I always find it amusing that liberals find that a fourteen year old is competent to consent to having an abortion without the consent or knowledge of her parents but is deemed to be incompetent to consent to the sex which got her pregnant.

Fourteen is too young to "consent". Five is too young to "consent". There's always a chance it was the parent who got her pregnant to begin with, too (or mama's boyfriend or a cousin or neighbor).

In a perfect world underage children would always have caring parents with good health insurance and would be taught sex ed and would never get pregnant at 14. We have statutory rape laws so that 20 year old @ss*oles wouldn't be tempted to talk innocent 14 year olds into sex. It's to keep the pedophiles and preditors from saying "she consented".
