We all know how pro-abortion judges "legislated" abortion-on-demand with Roe v. Wade.
But they haven't stopped there. When they handed down Roe v. Wade they included a hidden kill switch.
In order to keep their pro-abortion agenda, they insisted that legislatures couldn't limit abortion in any form without first giving the courts the right to carve out an exception in any given case.
They called it judicial bypass.
Take for example, an underage girl who gets pregnant and doesn't want her parents to find out.
Instead of dealing with the consequences, she goes before a judge and gets a judicial bypass so she can get an abortion without her parents' knowledge.
All so she won't have to deal with the embarrassment.
Just as the Supreme Court judges came down with the pro-abortion Roe v. Wade decision: you and I know that there are plenty of pro-abortion judges at both the state and federal level ready and eager to grant a rubber stamp to any girl seeking an abortion.
For example, under many state parental notification laws, judges have the power to grant judicial bypass if the judge determines that the minor is "mature enough" to have an abortion without consulting her parents.
Pro-abortion judges frequently take advantage of this type of vague criteria to readily bypass the parents for virtually any reason or no reason at all.
And don't think that abortion clinics don't know which judges will and won't do it.
In fact we know of abortionists who brag that no requests for judicial bypass in their area have been denied.
In Pennsylvania for instance, hundreds of petitions for bypasses are filed each year and only a handful are ever denied.
There is a solution.
That solution is the national Parental Notification and Intervention Act -- a federal law drafted by the National Pro-Life Alliance that would require "clear and convincing evidence of danger of physical abuse of the minor by the parent" before its provisions are waived by the judges.
Thus, not only would this law apply in all 50 states but it would remove the gray areas that allow pro-abortion judges to justify their rubber stamping of abortion.
With your continued support I am sure we will ultimately prevail and pass the Parental Notification and Intervention Act and the Life at Conception Act to end all abortion-on-demand.
