Minors can go to the doctor without parent permission. There's this thing called the HIPPA privacy practice now, and anything between patient and doctor need not be communicated to the parents.
Another thing I don't understand how the law lets this happen is - how can a minor be allowed to get an abortion without parent approval? This is really disgusts me. A minor can't go to their normal doctor without parent permission, they can't take advil without parent permission (most parents wouldn't take there child to court for that. People do that all the time), they can't really take any medications without parent permission, they can't get a permit without parent permission, and I could go on, yet, they can get an abortion without parent permission. What kind of B.S. is that?
The whole minor thing is not communicated in this document sweatdrop http://www.ligynonc.com/Hippa_notice.htm
Nevertheless, how can minors not be allowed to get a permit, take medication (minors really can't take meds without parent permission), any many more, yet they can get an abortion sweatdrop
