Some other key facts about abortion in Maryland are:
- Minors seeking abortions in Maryland need notify only one parent. Note that they must only "notify" the parent, not seek his/her consent. However, even that can be waived if the doctor believes the minor is capable of giving informed consent. Of course the doctor has a financial interest in performing the abortion. How convenient for the abortionist!
- Maryland is one of three states that don't require abortionists to report their procedures.
- According to Vicki Saporta, president of the National Abortion Federation, "The state respects a woman's right to make her own decisions about an unwanted pregnancy while providing good access to safe practices." Consider the source and understand what that truly says about Maryland.
