Your State's Sexual Health Laws - for teens

The Sex, Etc. website provides an easy to use guide to each state's sexual health laws, intended for a teenage audience. Just click on your state to view information about rights to abortion and birth control, access to pregnancy testing, condoms, and emergency contraception, testing and confidentiality for HIV and STI's, rights to sex ed in schools, and anti-discrimination policies to protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender teens.

The Sex, Etc. site also provides additional resources for teens, including personal stories on numerous topics, information on sexual and emotional health concerns, a glossary, body diagrams, and answers to frequently asked questions. The site is very frank about sexual health topics. Unfortunately, it does not provide author names, references, or the date topics were updated for the FAQ topics, so should be taken with a grain of salt. I'm not singling this site out - I think it's very interesting and I wish it had been around in my early teens - just reminding you to be cautious about which websites you rely on for health information.
