How did we ever get to the position in our country that a person that is under the age of 18 can determine ON THEIR OWN to terminate the life of a child without any parental notification, but that same person cannot walk into a store and buy a lighter? Or cough medicine? Or any number of things?

The argument against telling a parent for safety reasons just smacks of hypocrisy as well. You are protecting a child who is about to kill a child?

Legislation! Each state determines its own policies, at least for now. Hence, the current governor of NY, Andrew Cuomo, is introducing a bill to provide on demand in this state. AFAIK, this is not the policy in all states ... yet. You still have an opportunity to voice your opinion in your state.

Can they get a tattoo, which may be considered a form of speech?
