A legal guardian may provide the legal consent instead of the parents, and if the patient is independent and meets the requirements the rule may be by-passed. Also, if the patient is a victim of sexual violence, and it is reported properly, one may also be excused from the rule (Planned Parenthood Federation of America Inc., 2009).

Different views on abortion have been a widespread controversy for decades, in my eyes abortion is wrong. Aborting an unborn baby should be illegal and is becoming illegal in many states now. A fetus is a human being and humans have rights, so the law should protect the unborn. There are many to prevent unwanted pregnancies and other options besides abortion. Another way to make the number of teen abortions would be if teenagers started taking birth control.
These people are known as "Pro-Choicers." Another Forty percent of the American people believe that it should be banned except when the pregnancy threatens the life of the mother or is the result of rape or incest. These people are considered "Pro-Lifers. "1 There are also many who believe abortion should be banned completely, and there are those who are undecided. Today, abortion is deliberated as a women's own right and choice.
Through out the history of the constitution of california there has been a number of attempts to change how abortion in teens is handled. Proposition 4 intends to give the parents the right to know when their unmancipated teens want to get an abortion. some supporters of this proposition argue that it will save lives and money for the state. People against it say is more dangerous to teens because they could be driven to use not regulated clinics and or to run away from home. In this research paper we will go through both points of view, and also the implications of continuing with the current constitution or changing it as the proposition 4 dictates.
Due to abusive homes, older 17-year-olds are willing to wait and not get parental consent until their 18th birthday when they don’t have to get any kind of consent form in order to obtain an abortion. This is only causing later-term abortions. Lastly, to get down to the root, which is unwanted teen pregnancies, public, accurate sex education would do a great deal for young teens to be capable of making better decisions about their health and well-being. If accurate and helpful sex education was an option for every teen, better choices would be made, there would be a major drop in the amount of unintended teen pregnancies. If this was an option, abortions would not be needed as much, and neither would parental consent requirements.
New slide Many states have enacted, or are considering, laws that restrict teenagers' access to abortion by requiring parental involvement in the abortion decision. Such laws include: „X Parental notification laws that require medical personnel to notify a minor's parent(s) of her i... ... middle of paper ... ...el forced to have a baby against her wishes; her parents may turn their backs on her or force her out of their home; or she might run away from home to face her pregnancy alone. Some teens may resort to a secret, unsafe, illegal or self-induced abortion if her way to a confidential, legal abortion is blocked. Any additional state laws restricting abortion (such as mandatory waiting periods between abortion counseling and abortion procedures) are doubly burdensome for teenage women who have fewer resources, less privacy, and less ability to meet all the requirements. All such restrictions to a woman's access to safe and legal abortion rob her of her ability to take control of her life.
Teenage pregnancy significantly impacts an adolescent’s education, as well as the goals they have set for themselves. Parental involvement is sometimes overlooked by the teen while deciding if abortion is the right choice. Most teenagers have access to obtain an abortion without their parents’ permission because some states consider a pregnant teen an adult. When states consider a pregnant adolescent an adult, the teen has the authority to make their own decisions. One reason why abortion is a chosen procedure by young adults is to continue their education and receive an ideal career in the future.

These bills come with shocking questions that can be argued if the right of women and young teens are denied certain rights under the constitution. My view when it comes to abortion relates to the situation if severe problems occur that is threatening the life of the expectant mom. In certain issues like when women or young teens are raped they should be given the option to abort the unwanted pregnancy from a criminal act.
Abortion, one of the most controversial issues in the United States today, should remain legal because it helps to regulate population levels, keep unwanted children from being born, neglected, beaten or abandoned and in some cases it can also reduce divorce rates. Abortions can be practical for potential parents who do not have the money, time or experience to raise a child at this point in time in their life (especially teenagers). Women who have been raped also may have an abortion because she can not bear to a child that she did not willing conceive. Abortions are further more used to save the life of the mother. Abortion is defined as, the induced termination of a pregnancy followed by the death of the embryo or fetus.
My Human Rights issue is Abortion the United States. The definition of abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. I personally do not believe in abortion. The human rights being violated are the taking of a life. Most women get abortion because they believed that a baby will affect their working, or schooling.
