So much for privacy.

Minors can ask a court to waive the requirement in cases where abuse is alleged or a medical emergency can be established. A grandparent or a judge could give approval in cases of alleged abuse.

Notarized consent?  Really?  So it's not enough to have parental consent, they need to spend money to get it a notary public involved, and tell a stranger about the situation?

Anti-choice legislators -- limiting abortion access a nickle and a dime at a time.
