MILWAUKEE, December 23, 2003 ( – A woman falsified her relation to her son’s girlfriend, claiming to be her aunt and legal guardian, in order to enable the girl to procure an abortion against the will of the girl’s parents.  The charge of “intentionally falsifying a patient health care record” is punishable by up to nine months in jail and a $25,000 fine if the woman is convicted.  The mother of the 15-year-old girl recently became aware of the incident through a letter the girl wrote.  The mother then contacted police.  The abortion occurred in February.

The state legislature is considering toughening consent laws, requiring a notarized form signed by a parent.  The sponsor of the bill, State Senator Joe Leibham (R-Sheboygan), was told by a mother in his district that her daughter was counseled by abortion clinic workers on how to get around the consent law in order to obtain an abortion.  The mother became aware of the plot before it happened.  Read LifeSiteNews coverage of a court case where a parent sued an abortion doctor successfully after he performed an abortion on her daughter without her consent:
