that's two years younger than the current minimum age of 17.

we hit the streets of Eastern Idaho to hear what local residents had to say about the change in age limits.

Two Pocatello women sounded off on this issue. Heather Reece supported the potential change when she said,

"I think that's a good thing if a girl knows she shouldn't be a parent, but she is sexually active and she's trying to do something about it. She should be able to get it; so I definitely think that's a good thing."

Casey Bacon, feels that this change could damage communication between parents and children. She also noted that,

" I don't exactly agree with it because it feel like it gives young girls the excuse to have unprotected sex and I don't believe that that's a good idea for 15 year olds because they are too young. So, I believe it gives them an excuse and it's an easy way out.
