Child Interstate Abortion Act Introduced in Congress
Senators Marcus Rubio of Florida and Orrin Hatch of Utah have introduced a bill that would make it a crime to take a minor across a state line to help her obtain an abortion, and would fine or imprison a provider who performed an abortion on a teen from a parental consent or notification state if that provider doesn’t seek out the teen’s parents before the procedure.
For many teens without local access to services, the closest provider may in fact be in a different state, regardless of laws, putting more burden on the teen to have to delay a procedure that gets more complicated as the pregnancy progresses.
The first comment at that link pretty much sums up what I was thinking:
“What if that child… was raped by a parent? it happens. Where is she to go? This is way to invasive and gee are these GOP ers not for Big Government invading everyones lives like a virus? Could have fooled me.
Welcome the new GOP christian taliban, right here in the USA folks!”
