So as a teenager, I've learned that there is a LOT of waiting to do... 
I have to wait until 16 to drive, 17 to watch rated R movies, 18 to vote, 21 to drink... so why don't I have to wait to get a sterilization for free even if my parents disagree? Why is it that Obamacare is allowing 15 year old girls to make decisions that will affect the rest of their lives? 
So as a teenager, I know I mess up. I make mistakes and learn from them; it's a part of growing up. At the age of 15, the pre-frontal cortex (that part in the brain that handles decision-making) isn't fully developed yet. Teenagers already have problems with "experiments", why give them yet another way to mess up something permanently? If a teenager is sterilized, they can't have children for the rest of their life! They're most likely not married, and therefore are making a decision for the family as well. That is way too big of a decision for a kid; a 15 year old kid.
So as a teenager, I know my opinion doesn't really matter that much. I mean, I'm just one person. However, I would like to make known my intense dislike of this act and publicize the fact that such an act exists. Perhaps, if enough people are aware, they will stop all this nonsense. That's what I hope. What about you?
