Parental Consent Laws Have Never Hurt Minors

Townhall.com’s Hugh Hewitt interviewed an advocate for “Sarah’s Law,” a proposed parental-consent-for-abortion law in California, on his talk radio program last night.

Proponents from the group “Friends of Sarah” hope for passage of “Sarah’s Law” when it appears on the November 4 ballot.

Sarah was a 15-year-old California girl who had an abortion without her parents’ knowledge.  Her cervix was torn during the procedure.  The teen died from complications of a post-abortion infection.

The spokesperson from Friends of Sarah made one very powerful point to Hewitt that should be of interest to every pro-lifer.  No minor has ever been injured or worse due to parental consent laws in the more than 30 states with such restrictions on abortions.

Here‘s more from the group’s website:

Will passage of Sarah’s Law delay critical medical care, or cause young girls to turn to self-induced or back-alley abortions?

The effects of implementing parental involvement laws are now very well known. In more than 30 states which have parental involvement laws in effect in some cases for many years, there is no evidence of any injury or death from an illegal abortions, parental abuse, or delayed medical care. In fact, there is no credible evidence that any minor has ever even resorted to an illegal abortion because of a parental involvement law. Given that these laws have been in effect in other states for years, even decades, affecting millions of teens, the absence of any evidence of harm to teens is powerful evidence that these dire predictions are completely off the mark. Parental notification helps teens; it doesn’t harm them.

Unfortunately, opponents of parental notification eagerly exploit the public’s fear of mythical “back-alley” abortions, counting on that fear to override common sense, sound medical practice and good public policy.

Spread the word!
