Parental Notification

A law in California says that "Children under 14 are banned from using tanning salons, unless they have a doctor's note, and those 14 to 18 need parental permission to receive a tan." (HT: The Corner).

In 1997 the California Supreme Court ruled that the requirement of parental consent before a minor's abortion was unconstitutional.

So to recap this sick scenario: if you are a girl between ages 14-18 in California, you need your parent's permission to receive a tan, but if you don't need it in order to kill your unborn child.
