The age of consent in states is when a young lady can get birth control and an abortion without a parent’s consent ,It can be in some states as low as 12 yrs old if an MD agree’s with it . But here’s where it starts to make no sense to me. In most if not all the states listed above If young lady steps in the school’s nurse’s office and ask for a simple aspirin the nurse has to call for her parents permission but in some states the same school nurse can take the same young lady to planned parenthood and help her get on birth control and /or an abortion without getting the parents permission , this makes no sense to me at all . The women rights groups will yell, she is an adult! Ok let’s think about that for a bit , If the young lady come to adulthood at lets say for sake of argument 14 then this mean she should be able to vote, get a drivers licences, move out on her own, be in the military and stand trial for crimes as an adult! Not one of the states listed will do any of this, there is one exception “stand trial for crimes as an adult” if the crime is murder.Then we have Obamacare . Obamacare seems to think this same young lady is not smart enough to find a job and get her own heath care till she is 25 yrs old, makes no sense to me at all, on one hand the government says she’s old to make a life or death decision but on the other hand not smart enough at 25 to get heath care.
I am pro-life I think all medical procedures should have parents permission if the child is below the age of 18
