An Oklahoma mother is outraged after she said her 16-year-old daughter got a birth-control implant in her arm from a Tulsa clinic during a trip there arranged by her daughter’s school.
“Had I known that this field trip was for her to get that done, I would not have allowed her to go,” Miracle Foster
Youth Services of Tulsa told the station it’s not required by law to tell parents if it gives contraceptives to minors — although the clinic said it does get occasional complaints from parents who aren’t aware of the law. KOKI added that Title X federal guidelines allow youths as young as 12 to get birth control without parental consent.
Clark said the school works with Youth Services of Tulsa and lets students leave campus for these sessions, the station said. The clinic said it’s been in partnership with Langston Hughes since 2013.
Foster was unmoved: “I just feel like my rights as a parent were violated,”
