Alaska Judge Hears Arguments in Parental Notification Lawsuit



Alaska’s parental notice law for minors undergoing abortions has been
the focus of a lengthy legal battle. The lawsuit, which was brought by
Planned Parenthood and two doctors, is expected to reach the Alaska
Supreme Court.

A provision in the law requires corroboration if a girl is pregnant as a
result of sexual abuse. Planned Parenthood argues that this provision
is too burdensome.
