>Do you want to know about your daughter’s abortion?

>Take a look at USAToday, today. An article on the Supreme Court’s hearing about a Parental Notification Act from New Hampshire, contains quotes from one of the Texas Physician Resource Council’s Board members, Linda Flower, MD, our Executive Chair.

The New Hampshire law only requires that a parent be notified – not even “consent.” I can’t imagine any doctor ever doing an appendectomy or removing a life-threatening mole without first obtaining the parent’s permission, much less notification. But, no one has a “right” to have their appendix removed or to have a melanoma biopsied.

I’m always shocked when this issue comes up. Children’s rights are limited by the necessity for their parents to care for them. That’s why they aren’t allowed to enter contracts. Other than for aides and remedies for sex, that is. While most States will not allow a girl to consent to sex, legally at the age of 14 or 15, they will allow her to seek contraceptives and even an abortion without even letting mom and dad know why she might look so pale or be tired.Go here for information on State’s regulations on minors and contraception and abortion.

This is not “sexual health.” This is child abuse.

Here’s a link to another article, for more on the controversy.
