Shot full of holes...

According to this article in Medical News Today, Washington state lawmakers shelved a law requiring parental involvement for body piercings on the grounds that hey, if you need Mom's okay to get a stud in your belly button, people could argue you should need Mom's okay for an abortion.

So, in order to make sure parents are kept out of minors' abortion decisions, we'll shut them out of minors' piercing decisions as well. Where is the real concern for the kids here?
