ARTICLE X: MISCELLANEOUS, Section 22. Parental notice of termination of a minor’s pregnancy.

SECTION 22.

A Minors Right to Privacy Shall Not Deny the Right to Life to Any Human Being. Parental notice of termination of a minor’s pregnancy.

The Legislature shall not limit or deny the privacy right guaranteed to a minor under the United States Constitution as interpreted by the United States Supreme Court. Notwithstanding a minor's right of privacy provided in Section 23 of Article I, shall not be interpreted as to deny the right to life of any human being including but not limited to unborn children at every stage of biological development regardless of the method of creation. The legislature and judiciary are hereby prohibited from enacting any laws and/or making any judgments that would result in the destruction of an innocent human life. the Legislature is authorized to require by general law for notification to a parent or guardian of a minor before the termination of the minor's pregnancy. The Legislature shall provide exceptions to such requirement for notification and shall create a process for judicial waiver of the notification.
