And in another blatant attempt to usurp parental authority...

The democrat's leftlonging to continue to worship at the altar of abortion continues.

From here:

Democrats seek changes to abortion bill

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Confidants like grandparents or ministers who help pregnant teens should be protected from prosecution under a bill headed for Senate passage that would punish anyone who takes girls across state lines to end their pregnancies, Democrats said Tuesday.

"We should not criminalize the grandparents or clergy members to whom a teen in trouble might turn for help," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who plans to introduce an amendment to protect such confidants from prosecution.

But Republicans, reopening the abortion debate ahead of this fall's midterm elections, say Congress must defend the parents' right to know when their children seek abortions. The bill, sponsored by Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., would exempt parents and the teens from prosecution but punish anyone else who helps them seek an abortion in another state with fines and up to a year in jail.

This all goes along with the liberal mentality that all children are wards of the state, and the state knows best. Especially when it comes to ending one life for the convenience of another.

Have you ever seen any group so hell-bent on the destruction of life?
