Florida Votes To Protect Minors From Receiving An Abortion

A grueling battle for the unborn is raging on political floors all over the nation!

We have seen states speak out like never before against the atrocities of Roe v. Wade.

While liberals are pushing for more extreme abortion laws than we have ever seen, conservatives are not backing down – and we have seen this most recently in Florida.

Following an emotional presentation and debate on the divided Florida House floor, a law was approved requiring minors to obtain parental consent to receive an abortion. 

Parents are supposed to be the guides, protectors, and confidantes of their children when they are minors; making decisions for them that pass their developmental understanding.

It is ludicrous a measure like this one even had to be brought up, and argued for nonetheless. 

But that is the world we are living in. One where the sanctity of life has to be defended, and parents have to fight to maintain their role in the family. 

Bill SB 404 protects young women and girls under the age of 18 by requiring a notarized approval from a parent or legal guardian, or gaining consent from a judge before killing their child in the womb, according to the Tallahassee Democrat, part of the USA Today network.

Rep. Erin Grall of Vero Beach sponsored the measure and she spoke in defense of the bill saying:

 It is indisputable that abortion ends a life, and the decision to end a life is permanent and life-altering not only for the baby, but for the girl, the father and the family.”

Thankfully, the House is Republican controlled allowing the bill to pass 75-43.

Those opposing the bill claim the measure is in violation of a 1989 decision by justices who overturned a similar law, concluding it violated one’s privacy.

A pregnancy in a minor is not something they should keep “private.”

The worst part is, they obviously have to discuss this life-altering event with someone to receive an abortion, liberals are just saying it doesn’t have to be you as the parent!

One foster mom, according to the Tallahassee Democrat, explained how she thought the law made it difficult for abused teens to get an abortion. 

I think she is missing the point here. 

The law makes it so no teen goes through further abuse by going through the irrevocable trauma of an abortion. 

Killing a child in the womb is not the answer to a minor’s life stressors, or any women’s stressors for that matter. 

Rep. Joe Geller, D-Aventura, tried to say that restricting a minor from having an abortion without their parent’s knowledge is making “their lives hell.

What an awful perspective to bringing a life into the world!

Other politicians expressed concern for young girls who don’t have a stable home environment with supportive parents.

The ACLU tries to claim that minors who can’t receive an abortion are subject to bear the cost of raising a child or are kicked out of the home. 

The amount of minors that seek an abortion after rape is so small that there is not a running statistic to account for them. 

While it is true some children don’t have the ideal home life, it goes back to how killing your child in the womb is never the answer. 

Most abortions by minors are because the young girl doesn’t want to bear the responsibilities her actions have caused. 

A society that teaches children they can do anything they want because the government is going to clean up your mess when you are done is going to have a rude awakening. 

Young girls who get pregnant need to know that despite their unconventional and difficult situation, a life is valuable and worthy of love. 

This is the support they need, not lonely walks of shame into a death clinic.
