I have a friend at work whose 19 year old daughter needs birth control but they have no insurance. My friend has begged her daughter to use condoms until they have the money to get her to an ob/gyn (no health insurance). All the time I hear people talk about birth control clinics but we can't find one in our area. Any ideas?

Has you friend's daughter tried the local health department? I don't know if that will help or not but might be worth a try.
