From Our Pro-Life Committee: Studies Prove Parental Intervention Saves Lives.
Numerous studies reveal that parental advice and involvement drastically decrease teen
abortions. A study by Dr. Michael New demonstrated that parental intervention laws have
produced a 15% decline in minors’ abortions, and up to 30% in some states. “Of course,
the waiting period also gives the girl time to rethink, with counsel from parents or other
trusted adults, whether or not she even wants to go through with an abortion,” said
National Pro-Life Alliance Executive Director Jenni Harris. States with similar parental
involvement laws already in place have in fact seen drops in teen abortion rates. In
Minnesota, for instance, their teen abortion rate dropped 28%. Texas saw their rate drop
30%, Virginia, likewise, saw at 20% decrease in abortion overall.
