Wash. High School Clinic Arranges Student's Abortion -- Without Notifying Her Parents
A high school in Washington state arranged for a 15-year old student to get an abortion (in secret, during school hours) after her in-school pregnancy test came back positive. Her mother was not notified, and was never even informed of the pregnancy until after the abortion. Read more from the CBN:
A mother in Washington state is furious after a health care center at a public high school helped her daughter have an abortion without her consent or knowledge.
The mother, identified as "Jill," says her 15-year-old daughter took a pregnancy test at the Ballard High School Teen Health Center in Seattle.
When the test came back positive, officials did not notify the parent. Instead, the girl was sent to an abortion clinic
Another reminder: Parental notification laws are important - always!
