The mad dash to expand the mass killing of children is speeding up.

And it seems like the pro-abortion lobby will do almost anything to expand abortion.

Now this bill would allow girls under 16 to get abortions without parental consent.

Young girls under the age of 16 living in Western Australia (W.A.) will be able to get an abortion without their parents permission under proposed legislation introduced in the state’s Parliament.

Leading the pro-abortion lobby’s efforts 

The current law in W.A. requires a teenager under 16, who is still living at home or is dependent on a parent or guardian, to inform the parent or guardian if they are considering an abortion. 

And the parent or guardian must also take part in the conversation between the teenager and the doctor. 

However, even under current law the final decision still remains with the minor.

This is the case even though the age of consent in the Australian state is 16. 

Under current law, if a minor wants to get an abortion and does not want to inform her parents, she must file an application with the Children’s Court, according to The Daily Mail.

That is bad enough, but now officials want to expand abortion-on-demand to little girls with no involvement.

Of course, W.A. has been a leader in advancing the pro-abortion movement’s goals for more than 20 years. 

In 1998, W.A. became Australia’s first state or territory to decriminalize abortion, according to the news outlet.

From bad to worse

And now they are at it again, working to not just expand abortion-on-demand to minors, but also working to take away parental rights in the process. 

The Abortion Legislation Reform Bill 2023 would change current law by recognizing the warped concept of the mature minor.

Under this concept a young person, even under the age of 16,  supposedly has sufficient understanding and intelligence to consent to their own medical treatment. 

But under current law in W.A., a child under the age of 16 needs the written consent of a parent or guardian in order to have his or her ears pierced. 

Tattoos are also illegal for minors under 16 and even require written consent from a parent or guardian if the minor is between the ages of 16 and 18. 

Catherine Robinson, a spokesperson for Right to Life UK said, “It is baffling that parental consent is needed for a child to pierce their ears but, if this Bill passes, a child will be able to get an abortion without their parents even knowing.” 

“This is evidently untrue. Legal requirements should reflect the gravity of a decision and the choice to end the life of an unborn child is certainly a very grave one,” her statement concluded.

The new legislation in W.A. is just one more example of the radical pro-abortion movement’s efforts to expand abortion to even the youngest, and most vulnerable.

They could care less what damage their efforts do, or how many people are hurt by their radical pro-abortion agenda.
