    I think the judge must have a minor he’s been tapping on the side and he wants to make sure he’s not going to get busted himself when he has to coerce her to get an abortion under her parents’ noses. Or he has a few friends doing it that he wants to protect. Or he loves child abuse and thinks it should be legal to. He obviously has no respect for young girls or their parents.

    This is sickening.

    So, is Hizzoner also prepared to retroactively uphold the Dred Scott decision?

    Most of these laws got passed because of a teenager named Becky Bell. She got pregnant, decided not to tell her parents, and tried to get a judicial bypass for an abortion. Supposedly, she was turned down, supposedly had an illegal abortion, got a massive infection, and died of pneumonia. Her parents became pretty strident activists against parental consent laws. There were some problems, though, that came out later. The medical records showed that she hadn’t had an abortion, illegal or not, but had had a miscarriage. The autopsy showed she definitely had pneumonia – but her reproductive organs were just fine, which rules out PID. No one ever found the person who supposedly gave her an illegal abortion.

    There is the slight problem of cases in which the minor was impregnated by her father or grandfather… Then again, most of the time the families in such cases (which I have seen, having worked in judicial systems) cannot wait for the girl to have an abortion so they can all pretend that it never, ever, ever happened…
