Since cool heads have been the norm and not the exception around here, lets push the envelope... And it is a BBC news article. (Hey Skunk, who's looking out for you. ) Anyway, 14 year old, gets preggers, talks to the school nurse, nurse talks her into the abortion pill, they administer it without telling her mother, her mother finds out, tells daughter not to abort, but it is too late. Link I think this goes beyond abortion rights here and more into parental rights. I don't want my kids getting any medical treatment without my knowledge and consent. Granted they are young right now, but I know my mom was at every doctor visit I had until I was 18. Anyway, what do you guys think... Beyond abortion rights, should a school be able to administer medication without parents knowledge? Should kids who are pregnant have to tell their parents before they have an abortion? Is there an age limit to get a tattoo in England? I know in the US many places require parental permission if you are under 18. Is an abortion less important than a tattoo? Shouldn't the parent know, so they can talk to their kid about STD's? Be nice guys!
