I heard if your pregnant and you want an abortion you will have to have the babys father sign for it or something like that?! Is that true? And if it is why?

Not true. All that is needed is the woman's approval because she is the only one undergoing the procedure.

Nope, not true, but it used to be. When my mom got pregnant with me (less than a year after my older brother was born), she wanted to abort because she only wanted 1 child. My father refused to sign the consent, so I was born.

Just out of sheer curiosity - where and when were paternal consent laws in place?

I wonder if it was just the specific doctor or facility?
