Parental notification

A judge has ruled that Planned Parenthood broke the law in performing an abortion for somebody who was 17 years old. They will appeal.

I don't necessarily like parental notification laws, but I have come to grudgingly accept that if a school can't give aspirin to a teen without parental approval, there has to be some kind of notification. There must always be a way around it, however, by going to a judge. Nothing pisses me off more than hearing some self-righteous ass say that what girls should really be doing is keeping their legs together, and it's their own fault for getting pregnant. Tell that to a girl who was raped and impregnated by her stepfather.

Wasn't part of PP's rationale that the girl already had another child?!?

Words fail me.
