In America, minors cannot legally:
- Get a fake tan
- Drink alcohol
- Buy a lottery ticket
- Rent a car, or
- Open a library card (in some areas)
…Without their parents consenting, or until they are 18. BUT any girl under 18 can get an abortion without her parents knowing. I could abort my parent’s grandchild without them knowing, but they have to be there for me to open a library card. Huh?
America has an issue figuring out what’s really important here. Should it REALLY be more important for a girls parents to help her open a library account, or for them to know about her bearing their grandchild and choosing to abort that baby? What are your thoughts on it?
