|Poor girl. :(|
I don't think so. See, in my opinion, my parents have nothing to do with it. Therefore, it is unnecessary for them to need to know. I think that if I want an abortion, I should be able to do it without my parents allowing me to. Actually, I probably wouldn't even tell them if I was to get an abortion. First of all, I wouldn't get one in the first place, because I don't really believe in it. Seeing as if you were old enough to have sex in the first place, you should hold the responsibility of having a child. Just in case. Because no mean of contraception is 100%. Obviously, there is a chance, albeit a small one, but there's still on there. Unless the girl/woman has been raped or something. Then, that is a totally different story. I would totally understand a female wanting to get an abortion for a pregnancy caused by rape. Heck, I'd probably do it too!
But, anyways, this post is not about whether abortion is right or wrong. This is about a parent's right to know about it and give consent. It is completely unnecessary. If the girl does not want to tell her parents, she shouldn't have to. And, if she decides to have an abortion, it is not the parents' concern whatsoever. It isn't the parents having the baby, is it? It's none of their business. Also, it's the girl's body. She should be able to choose what she wants to do with it. So, the parents should butt out and let her decide.
Abortion is not an easy thing to go through. And parents being there to badger the girl about whether it is right or wrong isn't going to help the situation. I know that parents mean well and just want the best for their child. But sometimes, they've got to learn to give their child some space. She can't possibly have the baby if she's in High School. That would really blow. Seriously. If I'm in High School, I don't have time for a baby. I have schoolwork and a relationship and a job to juggle. A baby added to the mix will screw everything up. Not that I don't like babies or anything, but it's not rocket science to know that they are very expensive and a handful. Don't get me wrong, I love babies. No joke. I literally can't wait until I'm older to get married and have one. But, now, I know that I don't have the time. Also, I'm not mature enough for a baby. I want to go out, to party... to live a destructive wild young adult life for a few years(which will probably not be destructive at all.) and then have a baby.
So, abortion should not need parental consent. What do you think?
PS: OMG. I love babies. >:O

PPPS: Oooh I'm so odd.
