See this study here that shows parental consent laws help reduce abortions anywhere from 19% - 31%: http://www.lifenews.com/state3492.html And let me ask, which political party has been largely responsible for enacting such laws? And which political party has been largely responsible for opposing such laws and/or reversing them? And where does Obama stand on this issue? How about McCain? Just some food for thought for those who think there is absolutely "no difference" between the two parties. Thank God for those parental consent laws that have saved many, many innocent lives.
