Your Right to Information

From § 1 SGB VIII (Paragraph 1, Book 8 of the German Social Code or “Sozialgesetzbuch): “Every young person has the right to promote their development and be educated as a responsible and community-oriented personality.

Development here means that you are also entitled to education (birth control, understanding your body, etc.) and information.

This generally happens at school in sex education classes, at home, at the doctor’s or at a counselling centre like donum vitae.
