Ask the Health Educator: Parental Consent for Service

Question from April 8, 2013:

What if you want to know if you’re pregnant and say you are, but you have no other choice but to go through an abortion. Do you need parental consent?

Answer:

Parental consent for an abortion is an issue that is best addressed by a clinic that provides those services. I would suggest that you do an Internet search or look in the yellow pages for a facility in your area that provides abortion services, give them a call and ask what the requirements are in order to have the procedure, if that is the decision that you have made.
