    they made an exception for abortions with parental consent. I thought to them 'every zygote is sacred'. To be consistent, they should have made parents who consent to their daughter's abortion watch while she got an ultrasound anyway. See, the parents might not have understood that it was a real live fetus they were consenting to abort.

    Is it somehow not an abortion when the parents consent to it? Is it ok because the parents own their daughter, and this exception preserves parents property rights?

    Maybe the asshats just didn't think it through.  

    Or maybe they just knew they would have one hell of a lot of very angry parents on their hands if they did something like that. Very angry and very vocal parents.
