Introduced by Rep. John Ahern, (R-Spokane) (R) on January 17, 2007, to require a physician to notify at least one parent before performing an abortion on a woman that is under 18 years of age. If the woman does not want the notification, the superior court of the residence county shall make the determination on whether the abortion may continue. The bill defines the criteria on which the court shall make the determination. The bill contains an emergency clause, which causes it to take effect immediately.
Referred to the House Health Care & Wellness Committee on January 17, 2007.
1) What is right... or not... by Anonymous on February 7, 2008 First off, I think that abortion is wrong. Restricting a person to make a decision on their own is even worse. While I don't agree, allowing laws to pass preventing a persons right to be responsible for their own decisions is even worse. It seems like a good thing to save the life of someone you may never meet, but what kind of life would it be mothered by someone who never wanted you? If we are to ban abortion or refuse a persons choice to such, then why not ban ejaculation? Seeds have life as well.
2) what's wrong by Anonymous on December 6, 2007 Obviously you have never been in a situation where you didn't know if you could feed and house the children you already had, or if you knew the child would be born crippled, or if you knew you giving birth meant the mother would die, ...
This is a private issue and should remain private. No one should decide what is best for another. That's REALLY wrong.
3) This is why by Anonymous on December 4, 2007 it is wrong but atleast were taking steps to make it harder for people to have one and eventually they wont be able to have one at all again unless if raped or incest.
