Parental notice bill sent back to committee in N.C.
RALEIGH, N.C. — A bill restricting teenagers’ access to medical and mental health care initially scheduled for a vote in the North Carolina last week was taken off the calendar and sent back to the Judiciary Committee, LGBTQ Nation reported.
The bill would prohibit youth under 18 from receiving prevention, diagnosis and treatment information on pregnancy and abortion, STDs, HIV/AIDS, mental health and substance abuse without the express written and notarized consent of their parent or guardian, the site reported.
Some LGBT North Carolina activists said the bill would have especially bad ramifications for gay and trans teens who may be estranged from their parents, the article said.
