This 14 year old girl was taken for an abortion without parental knowledge. Her mom found out about her abortion from a "passer-by".
The lack of parental consent laws for abortion really get me. The logic behind it just does not cut it...we do not worry about parental reaction for anything else, drunk driving, arrests of any nature, etc., etc.
As someone who was coerced into an abortion by her parents, I am an example of how they can be the ones to force the destruction of the baby, yet, at least this was within the family and our own mess up, not a complete stranger making such a life altering decision.
