House OKs unmarried teens abortion bill , AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Texas House voted Friday to require unmarried girls under 18 to obtain their parents' consent before getting abortions. :,. Representatives sent the bill to the Senate, 114-28, after debate in which Rep. Ernestine Gloasbrenner, D-Alice, emotionally predicted it would lead to coathanger abortions in cheap motel rooms. ' Under the bill, a doctoncould be sent to jail for a year, slapped with a 12,000 fine and lose his license to practice medicine for a year if he failed to obtain the required consent forms before performing an abortion. The only way a girl could avoid telling her parents she needed an abortion would be to obtain an order from a probate judge authorizing a doctor to perform the abortion. . Rep. Bill Ceverha, R-Dallas, the sponsor, is a long-time opponent of abortion but said his purpose in introducing the bill was not to curtail abortions.. . "It gets parents back into the process at a very traumatic time in a young lady's life so they will be able to console and help her. J ... This is a very small step to bring a measure of sanity to an insane process," Ceverha said.
