Bill English is calling for a law-change to require parental consent for abortions performed on under 16-year-olds. Of course, he's doing this to "promote the role of parents" rather then out of opposition to abortion.

Yeah, right.

Parental consent laws mean parents forcing their children to have children. They treat young girls in bad circumstances like brood mares. Bill English may be fine with that, but I regard it as a fundamental insult to human dignity.
