so why are there laws that demand that the minor have parental consent to get one?? if it's a matter or parental rights, then the parent should be able to also decide for the abortion, and that would be that...
and that isnt the case...
I'll agree that the parent or parents should know weather or not their child has chosen an abortion, since it's their responsibility to watch over the child, and there is always a chance of complications after the fact that they might miss if they have no knowledge of the abortion...
but I fail to see the reason for making it necessary for the girl that young to obtain parental permission to obtain the abortion.. rather I would lean towards any parent that would refuse that permission would be negligent!

I think the minors health should be priority number one in any of those discussions and not politics. I think the best source to determine the minors health would be a doctor.

Exactly. I think under the best of circumstances, the parents should be consulted and allowed to counsel their daughter, but it should ultimately be up to the pregnant woman child.

Is a minor allowed to not take a cancer treatment?

Are a minor's parents allowed to withhold cancer treatment? Nope.

I am saddened to hear about your youth, and I hope you have not taken my discussion of what the law is in any way to be offensive or disrespectful to you.

I always argue for choice. Choice is a two way street. I wish that pro-lifers were more inclined to help teenagers like me than to shame and fight those who have made the opposite choice. As a single mother on state aide and food stamps, I was shamed and treated like dirt by upstanding Christian folk!

a reply to: DBCowboyso you are saying this twelve year old child should be forced to carry the offspring of the bastard who decided to shove his man parts into her little girl parts by force or coercion. now then she would have to watch her little body swell up like a ball and feel this unwanted thing moving inside of her then when its time have her little girl parts stretched wide open as this reminder of her attacker crawls out of her or worse she is split open to allow it to enter the world then you expect her to be responsible for it for 18 years

no, they expect her to go through the pain of childbearing just to surrender the baby to the foster care system that failed her so miserably!!

Here in the south this happen more often that people think, I worked for the school system in my neck of the woods, young girls rape and becoming pregnant by family members happen a lot, the girls are hushed out of school out of site and pregnancies are terminated plain and simple, no news about it no media frenzy.

Is nothing more horrible that knowing a young girl been rape by their own fathers and even grandparent.

Yes I knew a few.

Why have you decided one problem is less important than another? to me murder is a far more serious problem than some false rape allegation.

FALSE ...... She is 12 years old

Statutory rape: law

The crime of having sex with someone who is younger than an age that is specified by law.

Too young to consent.

Maybe if you had the sense to actually pay attention to my posts rather than see one or two points I made...and allow them to trigger you into responding with your emotions.

I already stated how I felt about that one particular case. Do I have to spell it out for a third time? The beauty of this forum is that the stuff you post remains unless deleted by the mods.

And nothing I've posted has been deleted by the your homework.

a reply to: peter vlar, you misunderstand.

Nobody is disputing that abortion has been around since forever...what I was clearly saying is that there wasnb't always such a prevalent agenda to push it, to create this obvious narrative that it's's never a good thing.

Sexual promiscuity is promoted in the is this narrative that if you don't want a kid - forget exceptional circumstances like rape and incest...not all abortions are a product of a sordid affair - this narrative that if it's just inconvenient for you to have a kid...just get rid of it.

Maybe people have it backwards...maybe the best option isn't so much to promote abortion as a choice, but to convince people that unwanted pregnancy should be avoided to begin with.

Let's not kid ourselves - the truth is this, people are selfish...people want what they want and care not about the consequences...until there's consequences. The message I'm getting for most of you is this:

I WANT to be sexually promiscuous and careless but I still WANT to be selfish and not have to worry abou thte consequences and I always get what I WANT.

People are beyond selfish...but the funniest thing is this:

I'm not forcing you or anyone to do anything, it's amazing how ridiculously defensive you all are about this...probably because I'm hitting a nerve.

The bitchy responses do nothing but show me how many people are so callous...hiding behind this notion of being liberal..the old "it's her body" crap. It what you want with it.

