
Pregnancy options means the different choices a woman has when she learns she is pregnant, including parenting a child, having an abortion or planning an adoption.  Pregnancy options counseling is a session between a pregnant woman and a counselor or health care provider to talk about these options.

Most family planning clinics provide pregnancy options counseling. Call All-Options Talk Line at (888) 493-0092 for options counseling by phone.
