Should parents be notified about a minor's abortion?


Should parents be notified about a minor's abortion?
STLtoday.com

After nearly two hours of vigorous questioning, U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker on Tuesday said she would decide soon whether to block a new Indiana law that would allow parents to be notified about their child's abortion, even if a judge has waived parental consent.The parental notice law, signed by Gov. Eric Holcomb in April, is the latest Indiana abortion statute to be challenged by Planned Parenthood and the ACLU of Indiana. Other abortion laws blocked in Indiana:Those under 18 who want an abortion must either receive parental consent or ask a judge to waive the consent.The new statute requires the young woman's parents to be notified of her intent to seek an abortion, unless the judge decides the notification would not be in her best interest. The ACLU and Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky argue that the law will have a chilling effect on mature teenagers who will not want to seek a waiver of consent from a judge due to fear of parents being notified.
