The passing of SB 404 prohibits minors to get an abortion without parental consent. This puts in danger the lives of underage girls and potentially puts them in a situation that would lead them to become mothers at a young age even though they are not financially or emotionally ready in any way. It will likely cause an increase in illegal abortions, putting an UNDERAGE CHILD’s life at risk, harming both their mental and physical health. It is unfair that the accountability is solely on the underage girl, forcing her to continue a pregnancy, and there are no mandates on what will be done to help that girl support her child both financially and emotionally. By passing this law, you are ruining more lives than saving. Families who force their daughter to continue her pregnancy are only causing her more harm, and there is not even accountability to the father. Both parents will be forced to bring a child in this world with no means of support, destroying the life of not only those parents, but the child as well. Additionally, the mandating of how women should decide to control their bodies should be banned. It is not up to men in power to decide what women can and can’t do with their own bodies, and there is no scientific research that implies that a zygote is equal to a real human life. You are passing this law on a false premise that you know will not affect you in any way, but will affect several underage girls across the state. These are CHILDREN with their lives ahead of them. The lives of your actual citizens and your potential citizens are being put at risk with this law: please consider repealing it, as it’s mandates will do significantly more harm than good. (For the regards of inclusivity, although I used the words “mother” and “girl” throughout the description, I understand that some people with uteruses who do not identify as female will also be affected by this law. I see you and I will continue fighting for the rights of trans people who are affected by laws that most people see fit for only cis people. You are equally worthy of protection, especially from any laws trying to prohibit your choice of what you want to do with your own body.)
