Hearing begins on law requiring parental notification for teen abortions

.- A spokesperson for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops applauds the Constitution Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee for beginning hearings on the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, March 3. The act would require abortion doctors to notify parents before doing abortions on teenaged girls from out-of-state unless parental involvement or judicial authorization under the girl's home state law has been satisfied.

Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R—Fl.) introduced the bill, with 105 original cosponsors.

“The overwhelming majority of Americans believe parents should be involved in abortion decisions involving their teenaged daughters,” said Cathy Cleaver Ruse, Esq., director of planning and information for the USCCB’s Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities.

“It is wrong to take a child away from her parents to another state for a secret abortion, yet abortion advocates support this practice and admit that it happens all the time,” she said.
