UPDATE: Check out this excerpt from a KTUU news story...great reasoning by Gov. Palin:
"The governor argues that teens are required to get permission for small things like pierced ears. 'Yet a very invasive surgical procedure can take place on this girl and her body without parental consent,' Palin said."
Also, kudos to State Rep. Fred Dyson, who says he plans to introduce an amendment the state constitution to overrule the courts decision.
Alaska's Supreme court has struck down the state's decade-old law requiring parental consent for abortions performed on girls under the age of 16 (click here for report). Governor Palin called the decision "outrageous" and said that the court "failed Alaska by separating parents from their children during such a critical decision". She also instructed Alaska's Attorney General, Talis Colberg, to file a petition for a rehearing.
I will keep close tabs on this outrage and will update you if and when more information becomes available.
