Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL, had this to say about legislation introduced June 21 in both the US House and Senate called “The Parents Right to Know Act,” which would require clinics receiving Title X federal funds to notify parents of minors seeking contraception at least five days before writing a prescription:
“Anti-birth control zealots behind this bill are determined to impose their values on others, even if it means more unintended pregnancies and an increased need for abortions.”
Is that a threat, Nancy, of increased abortions? Why? If abortions are so physically and psychologically beneficial to women and pose no moral dilemma, why would more abortions in America not be better?
