Oi Angela leave those kids alone

News of a small victory for common sense reaches us from the Commons. It appears that Angela Watkinson's attempt to introduce a parental notification law into the UK has been foiled by our very own Dr Evan Harris.

Ms Watkinson's ten minute rule bill would have forced doctors and other health professionals to inform the parents or guardian of any under-16 year old seeking advice on contraception or abortion. Her reasoning being that the fear of being grassed to their parents would stop teenagers having sex. No dear it will just make them more likely to have unsafe sex, catch an STI, end up pregnant, and in some cases get beaten up by abusive parents. Idiot.
