I read the other day that the Senate will be considering a bill next week that would require a parent to be notified before a girl under the age of 18 received an abortion. I'm kind of torn on how I feel about this so I thought I'd throw it out there for discussion.
On one hand, I'm strongly pro-choice so my inclination is to be against any kind of limitations placed on this right. On the other hand, as a parent myself, I know that I would want to be notified before my daughter went through ANY kind of medical procedure (not just an abortion). However, I understand that not all parents would be as supportive so maybe a blanket requirement like this isn't the best idea. Thoughts?
