Target the problem

Posted: Wednesday, February 12, 2003

Our

Juneau conservatives' exorbitant outlay of public time and money for their crusade to gradually criminalize abortion is misguided. Their current costly device, the parental consent law, is inept because it doesn't target the real problem. Teen abortion is a consequence of the problem. The actual problem needing solution is unplanned, teen pregnancy. If Sens. Dyson and Green and Reps. Dahlstrom and Lynn, et al will make us a law requiring that men (any age) obtain our written, parental consent in order to impregnate our teenage daughters, with indisputable legal consequences otherwise, I'll certainly jump on the parental consent bandwagon. That would be equal enough for me!
