How do you feel about FOCA and the fact that minors won't need parental consent to get an abortion? Think carefully about your answer and think about it being YOUR daughter, then answer. How would you feel if your own DD was able to get an abortion (a surgical proceedure) without your consent? *please, no sanctimonious 'My DD would come to me if she were pg", since you really don't know what kids will do*

I am TOTALLY outraged at the prospect! They are still minors under your care, custody and control! I'll fight this all the way! My oldest daughter is 22 on Tuesday, so I have no say there, but for my 16 year old, oh no freakin way ANYONE will be allowed to do ANY procedure on her without my consent! PERIOD. What happens if something happened to the child during the surgical procedure, who is responsible then? This whole thing is insanity if you ask me! The brain isn't even fully developed until age 21, so they do NOT have the ability to fully rationalize ANY decision they make, they aren't developed to know the rationale behind any choice. I'm totally outraged at the notion of this!

cluelesscarrie.......NO. I have five children, my oldest will be 22 as I said prior. My other daughter is 16. Though both of my daughters are very much pro-life, like grlygrlz stated, we as the parents MUST have the opportunity to discuss the options with OUR daughters. My children and I have VERY open communication (sometimes too open with my adult child - lol ), to take MY rights away as MY CHILDRENS MOM is not only a moral dilemma, it is a civil right violation! It is a decision between PARENT AND CHILD, NOT the government giving them an out to hide things and have procedures done that put their physical life in jeopardy not to mention their emotional and mental health at risk! NOPE!
