Should Teens Be Required to Have Parental Consent for Abortions?
Filed under: In The News
The story points out that abortion opponents are using other local laws as a guide, such as one that "... requires Delaware teens ages 14 to 17 to get a parent's written permission to use a tanning bed. Children under 14 are prohibited from tanning unless a doctor recommends it." (Not to be flip about a serious topic, but under what circumstances would a doctor recommend that a 12-year-old use a tanning bed?)
What do you think? Is the proposed law reasonable? Or should pregnant teens be allowed to make this decision for themselves?
