One of the most evil manifestations of the abortion industry and the “health” system is their ability to have abortions performed on schoolgirls without the knowledge or consent of the child’s parents. This ugly injustice raised its unsavoury head again this week when a mother told the press of her horror and anger that her 16-year-old daughter had had a secret abortion arranged by a school counsellor. This is a matter against which pro-life organisations and others have railed for years, but seldom is it aired in the media. …Family First’s Mr McCoskrie reports that parental notification laws in Texas, Michigan, and other US states including liberal Minnesota, have seen a drop in both the pregnancy rate and the teen abortion rate, what he calls “a win-win situation for all concerned”.

A Hamilton mother-of-two who as a teenager had a secret abortion with the help of her school, says she wishes now her parents were informed.
