SCR 25 would amend the New Jersey Constitution to add a new paragraph:

The Legislature may provide that a parent or legal guardian shall receive notice before his or her unemancipated minor or incompetent child undergoes any medical or surgical procedure or treatment relating to pregnancy, irrespective of any right or interest otherwise provided in this Constitution.

This resolution was proposed in response to the New Jersey Supreme Court declaring the “Parental Notification for Abortion Act,” P.L.1999, c.145 (C.9:17A-1.1 et seq.)” unconstitutional in Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey v. Farmer, 165 N.J. 609 (2000).

STATUS

Companion resolution to ACR 48.
