8%

Leave it to California to lead the way in all things health related. The first to ban smoking in restaurants and bars and now Gov. Jerry Brown has signed in a law banning anyone under 18 from using a tanning bed.

So, your sweet 16 year old daughter won’t be able to tan in a bed before spring break, but if she comes home knocked up from that same spring break…well she can take care of that pesky problem by getting an abortion. Best part is she doesn’t even have to worry about her parents finding out because parental consent is not required.

Is it just me, or does it seem like priorities are completely out of whack when it’s OK to let a teenage girl to get an abortion, and not use a tanning bed.

Oh, another tidbit, California’s abortion rate is 8% higher than the national average.

    It’s all about taking parental rights away and putting the government in charge of the things our children can or cannot do. Apparently the government thinks they can do a better job raising our children (just ask Hilary). The other thing California is trying to do is make it legal for girl’s, 12 years and up, to receive the HPV vaccine without parental consent. So, not only are tanning beds banned for those under 18, but apparently it is okay and legal for children to get abortions and vaccines without their parents knowledge or consent. There goes any chance for open communication between parents and children.
