Legal Regulation of Adolescent Abortion.
Melton, Gary B.
American Psychologist, v42 n1 p79-83 Jan 1987
Legislators often have established special procedures for judicial or parental involvement in adolescent abortion decisions. While ostensibly protecting pregnant minors' psychological health, and increasing the competency of decision making, judicial bypass and parental notification promote neither goal. At best, they are benign but costly and purposeless. (Author/LHW)
