  •  If my 13 year old got pregnant (0+ / 0-)

    ... and felt like she couldn't tell me, I'd be upset if she could NOT get an abortion if she wanted one. I would be more upset about someone compounding the grief of a raped child by forcing them through hoops than I would about my personal "right to know."

    Would I want to know? Yes. But I have a 13 year old girl. There is a darned good reason Judaism considers 13-year-olds adults... and at 12, she was very nearly as competent. I am far more concerned about the "good judgment" of a 13 year old who decides to "keep the baby" than I am with a 12 year old deciding to get an abortion but too scared to tell Mom.

    I do not believe there are many states left which do NOT consider sex at 12 or 13 to be rape.

    I make milk. What's your superpower?
