American Academy of Pediatrics will oppose attempts to add parental notification laws for abortion
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has "reaffirmed" its opposition to parental consent laws on abortion, saying that adolescents have a "right" to get an abortion without letting their mom or dad know.
In a statement published in the February issue of Pediatrics, the AAP claims that parental notification laws "do not achieve the intended benefit of promoting family communication."
