Parental Coercion is Illegal

“I’ve made the appointment and am taking you for an abortion.” Many young girls hear these words, and abortion clinics nationwide are more than ready to collaborate with bullying parents.

Now, Priests for Life is collaborating with The Justice Foundation and Life Dynamics to provide for such girls the legal tools they need to protect themselves and their children. A standard letter has been prepared, informing parents that they are subject to legal liability if they force their daughter to abort. Crimes like fetal homicide or civil torts like battery, negligence, and false imprisonment can be incurred.

Likewise, a letter is available that can be sent to abortion clinics saying the clinic can be subject to various forms of criminal prosecution and/or civil liability for performing the abortion on that girl.
