Ottawa, ON - Young girls need the protection of caring parents or guardians. Without the involvement or consent of parents, it is easier for child predators to use abortion to cover up criminal behaviour.

“Parents need to be alerted to the potential bullying and abuse their daughter may be experiencing,” said campaign spokesman Mike Schouten. “Teenage girls who obtain abortions in secret often do so at the behest of others who bully them into making decisions that they might not want to make. Because this is occurring with no knowledge of parents, it is very likely that these girls will return to the coercive partner that bullied them to abort.”

“Parental consent for abortion legislation will not prevent women from requesting and receiving an abortion.  It will not stop abortion from occurring. It will not make abortion illegal,” continued Schouten.

“Rather, when drafted to withstand the test of constitutionality, a parental consent law will protect the health and welfare of minors, as well as foster family unity and protect the constitutional rights of parents to raise their children and be involved in the steps of that process. With the loving support of their parents, many young women will be able to bring their babies into the world and not face the physical risks and emotional devastation that an abortion can bring.”
