Montana: Vote NO on L.R. 120
November 2, 2012
If you’re a Montana resident, PRCH urges you to vote no on ballot initiative L.R. 120, a parental notification bill that would endanger already vulnerable young women.
PRCH supports confidential healthcare for minors. We oppose parental consent and notification laws, because they are harmful to the health of adolescents, as they result in delay and restricted access to timely medical care. Read our policy statement on parental involvement laws.
The majority of pregnant minors who decide to have an abortion voluntarily involve at least one parent. The young women who choose not to tell a parent do so for a number of good reasons, including fear of abuse or abandonment. The Montana initiative would hurt those teens. This November, vote no on L.R. 120.

“[A]ll people, male and female, should have as much autonomy as possible and the best medical care feasible. That means caring and competent physicians in each community should provide abortions.”