I'm as entitled to my views as you lot are to get preggers and kill your own offspring...I can't stop you, go for it. It's y'all that's trying to control me and people like me. It's your way or the high way, it ain't enough to simply feel how you feel about hate the fact that you can't force me to feel the same.

Well cry me a river. You were taught to be, I can't stop any of you. I can speak about it, though...whether you all like it or not.

Tell you what...go and find me a historical case that pre-dates the 20th century that shows a woman aborted a child not for heath reasons, or because it was the product of some rape or sordid little affair...but simply becaue the mother was an idiot and landed up pregnant with a baby she decided wasn't convenient for her.

Someone who got pregnant through their own stupidity, then aborted the child. Find me abortion clinics that crack out abortions like Rolf Harriss handing out candy on a playground that pre-dates the 20th century.

Find me the stone-age equivalent of planned parenthood.

Let's get real...the majority of abortions are purely selfish acts carried out by stupid, selfish people who allowed their crotch and lust to take precedent over all else, lacked self control.

Lessons need to be learnt...actions should have consequences. But consequences aren't let's do away with that, 100% murder in favour of sleeping in the bed they made.

Stop pretending it's normal. Stop pretending it's liberal...stop pretending it's acceptable..stop pretending it has been there for 5,000 years.

Kids are bombarded with sexually suggestive material from the minute they can comprehend it...constantly. They even teach them about abortions, LGBT...I recently saw a video with a drag queen singing to a class full of kids. So don't tell me this has been going on for 5,000 years because you're a LIAR plain and simple.

I'll tell you why people are promoting abortions as a viable option...because they also want to promote filth and sexual promiscuity...and that tends to result in a lot of unwanted pregnancy...let's get to the real issue.

Or keep pretending that people like me are just scum...what was it someone said earlier...probably abusive - because I said that if I got a girl pregnant she WILL have it.

that's right...because it will be consentual and planned...I've no desire to impregnate a woman that doesn't want to be pregnant and have a child. That's how it should be...yet I'm the bad guy. It's pathetic.

^^^ truth

I stand corrected...well phew for you, noticing that has allowed you to casually dodge the actual points I made regadring your false claims.

But you're right...looks like one of my posts were now that I've realised and acknowledged that perhaps you can acknowledge the fact that I've in no way, shape or form denied the 12 year old rape victim anything.

Or you can fixate on my deleted post.

Just to clue you in...the post where I stated quite clearly that there should be exceptional circumstances like rape and incest still remains.

I will never understand some pro lifers who chant, do not kill that baby...etc but then turn around and complain about their tax dollars going to feed these unwanted children. It is like they only view the fetus as a human but when it is born, they are no longer their concern basically not a human after birth.

My favourite was the guy who criticised those of us against abortions for being against abortions while not simultaneously killing all of ISIS.

Like the two are somehow mutually inclusive.

It's almost as if your opinion has more credit or weight if you've murdered a bunch of terrorists.

I mean, i kinda saw the funny side but it was an extremely ridiculous thing to say.

It's good to see people outraged over a horrible violation of a child.

I just wish they'd feel the same outrage over the horrible violation done to an unborn child.

But that's just my opinion.

I wonder what country the victim of this rape came from? Notice how that aspect of the whole article is avoided? Refugee, Illegal? But let's keep the borders open and allow people who don't deserve to be brought into our civilized society to COME ON IN!

I hate abortions but I also hate others deciding what others can do with their body. It is like that saying goes by Martin Niemöller

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

All 12 year olds should require parental guidance where abortion is concerned.

Now there is a sentence i never thought i would be writing.

But when the mother is part of the problem social work will need to step in an help the poor child come to the correct decision for herself. My opinion being 12 year olds, especially emotionally scared 12 year olds are hardly capable of taking care of a baby let alone give it any kind of life so abortion might be the best option.

You don't have a civilized society, just the delusion that you do. Gun violence, rape, murders, child exploitation..etc and from fellow Americans not just refugee and illegals, that does not sound like a civilized society.

It is just that western society just hides their atrocities better than 2nd or 2rd world countries.
