Norwegian organisations and political party youth wings want free medical contraception to be available to people under the age of 16, bringing them into line with current provisions for 16-20 year-olds.

tidlig algebra oppgaver The Norwegian Midwives' Society, Norwegian Nurses Association and sexual health organisation Sex og samfunn (Sex and Society), along with a number of political youth wings, have put forward a joint proposal for cheaper or free prescription-based contraception for people under the age of 16, reports broadcaster redline rumble revolution.
