Session after session, legislators have always had multiple issues to consider. Yet the Republican leadership refuses to consider extending the same protection to girls under 18 that their male counterparts enjoy – namely parental involvement in all medical procedures! For whatever reason, abortion remains a PROTECTED invasive surgery that a girl as young as 11 can consent to without a parents EVER KNOWING.
“They have more important things to do, like approve the Governor’s tax package,” is a constant refrain heard from senators, staff and powerful lobbyists in Carson.
Meanwhile, girls are asked to face – completely alone and isolated from her family – one of the greatest stressors possible, a crisis pregnancy. Secret abortions support predators, sex traffickers and coercive boyfriends – they certainly do not benefit the young girls who then must carry that secret around for the rest of their lives.
ACTION: PLEASE CALL THE FOLLOWING SENATORS ASAP AND ASK THEM TO RE-REFER AB405 TO HHS, GIVE IT A HEARING AND PASS IT. PROTECT TEENS AND PROTECT PARENTAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES!
