Only in America can a 17 year old break his/her arm and the hospital can't treat them until a parent consents for treatment, yet a 13 year old girl can go into a clinic and have an abortion and her parent wont even be notified at all!!!

Conservatives want government out of their lives, but has no trouble telling a woman what she can or can't do with her body. Keep government out of it! It is between a woman, her doctor, and anyone else she sees fit to include in her decision. If you don't believe in abortion, don't get one!

If you don't want a baby, don't get pregnant.

A key word in you comment is "woman." Looking from a legal point, any female under the age of 18 is not considered and adult in the state of New Mexico. I also translate this as not yet being a woman. Therefore if a female is under the legal age, the parent (s) shoul be notified about the issue.

I agree with the other two posters.

Good Post. Now, I wonder if the young girl, is harmed or killed by the abortionist, who is going to pay for that. The school, or the school official who took her to the abortion mill? What if the school official were to refuse to take the girl, is that going to be a requirement of the school official, and if so, how is that not interfering in his or her life?

It is a personal choice for the woman. But if she has a good family environment they will handle it. But if you are raped and get pregnant then the answer is what that woman wants. The schools should be teaching safe sex and the out come if you do. This should be when kids are in middle school, this is when they become active in sex. and the schools let parents know and sign a paper that the parents know what day this is going to be happening.Also parents should be talking to their kids on this issue!!

Are you going to force are allow the Government to force these children to get this sex education, and force the parents from opting out? More government interference!

Just another blooming idiotic comment from the far left. The article talks about teenagers still living at home and being brought up and suppoorted by their parents dits. Is being notified too much to ask? Only in a radical liberal mind.

We are not talking about women we are not really debating the abortion issue. We are merely discussing that if a minor girl wants an abortion her parents should have to be notified, just like if that same minor girl needs any other medical attention!!

Chances are, if the kid's knocked up by 17, the parents don't give a sh*t anyway. Stupid bill, a total waste of time and money. Safe abortions should be available at any time, to anyone, and without political obstacles.

So if your minor daughter went to a plastic surgeon and had a breat enhancement you would be okay with the fact the doctor didnt call for your permission? After all its her body and if she wants Double D's at 14 she should be able to have them!

do you mean that SS wasn't plundered during the Bush Years? the Reagan years, Bush the Minor's 8 years? do you mean now that the republicans control congress that they are going to get all honest and quit robbing social security?

It may not be all of a bad thing. It's just millions of potential future liberal democrat voters snuffed out.

Liberals want to tell you what to eat, what to drive, what gun or magazine you can have, what temperature to set your thermostat at, what additives to put in your fuel, what warning labels to place on mattresses and other store bought items, what school kids need to be taught, what not to smoke and then what to smoke and where to niot smoke it and then where to smoke it. Liberals are pro death when it comes to the unborn but pro life when it comes to the murderer in prison. Maybe the sperm donor would like a say in it. Maybe the child would like to live.

It would be so refreshing to come to topix and see people stay on topic of the story (issue) at hand. Democrates blaming Republicans while Republicans blame Demogrates just shows society has become one that plays the blame game. "Oh it is not my fault, it is the other sides fault!" Blaming past government administrations doesn't help either. That is water under the bridge and unless I am totally stupid, no one can bring that water back up stream.

History is important so we can learn from it and hopefully not make the same mistakes again. There will always be differences of opinions, which there should be, but blaming others in not the answer in my opinion.

Just some food for thought. Thank you

Actually I'm a registerd Republican and vote that way in the local elections for the most part, But nationally and state wide there is no difference in the 2 parties, not for the last several years, we need a third party . The last election will prove I'm right they will all back slide just like in 95. Like I said I'm suckin up this socialist system while it lasts, invest in something you can touch, not paper money, it is going to be useless.
