Senator Proposes National Parental Notification Law

Despite Republicans declaring that abortion laws should be set by the state, a new push at the federal level is on the way to create a national law when it comes to parental notification for teen abortions.

Via Feminist Daily News:

On Monday, Senator John Boozman (R-AR) introduced a bill that would require that the parents of minors seeking abortion services be notified by certified mail and that doctors wait at least four days before performing an abortion. Doctors who do not abide by the requirement could be fined up to $1 million and have to serve up to 10 years in prison.

Just so we’re clear, anti-choice activists think every state should get to set their own laws about restricting abortions, but if those laws aren’t restrictive enough, a federal law should be in place instead.

    ~ The only thing that makes a christian, republican, conservative, pro-lifer hornier than an under age girl giving birth is a raped under age girl giving birth. My christian republican father would have been on cloud nine if I had gotten pregnant and he could go on a sexual torture power trip by making me stay pregnant and give birth against my will.


    He would have been perverted and hateful through the whole pregnancy, birth, and after birth. These men are sexual tortures of under age girls and they use pregnancy and birth as their sexual torture instrument to do it.


    Little girls being forced to breed against their will really, really is pro-lifer porn, and these christian men in Washington who cannot get pregnant has no business trying to force under age girls to give birth against their will, they are nothing but child sex offenders. They love all forms of rape on under age girls. ~
