:: This one is in the form of H.R. 35 in Alaska, a bill which seeks to require parental consent for anyone under 17 to receive an abortion. And as you might have presumed, the bill is supported by Sarah Palin. From the Anchorage Daily News:
Gov. Sarah Palin on Thursday threw her support behind a controversial bill that would generally require parental consent before girls under age 17 could get an abortion.
"Wherever you fall on the abortion issue, right or left, this legislation is about family, and it's about parents' rights and protecting our children, and it's supported by legislators on both sides of the aisle."
