I don't think someone is mature enough to make that decision at such a young age. I think it should be more in line with the drinking she, 21, and parental consent should be necessary until then.

Agree? Disagree? Weigh in!

Um no. At 18 you are capable of making choices regarding your own body.

I don't think there should be parental consent laws regarding abortion at all.

uh nope, 18 is legally an adult, they don't need mommy and daddy's permission  to decide what is best for their uterus

I disagree. There comes a point where you need to give up control.

By the way in most states even if you disagree and fight it, the courts will grant her the right to get an abortion if she truly wants one.  

Ah yes, that's a lovely happy thought. Yes it is.

Disagree, but I don't believe the drinking age should be 21 either.

Stupid. 18 is legal age and when you stop needing parental consent for anything. Personally I don't think anyone should be forced to have a kid. Especially someone under age.
