One way around having all kids notifying their caregivers if they plan to have an abortion is for the girl to appeal before a Family or District Court judge to prevent her parents being told. The proposal is in Collins' SOP. Some Family Court hearing when the purpose of the court hearing is to exclude the family. Heh. GP's don't like this either. Perhaps that’s because a judge is no more qualified to make that decision than a GP - or a school counsellor for that matter. And what happens when the parents find out that their daughter has been to court?
Look, if kids don’t want to have abortions there's one easy answer: Don't get pregnant. The Family Planning Association - or more appropriately, the Sexual Activity Association - tells kids to use take the pill or use condoms. Yet you wonder why when they say in the same breath that over a 10-year period, 30 out of 100 people who have sex regularly will end up getting pregnant- and condom failure is even worse.
Have they ever thought to tell kids not to have sex?
Nah, probably not.
