Parents are uniquely qualified to protect their children

In Saskatchewan parental consent is not required for a minor to receive an abortion. A new public awareness campaign was recently launched with a goal of changing that.

A procedure that can impact a young woman for the rest of her life can be done without any consent or even knowledge of her parent or guardian. This is regrettable and through this campaign it is hoped that awareness will be brought to this reality and an eventual change in law.

 The manner in which abortion is handled in Saskatchewan, particularly pertaining to minors, sits in stark contrast to how minors are treated when it comes to other matters dealing with the body.

Most health jurisdictions around the world have legislation that protects the vulnerability of minors by enacting parental consent for abortion legislation, including 39 of 50 states just south of us.

It is time for Saskatchewan to do likewise.

 

This public awareness campaign is a joint effort between Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association and WeNeedaLAW.ca. For more information please contact us here.
