“When You Decide”: A Judge’s Guide to Pregnancy Prevention Among Foster Youth

Judges and child advocates play an important role in ensuring that youth get the support, knowledge, and tools needed to make healthy long-term decisions regarding sex and childbearing. This guide to pregnancy prevention among foster youth is created by the National Campaign and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. The guide supports judges and other child welfare stakeholders in ensuring that those involved with foster youth focus on sexual and reproductive health as an integral part of the youth’s case plan.
