Lefties: Don’t Protect Teens

Yesterday, the House passed the Child Custody Protection Act (S. 403) by a vote of 264-153, designed to provide parental notification for underage abortions. The Family Research Council had this to say:

"I applaud the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Child Custody Protection Act today. While Senators Reid and Durbin obstructed this bill from moving forward in July, I am confident that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and his colleagues will move to pass this bill and get it to the president who is eager to sign it into law. The Senate must protect the rights of parents and the welfare of minor girls nationwide. This is the only pro-life legislation considered by Congress this session, and the Senate must get it done."

But, of course, the Leftists are having a hissy fit:

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure that combines the Child Custody Protection Act, which was passed by the U.S. Senate this past summer, with provisions substantially similar to the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, which was passed by the House of Representatives last year. This callous legislation, more aptly called The Teen Endangerment Act, could endanger teens and violate their constitutional rights. Vicki Saporta, president and CEO of the National Abortion Federation, released the following statement condemning this harmful legislation:

Tonight, Members of the U.S. House of Representatives chose anti-choice politics over protecting the health and safety of our teens with their passage of the Teen Endangerment Act. This legislation would make it a federal crime for a person other than a parent to help a minor from certain states obtain an abortion in another state if the minor has not fulfilled the parental involvement requirements of her home state.

In many cases where a teen is not comfortable involving her parent, she reaches out to trusted aunts, sisters, grandmothers, or other friends as a resource. However, the Teen Endangerment Act effectively removes this alternative and prohibits anyone except a parent from taking a minor across certain state lines for an abortion if the teen has not already met her home state's parental involvement requirements. As a result, a teen may be compelled to pursue drastic alternatives in order to avoid involving her parents, or she may encounter dangerous delays as she attempts to navigate the legal system and obtain a judicial bypass.

Typical. Give Rights where Rights do not exist, all for the sake of their God, Abortion. Take the parents out of the loop. Allow children to make life altering decisions on their own.

If I'm under 18, and get busted for drinking, my parents are notified. Why are my Constitutional Right to my choice to drink being violated? It is certainly none of my parents business, right? Ooops, I forgot, I'm underage. A minor.

The Left really does worship at the alter of Abortion. It is their number one issue.

Stop The ACLU highlights an ACLU attorney pushing someone to have an abortion. Sickening.

    As i’ve posted before, the most danger that America faces comes from the anti-everything democratic party. They will lie, cheat and steal to get a vote, and worse they are getting out soldiers killed daily to satisfy their wounded ego’s and in hope of gaining a vote.

  2. Ogre says:

    Absolutely right — abortion is their shrine and no one shall violate it, except that they then shall be ejected forcefully from the Democrat Party.

  3. William Teach says:

    I would have to agree with you, scrapiron. Terrorists can kill us in bunched, and hurt us. Democrats and their insanity can destroy.

    Ogre, it is amazing still to me that a whole national political party could have abortion as their #1 issue.

    That’s because the liberals love to f**k and f**k and f**k and f**k and f**k and f**k and f**k and f**k…and f**k until it hurts and then f**k some more! Is it any wonder why they love abortions so much?

  5. William Teach says:

    Forgot one thing, Macker. Before and after, they refuse to take responsibility.
