Bill would restrict teens' access to pregnancy, other health care

Young people wouldn’t be able to get medical treatment for pregnancy, venereal disease, substance abuse or mental illness without their parents’ or guardian’s written consent, under a bill filed this week.

SB675 adds those restrictions to the state law that already requires unemancipated minors receive that permission before they can have abortions.

NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina issued a statement Thursday saying such a law would deny youths access to confidential and potentially life-saving health care.

The bill’s sponsors are Sen. Warren Daniel of Morganton, Sen. Shirley Randleman of Wilkesboro, Sen. Buck Newton of Wilson and Sen. Chad Barefoot, who represents parts of Wake and Franklin counties. All are Republicans.
