It is one thing if a full grown, adult woman decides to get an abortion, but it is another thing for a minor to decide to get one. Until someone turns twenty one years old then their brain is still developing. Minors also lack the experiences and knowledges adults would have. I support this not because I am necessarily because I against abortion, which I'm not entirely against it, but because of the fact the child could make a decision they may regret latter on or put her in a potentially dangerous situation. In order to protect children from making mistakes they may come to regret or put themselves in harms way, then we need to take steps to defend them from these dangers and this bill is a good start.
