Abortion rules for minors to include notarized parental consent
AUSTIN—The Texas Medical Board has adopted rules for minors getting abortions requiring written parental consent forms that must also be notarized, officials said.
The board developed the new six-page forms to implement legislation passed by state lawmakers in 2005. The law requires the written consent of a parent for an unmarried girl under 18 getting an abortion.
