Alaskans approve parental notification law backed by bishops
Catholic World News - August 27, 2010
By a 55%-44% margin, Alaska voters on August 24 approved a measure requiring teens to notify their parents before having an abortion.
“I was happy to see that common sense prevailed,” said Archbishop Roger Schwietz told of Anchorage. “Parents, no matter where they are on the abortion issue, understood: to be parent is to be a parent. You have responsibility for your children and therefore you should be able to know what they’re doing, and not have other people take away the right to know.”
