For the first time in four decades, parental involvement in an underage child’s medical procedures – including abortion – may finally be guaranteed. Girls and boys, under 18, can not be expected to make life-changing decisions without the knowledge of their greatest advocates, their parents.
AB405 is a commonsense bill that requires a doctor peforming an abortion to NOTIFY one parent prior to an underage girl receiving this surgical or medical procedure, with inherent risks and complications. Parental consent is not required, merely notification. Just like a parent NEEDS to know when their child is getting a tooth filled, a tylenol dispensed by a school nurse, or has been skipping school, parents need to know about an abortion.
This will be decided – up or down – in the next three days. I know you have called, written and attended hearings. But can you give our state just a little more?
