Ask the Missouri House to protect underage girls from abortion
The Missouri House will soon vote on a HB 1383 which would require that both parents be notified if their child is seeking an abortion. Although we must always work towards completely outlawing any abortions in our country, any restriction is a step in the right direction to save lives!
Please sign this petition to the Missouri legislature asking them to pass this legislation into law in order to protect more underage girls and their babies from abortion.
A study conducted at the University of Alabama found that parental involvement laws cut down on underage abortions by 15 percent.
Obviously, we don’t think any teenagers or any adults should have abortions. However, this hurdle will slow down the abortion machine and give young women valuable time to consider (with their families) whether or not they should kill their unborn babies!
Tragically, the abortion industry targets teenage girls. Last year, Teen Vogue, a fashion magazine aimed at 15 to 18-year-old girls published an article titled, “What to Get a Friend Post-Abortion.” In the article the author normalizes abortion and says it’s the right choice for many teenagers and doesn’t need to be a big deal.
But we know the truth. Abortion is always a big deal. It’s a big deal because every abortion results in the death of a child and the damaging of the mother. In this case, a very young mother who will be affected for the rest of her life.
That’s why parental notification laws are important. Besides ending the life of an unborn child, abortion is a major procedure. Minors need parental consent for other major medical procedures. What possible justification could be given for making an exception for this even more major and more risky procedure?!
Wouldn’t it seem logical that the parents of a teenager should know if their grandchild is going to be aborted, via a procedure that can have serious negative consequences for their daughter?
But again, this is merely a limitation on abortion, which we are thankful for and support because of the lives that will be saved. However, we must never stop fighting for the unborn until abortion in completely outlawed in our country.
Please join in asking the Missouri legislature to pass HB 1383.
