Resource: Aid for Women v. Foulston

By: Center for Reproductive Rights

October 3, 2003

The Center for Reproductive Rights brought this suit on behalf of a diverse group of healthcare and counseling professionals who work with teens, and who sought to protect those teens’ privacy and access to health and counseling services. The suit alleged that it would violate teens’ right to informational privacy to require health and counseling professionals to report consensual sexual contact between teen peers when the professional does not suspect that either teen has been injured by the contact.
