Oddly enough, there seems to be only two areas where liberals are intent on treating minors like adults: abolishing age of consent laws by insisting that minors have a constitutional right to have sex with adults, and making abortion available without parental consent or even notification.
Coincidence? I don't think so. One of the troubling aspects to all of this is the enormous number of adult men who impregnate minors--and I am not talking about 19 year old guys and 17 year old girls. I'm talking about 30 year old guys and 13 year old girls. Planned Parenthood has played a major part in making sure that these crimes don't come to light. You might almost think that there's some connection between the "abolish age of consent laws" and "no parental consent or notification for abortions".
