Montana Voters Approve Initiative Requiring Parental Involvement for Abortion

Montana Kaimin: Ballot initiatives pass by wide margin, by Heather Jurva:

Montana voters approved all five ballot initiatives Tuesday, showing largely unified opinion despite controversy in the months leading to the election.

One of the measures that passed, LR120, restricts the ability of minors under the age of 16 to receive a confidential abortion. In the past, girls as young as 13 could end their pregnancies without parental involvement. For organizations such as Planned Parenthood of Montana, it is seen as a blow to the safety of young women in abusive situations. . . .
