I would support parental notification laws when a minor wants to get an abortion. But I think it’s also important to note that oftentimes it is parents dragging their teenagers to the abortion clinic against their will.
Montana voters have approved a ballot measure that would allow parents to know when their minor daughter is considering an abortion. The Treasure State has not been able to support parental rights due to a state Supreme Court decision and this measure responds to it.
There are 37 states that require parental notification or permission before a minor can get an abortion. Montana is one of just 13 states without this common-sense policy.
