United Kingdom Parents Have No Right To Know if Children Under 16 Are Advised On Abortion

A United Kingdom parent of five children lost her legal fight Monday for a parent's right to know if girls under 16 are being advised on abortion. Judge Mr. Justice Silber, sitting in London, ruled that parents had no right to know unless the child decided otherwise. He said to force a girl to tell her parents “may lead her to make a decision that she later regrets or seek the assistance of an unofficial abortionist”. Source:  DailyRecord.co.uk.
