3. Your Right To Pregnancy-Related Care And Abortions


Pregnancy

In the same way that your agency doctor shouldn't share information about your pregnancy, your agency caseworker is not supposed to tell anyone about your pregnancy without your written permission. Unfortunately, in practice, they often do. If you find out that you're pregnant, but you aren't sure what you want to do, and you want to talk to someone who you are certain will keep your information private, you can always seek counseling outside of your agency. To talk to someone outside of your agency, check out the resource guide at the end of this handbook for a list of adolescent-friendly health providers all around New York City. You can call and make an appointment to speak with a counselor about your options confidentially. If you think your private information is not being kept private, contact your lawyer!
