I have two daughters. I also have a view :) BBC Story
The High Court was told that Mrs Axon, 50, regretted undergoing a termination herself 20 years ago which caused her “guilt, shame and depression”.
Never ever impose your guilt and negative feelings on others. You will make out that it is for their benefit – you lie. It is trying to make you feel better about you. It’s ego. Don’t.
“It is incongruous to me that I am required to have to consent to my daughter having her belly button pierced while she can have an abortion without me even knowing.”
If a girl under 16 has not only got pregnant (which would indicate some sort of parental failure already) but has also then taken herself to the GP or an Advisory Clinic, and then discussed and agreed to a termination, then maybe they do not want you to know ? They will have been scared – yet not turned to you. That says a lot more about you than it does them.
“Her contention is much more modest. She merely says that as a matter of law she has the right to be notified – in shorthand, the case is about ‘the right to know’.”
Crap crap crap – she’d then run screaming to the courts to stop it saying that the daughter did not know what she had consented to. How about “Telling you after” – but that wouldn’t be good enough would it ?
Why is it that when parents say JUMP kids should do as they are told but when kids say LOOK they know nothing and must be told the error of their ways ?
The current guidelines infringed her parental rights under the European Convention on Human Rights, he told the judge.
I am sick and tired of this Human Rights rubbish. Aren’t you ??
Mrs Axon said she believed parents should be involved because “difficult discussions strengthen family life”.
I shall reveal the real meaning: “Mrs Axon said she thought her children should do as she said, not as she did and there would be hell to pay if they disagreed”.
The guidance deprived parents of the opportunity to advise their children and the child herself of the benefit of such advice, he added.
See that word in there ? advise. Implies discussion, agreeing to disagree. So the girl listens, talks and says “I’m keeping the child” – Mother agrees because child has seen the error of their ways and has consented to the pregnancy. But if the girl listens, talks and says “It’s going” then all of a sudden the child is incapable of rational thought and the full weight of the Law would be brought to bear by the mother. Can’t win can she – you really are determined to wreck her life even more aren’t you ?
From The Telegraph:
Mrs Axon stresses that her own teenage daughters Joy, 15, and Amber, 13, have not sought abortions and that she is bringing the case “as a matter of principle”.
Ahh……. this is one of those “I wannabe in the papers” things isn’t it ?
Mrs Axon – do not impose your views on me and mine. I won’t accept it from Tom “improving the Human Condition with every shiny-white smile” Cruise, so I’ll be damned if I’m taking it from you.
