4 doctors agree
In brief: No
All 50 states have laws allowing kids autonomy over dealing with stds.
Although some states limit that to above ages 12 or 14 years old. In addition, its unethical to force teenagers to do anything medical (including drug and std testing). However, talk about this with your physician and allow him/her to discuss it with your child.
