Abortion Consent
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Republican lawmakers again are trying to
pass a bill critics say would make it too difficult for girls to
get an abortion without their parents' consent.
The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the legislation Tuesday
Governor Jennifer Granholm vetoed a similar measure in 2004.
The legislation would create guidelines for judges to consider

The bill also would prohibit a judge from granting a parental
consent waiver if the girl already has been denied one by another
