Peabody Massachusetts - Under state law, clients under 18 years may give consent for pregnancy testing, birth control, STD testing and treatment, and HIV testing without parental involvement. However, if a health care provider suspects child abuse, sexual abuse or neglect, or if you say you’re going to hurt yourself or someone else, then the provider is required to report this.
An unmarried minor must obtain the consent of a parent, a legal guardian, or an order from the court (through a confidential proceeding known as a “judicial bypass”) to have an abortion. Please call us for more information.
