How can abortion be lifted up, not only as a crowning liberty of all women, but also as a medical procedure that requires almost no oversight!
Could lawmakers really believe, and thus decide, that parental consent of a tattoo is more important than parental consent of an intrusive procedure like abortion? A procedure that could possibly harm or kill their child; not to mention kill their grandchild/children – surely, not.
Well, according to LifeSiteNews.com, Maryland lawmakers have done just that:
The Maryland House of Delegates has unanimously approved a proposal to require "parental consent" for tattoos and body piercing done on minors. However, the state still only requires that one parent be notified that a minor is going to have an abortion, with no need for the parent’s consent.
Maryland’s Parental Notification for Abortion Law (Article 20-103) requires that one parent or guardian be notified before a minor has an abortion. The parent/guardian does not need to consent to or agree with the minor’s choice, but does need to know the minor is planning to have an abortion.
