Ask the Governor to Veto Secret Abortions

            The state legislature recently passed SB 2296, the Confidential Healthcare (aka secret abortions) bill. Now it moves on to a conference committee, and then the Governor's desk, where he will choose whether to sign or veto it.

             This legislation would require certain "sensitive health care services," which are "[defined] with the advice of ... experts in the fields of "reproductive and sexual health"  that are paid for by insurance companies be kept secret from the owner of the policy. So, if a child on a parent's insurance were to have an abortion, the policy owner would be financially responsible, but the services would not be disclosed to the policy owner without the consent of the child.  

            This legislation is an affront to parental rights, and the involvement of parents in their children's medical care, which government should be encouraging, not discouraging. It's clear the intent of this Planned Parenthood-sponsored bill is to ensure as many roadblocks to abortion (including the potential of future disclosure to parents) as possible are cleared from the abortion industry's path. 

            What can you do? Take 30 seconds to email the governor and lieutenant governor, letting them know you're in favor of parental involvement and not secret keeping.
